On Thursday, President Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., replied to Senator Bob Corker’s remarks that the Republican party is becoming a “cult-like situation.”
Trump Jr. said that if the GOP is like a cult it’s “because they like” what President Trump is accomplishing.
“I think that’s ridiculous,” Trump Jr. said on “Fox & Friends” of Corker’s comment.
“I think, you know what, if it’s a cult it’s because they like what my father is doing.”
“You see real Americans actually winning for a change, conservatives actually getting things done,” he continued.
According to The Hill, Trump Jr. later also cited Senate Democrats’ agreement to not include protections for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in the funding bill to end a government shutdown earlier this year.
“Americans want to see someone who’s actually going to have conviction, not just talk about it with great sound bites and then when it comes to game time they sit there and fold,” the President’s son said.
“They want someone who’s going to be like my father and fight and actually want to win, and actually want to win elections,” he added.
Corker on Wednesday stated that several members of the GOP are becoming “cult-like” in their support of the President. The senator’s remarks came after his bill to rein in Trump on tariffs was blocked from getting a vote.
“We are in a strange place. I mean, it’s almost, it’s becoming a cultish thing, isn’t it? And it’s not a good place for any party to end up with a cult-like situation as it relates to a president that happens to be of — purportedly, of the same party,” Corker said.
