Trump children ‘angling for leadership’ within Republican Party

Published on January 17, 2021 by

A post-Donald Trump presidency will see sizeable division within the Republican Party which could leave the door open for the president’s children “angling for leadership” within the party.

The New Republic’s Alex Shephard told Sky News there is a “huge division” within the GOP right now stemming from the President’s post-election behaviour.

He said the traditional party power base “wants Donald Trump out,” with some in the party’s ranks believing the president has made it “toxic in a lot of corners”.

“Most importantly the donor base that these Republicans rely on has just dried up”.

Mr Shephard said the President wants to hold onto his power within the party as seen by recent appointments of “loyalists” to key positions at the Republican National Committee.

“His sons and his daughter Ivanka will certainly be angling for leadership in a number of ways.”
