According to a new report from The Independent, former President Trump is planning a “revenge tour” against political opponents after his impeachment trial is completed.
10 House Republicans, including Liz Cheney, the 3rd highest ranking Republicans in the House, voted for Trump’s impeachment.
According to the report, Trump has been advised it would be unwise to rail against incumbent Republicans while his impeachment trial is still pending.
Thus, Trump is waiting for what most analyst believe will be his inevitable acquittal in order to go after those who went against him.
Per the report “Mr Trump’s tour would reportedly focus on the ten House Republicans who voted for his impeachment, with one of the possible targets being Anthony Gonzalez, who represents a district outside Cleveland, Ohio, a district which Mr Trump won with 57 per cent of the vote in 2020. Mr Gonzalez himself fared a little bit better, getting 63 per cent of the vote in his first reelection bid.”
The report adds “the former president – who values loyalty over perhaps anything else – is also preparing to possibly start trying to take down any Senators who vote for his conviction in the upcoming impeachment trial or cross him in any other way.”
Those who could be targeted include Senator John Thune, who has urged Governor Kristi Noem to run against as well as Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski.
