Former RNC Chair: It's Time To Leave 'Stubborn Little Brat' Trump Behind

Former Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele said Wednesday that it was time for the nation to move on and heal from Donald Trump, even as the president launches a fight against the still-uncertain results of the election. In an appearance on MSNBC, Steele was asked by host Nicolle Wallace about reports that Trump’s advisers are worried a defeat would lead to a further “sour grape-like performance.” Amid diminishing margins in his race against Democrat Joe Biden, Trump has railed against the electoral system, attacked democratic processes, initiated legal challenges in several battleground states and declared himself the winner despite projections that so far appear to suggest a very narrow contest. “It rings very true to me, and confirms what I heard from probably some of the same people,” said Steele, a frequent critic of the president. “我认为, as a nation and certainly for a president-elect, 乔拜登, when that moment comes, you plan accordingly. If he doesn’t want to come to the inauguration, it will be a blemish not on the United States but on him. If he doesn’t want to cooperate on the transition, it will not be a blemish on the United States but him.” In the lead-up to Election Day, Trump refused on multiple occasions to commit to a peaceful transfer of power should he lose. \”We need to stop carrying Donald Trump’s baggage as a country,\” former GOP chair Michael Steele said, telling America it’s time to move on from this president.— PoliticusUSA (@politicususa) 十一月 4, 2020 “We need to stop carrying Donald Trump’s baggage, as a country. We need to stop it,“ 他加了. “We need to now begin to free ourselves of this sickness and begin to heal ourselves and take the risk with someone like Joe Biden, who is prepared to move us in a different direction, and if Donald Trump wants to be that stubborn little brat standing in the middle of the mall stamping his feet refusing to move, OK.” Steele, who was chair of the RNC from 2009 到 2011, became a member of the anti-Trump Republican group The Lincoln Project in August and endorsed Biden for president last month. He said he was crossing party lines with the belief a Biden administration would heal the divide exacerbated by Trump and his administration.
