“I think Donald Trump cannot win at the general election, and that is why it is so important that he does not win the primary”
“My name is John. I’m from Arizona. I’m a lifelong Republican. I voted for Donald Trump in 2016 and in 2020. I supported him and I supported his policies. I liked the America First policy. I liked his position on China. But since the last election, President Trump has lost my support. He’s lost my respect and he’s lost my vote.
“I think his childish and self centered attacks. When fellow Republicans only proves that he really doesn’t care about the party, he only cares about himself. And it’s not about us. We’re not about America. It’s only about him. I think Donald Trump cannot win the general election. And that’s why it’s so important that he does not win the primary.
“And then we put up a new candidate. Someone who is a better reflection of the party and can move the party forward and win the election, obviously, because I think it’s very important to win in 2024. America is…we’re at a tipping point and we need to really rein America back in from the leftist ideals and directions it has taken in the last couple of years.
“And as a party, I think we really need to move forward as a party. And to do that, we need to be a Trump less Republican party. There’s no question in my mind that Donald Trump has too much baggage. The problem with Donald Trump is he’s going to bring out people who wouldn’t normally vote, who are going to vote against him.
“He’s going to bring out Republicans who are going to vote against him. And most importantly, he’s going to bring out independents who normally are center right. Who are going to vote for the other party because it’s Donald Trump. So I think his baggage, not only sinks him, it sinks us. He’s focusing and rehashing yesterday’s losses.
“He’s not looking at tomorrow. He’s looking at yesterday. And I think as a party and as a country, we need to look at tomorrow. We need to build for tomorrow and we need to win tomorrow.”
