If the Commander-In-Chief, President Donald Trump is impeached, how would it affect the Republican Party? On the flip-side, how would 2 full terms in office by Trump shape the G.O.P.? When you publish a blog about Wagering on Trump’s perhaps imminent removal from office, the thought has crossed my mind a time or two.
It would seem obvious that if Donald Trump was indeed removed from office, the Republican Party would suffer. It’s logical. That, however, is only part of the story. If President Trump is removed, it would have to be almost totally at the hands of a Republican Congress. Every time a President has been impeached, it has been at the hands of an opposition party. A Republican lead Impeachment, and Senate conviction could actually help the party in the eyes of the general public.
“They put America First” would be the slogan they would use. The G.O.P. could (rightfully) argue that they put country above party, and saved America. For a generation, the Republicans would have an unimpeachable patriotic advantage when it comes to National Security issues.
I think that if they sense the Republic is being threatened in some way, they’d act fast. Only time will tell.
If President Trump wins re-election in 2020 and serves 2 terms, the G.O.P. could be in trouble
Love him or hate him, there’s only one Donald J. Trump. He’s a once in a lifetime political figure that will, for better or worse, be discussed in history books (on tablets) for a long time. At this time, there’s no heir to the Trump base. A movement without a leader isn’t a movement, and what may be left after 8 years of Trump style politics of the Grand Old Party may have left for another Party.
