The liberal media is using every tool in its arsenal to disband the growing cadre of Americans who support Donald Trump, his policies, and the candidates that adhere to them.
They will say anything, report lies, and smear the Former President in an attempt to end the momentum surrounding – not just Trump – but the entire Republican Party.
The latest Fake News rumor is a doozy, and Trump is having none of it.
Former President Donald Trump denied reports that he threatened to leave the Republican Party and start his own party after losing the 2020 general election.
The claim itself was presented in ABC Chief Washington Correspondent Jonathan Karl’s forthcoming book, Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show.
“ABC Non News and 3rd rate reporter Jonathan Karl have been writing fake news about me from the beginning of my political career,” Trump said in a statement responding to Karl’s claim. “Just look at what has now been revealed about the Russia, Russia, Russia hoax. It was a made up and totally fabricated scam and the lamestream media knew it. It just never ends!”
On Monday Trump also confirmed that he will be delivering a speech and taking part in a roundtable later that evening at the National Republican Congressional Committee dinner in Tampa, Florida.
Karl wrote that Trump made the threat during a phone call with RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel that took place on Trump’s final flight on Air Force One, which carried him from Joint Base Andrews outside of Washington, D.C., to his post-White House home in South Florida.
According to Karl, Trump accused McDaniel and the RNC of failing to back his claims of election fraud and declared that he would take retribution by launching his own party.
“I’m done. I’m starting my own party,” Karl claims Trump told McDaniel. ”
Karl goes on to claim that five days later, the RNC threatened Trump that if he were to move forward with his plan, they would stop funding his election fraud lawsuits and somehow render the Trump campaign’s 40 million-strong email list “worthless.” Trump eventually backed off his threat, according to Karl’s book.
A number of RNC officials outright denied Karl’s claims.
“This is false. President Trump and I have a great relationship,” McDaniel said in a statement.
In addition to McDaniel’s denial, multiple RNC staffers are calling out Karl’s lie that Trump planned to start his own party.
A number of Trump aides also shot down reports in January that the former president was exploring launching a “Patriot Party.”
Trump’s then-spokesman Jason Miller said at the time that Trump “has made clear his goal is to win back the House and Senate for Republicans in 2022. There’s nothing that’s actively being planned regarding an effort outside of that.”
This so-called “report” just goes to show the utter desperation liberals are facing in an era of history where a majority of Americans are finally willing to speak truth about the positive strides Donald Trump made for the country.
Their endless smearing, fake news stories, and constant lies have not but a dent in Trump’s popularity — and now they are scrambling to come up with a Plan B.
