“Former President Trump on Thursday lashed out at the Wall Street Journal editorial board for calling on Republicans to abandon him and blamed his GOP critics for the party’s Georgia Senate losses,” according to The Hill.
“In a statement released Thursday, Trump accused the paper’s opinion section, which has a traditionally conservative bent, of supporting ‘globalist policies such as bad trade deals, open borders, and endless wars.’ [emphasis added]
“‘They fight for RINOS that have so badly hurt the Republican Party,’ Trump said. ‘That’s where they are and that’s where they will always be. Fortunately, nobody cares much about The Wall Street Journal editorial anymore. They have lost great credibility.’… [emphasis added]
“The paper wrote that despite Trump’s claims about his dominance, he lost to President Biden by 7 million votes and fumbled away two traditionally red states — Arizona and Georgia.
“During Trump’s tenure, Republicans lost the House, Senate and White House. The former president’s approval rating never reached above 50 percent in most polls, the editorial says.
“‘As long as Republicans focus on the grievances of the Trump past, they won’t be a governing majority,’ the editorial board concluded.”
