I have never seen the Republican Party as Strong and as Unified as it is right now. Thank you!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 19, 2020
More than a few of his critics were ready to step in with a fact-check. To dispute the strength portion of his claim, they noted the wave of GOP losses in local, state and national elections since Trump took office in 2017.
And as for unity, Trump faces multiple major ad campaigns aimed against him, not just by Democrats but also at least two Republican groups: Republicans for the Rule of Law, led by conservative pundit Bill Kristol, and The Lincoln Project, spearheaded by conservative attorney George Conway ― husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway ― as well as GOP strategists Rick Wilson, Jennifer Horn, Steve Schmidt and John Weaver. Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci has also vowed to launch an anti-Trump PAC among Republicans.
The GOP lost over 650 seats since you took office. You’re political cancer. https://t.co/yts1QvMzBZ— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) January 20, 2020

I have never seen the Republican Party turn a blind eye to corruption, criminal behavior, and nepotism as they are doing right now under Trump. They’ve become a mindless cult similar to Kim Jong Un’s followers in North Korea. Chairman Trump can do no wrong to them. Shameful.— Eugene Gu, MD (@eugenegu) January 19, 2020

I have never seen a party that abandoned their principles quite like the GOP has since you've been President.— David Weissman (@davidmweissman) January 19, 2020

I have never seen the Dems so strong, unified and committed to doing one thing! Impeach and remove Trump, then vote the rest of the GOP traitors out of office. Beware, hell hath no fury than the people you have screwed...— Hedy Salazar (@queeniema52) January 20, 2020
Well, when you force out everyone who is not loyal to the wealth & power of the Trump Family, it gets smaller, but more unified!— David Rothschild (@DavMicRot) January 19, 2020
And dwindling.— Rick G. Rosner (@dumbassgenius) January 20, 2020
I’m lost. Also strong and unified are not proper nouns. https://t.co/wlJSoj1H49— Paige Francis Markley (@paigefranmark) January 20, 2020
