Former President TrumpDonald TrumpHouse Passes Suffrage and Electoral Reform Bill DEA Places Agents Outside Capitol During Uprising on Vacation Georgia Gov. Kemp says he would “absolutely” support Trump as a 2024 nominee MORE On Thursday, he slammed the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal for urging Republicans to leave him, blaming his GOP critics for the Georgia Senate’s losses.
In a statement released on Thursday, Trump accused the newspaper’s traditionally conservative public opinion section of “supporting globalist policies such as bad trade deals, open borders and endless wars”.
“You are fighting for RINOS, who have hurt the Republican Party so badly,” said Trump. “There they are and there they will always be. Fortunately, nobody cares about the Wall Street Journal editorial anymore. You have lost a lot of credibility. “
The explanation came in response to one Editorial about the many electoral losses of the GOP since Trump came into office.

During Trump’s tenure, Republicans lost the House, Senate, and White House. According to the editorial team, the approval rating of the former president never exceeded 50 percent in most of the polls.
“As long as the Republicans focus on the grievances of Trump’s past, they won’t be a government majority,” the editorial team concluded.
The Wall Street Journal also blamed Trump for the GOP’s drainage losses in two races in the Georgia Senate.
These races gave Democrats a Senate majority and came when the GOP was torn apart by Trump’s claims that the 2020 elections were stolen from him by widespread fraud.
Many Republicans believe Trump’s claims suppressed GOP voting in rural Georgia, where some voters did not believe their ballots would count, and in the suburbs of Atlanta, where right-wing independents have been shut down by GOP struggles and allegations of conspiracy .

“That last point was used against our senators and the $ 2,000 will be approved by the Democrats who bought the Georgia elections anyway – and McConnell made them do that!” Said Trump. “What’s even more stupid is that the National Republican Senatorial Committee spent millions of dollars on ineffective television advertising featuring Mitch McConnell, the country’s most unpopular politician who only won in Kentucky because President Trump supported him. Without that support, he would have lost hard . “”
McConnell won re-election with nearly 20 points, his largest profit margin since 2002.
