Elise Jordan on the Republican Party: ‘It’s Not the GOP, It’s the Party of Trump’

‘Donald Trump’s hold on the Republican Party is stronger than ever’

EXCERPT:

JORDAN: "Donald Trump’s hold on the Republican Party is stronger than ever. You look at Justin Amash and his fortunes in Michigan where he has a strong constituency. He served his constituents well. He has a great reputation, but he’s likely to get primaried. And you see the wrath coming down on him. You look at what happened to Mark Sanford. That was the cautionary tale. And then, now you see where everyone has given in and they realize they're going to be out if they’re not part of the party of Trump. It’s not the GOP. It’s the party of Trump."
