House Republicans Haven’t Denounced Trump’s Day One Despotism

Yesterday, the disgraced former president and Republican frontrunner said that he wants to be a dictator on day one of his presidency.

A second Trump term is nothing short of an existential threat to democracy and freedom in America. Vulnerable Republicans must denounce this flagrant despotism and reject authoritarianism.

DCCC Spokesperson Viet Shelton:
"Donald Trump said it himself - he wants to be a dictator. House Republicans took an oath of office to serve their constituents, not Trump. Their support of Trump and capitulation of his full assault on our republic will cost them their majority."
