Divorce yourself from party of Trump -- George Wen

Divorce yourself from party of Trump -- George Wen

  • 0

No collusion, former President Donald Trump and his defenders repeatedly claimed.

Now U.S. intelligence agencies have confirmed the Trump campaign had a direct pipeline to Russian intelligence and provided polling data about swing states to them. In turn, it's possible Russian intelligence used the data to assist the Trump campaign’s election efforts in 2016.

Let’s be clear about Vladimir Putin’s Russia. They imprison the political opposition. They poison and murder them. Their goal is to undermine American democracy and restore the glory and power of the Soviet Union. They are doing this in France, Germany, the United Kingdom and elsewhere. They know that if they can create mistrust in our elections and democratic institutions, they can defeat us.

Did you buy it? Do you believe the "big lie" that Trump won in 2020? If so, please stop. Don’t let them win. Ask yourself these questions: Do you want a world that is predominately democratic or autocratic? Do you want a world of dictators and autocrats? Do you want a world of military regimes, oppression and presidents for life? You almost had one.

The Republican Party still belongs to Trump. So I ask you, is it time for you to divorce yourself from a party with an autocratic infatuation?

George Wen, Delavan
