Donald Trump was not happy with the Republican establishment.
President Trump let top Republicans know he was angry.
And Donald Trump delivered one ultimatum to the GOP that had all hell breaking loose.
ABC’s Jonathan Karl is out with a new anti-Trump book entitled “Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show.”
Karl is a certified Trump-hater, so the book was destined to paint a highly negative picture of Donald Trump’s final months in office.
In the book, Karl claims that on January 20 – when Trump left Washington for Mar-a-Lago – Trump called Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel where Trump supposedly threatened to quit the GOP and form his own political party.
McDaniel told Trump that would fracture the party forever and guarantee Democrats won every election going forward.
“I’m done,” Trump told McDaniel. “I’m starting my own party.”
“You cannot do that,” McDaniel told Trump. “If you do, we will lose forever.”
“Exactly. You lose forever without me,” Trump responded. “I don’t care…This is what Republicans deserve for not sticking up for me.”
Karl’s anonymous “sources” apparently could read Trump’s mind and claimed to Karl that Trump wanted to destroy the Republican Party because Trump believed its officials did not fight hard enough to overturn the results of the election after Trump claimed Joe Biden only won due to massive voter fraud in key states.
“Trump’s attitude was that if he had lost, he wanted everybody around him to lose as well, Karl writes. According to a source who witnessed the conversation, Trump was talking as if he viewed the destruction of the Republican Party as a punishment to those party leaders who had betrayed him — including those few who voted to impeach him and the much larger group he believed didn’t fight hard enough to overturn the election in his favor.”
The Karl claim that Trump held the Republican Party hostage based on anonymous accounts exposed why the public lost so much trust in the media during the Trump years.
Ronna McDaniel denied the story.
Donald Trump trashed Karl in a statement that read,“It’s a totally made up and fabricated story, it’s Fake News. Jonathan Karl is a third-rate reporter working for ABC Non-News.”
Trump also mentioned how the corporate media fabricated the Russian collusion hoax.
The Karl account of the Trump-McDaniel phone call is based on anonymous sources.
Without knowing who these sources are its impossible to know if they aren’t just making the whole thing up.
The Christopher Steele Russian collusion dossier was also based on anonymous sources and one of those sources ended up being a Clinton family confidant that Durham alleged made up allegations about Trump and his campaign that ended up in the dossier.
Critics dismiss anonymous source-based reporting like that in Karl’s book because the Russian collusion hoax and all the other anonymous-sourced “bombshells” – such as the Russians paying the Taliban bounties to kill American soldiers – turned out to be fake news and lies.
