Alexandra Rojas: ‘The Republican Party Is Still Figuring Out What To Do with Trump’

‘While the Republicans are in this sort of Civil War and are going to continue to be down that path, I think for a little while because all of the conversation about what the future of the Republican Party looks like are in the context of Donald Trump’

EXCERPT:

ROJAS: "Well, I mean, the party — the Republican Party is still figuring out what to do with Trump. He's too unpopular to fully embrace, but he's too popular within the base of the GOP to completely denounce and move on. I think it's important to call out that Nikki Haley, folks like Lindsey Graham who are also trying to quell the civil war, at least bring some peace, also prior to four years ago where on the record saying how much they disliked the former president and now they have to own the responsibility of what their party has become. And so, again, while the Republicans are in this sort of civil war and are going to continue to be down that path, I think for a little while because all of the conversation about what the future of the Republican Party looks like are in the context of Donald Trump, it's just going to be very difficult.”
