DNC Statement on Trump’s GOP Litmus Test

Today, Donald Trump reminded the Republican Party that they’re beholden to his election lies. DNC spokesperson Ammar Moussa released the following statement:

“Like we’ve been telling everyone — the Republican Party is Donald Trump’s party, and this is what happens when Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy bend over backwards to indulge his dangerous lies, failed leadership, and complete incompetence. Republicans can’t have it both ways – they can’t kiss Donald Trump’s ring and then also refuse to answer for his most egregious lies that led to the violent January 6 assault on the Capitol and continue to undermine our democracy. Donald Trump’s stranglehold on the Republican Party speaks to their complete ideological bankruptcy and is the anvil around their necks going into 2022.”
