CNN’s Cilizza: ‘This Republican Party Is Donald Trump’s Republican Party’

‘Donald Trump had a hostile takeover of the Republican Party in the 2016 primary and then through election’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

CILIZZA: "I think he is right that this Republican Party is Donald Trump’s Republican Party. If you ever needed evidence, go look at the tax cut. You’re talking about a massive increase in the debt. That would not happen in 2010. There has been a capitulation. Donald Trump had a hostile takeover of the Republican Party, the 2016 primary and then through election. They’ve given over to it. So you will hear the voices like that say it but no one in the Republican Party should be surprised when Donald Trump does things are not traditional orthodoxy because he wasn’t a Republican until two years ago."
