Former Texas congressman Will Hurd said on Sunday that the Republican Party should have nothing to do with Donald Trump, especially after the events of Jan. 6.
Asked what role Trump should play in the future of the party Hurd said, “I think very little, if not none at all. This is a president that lost the House, the Senate, the White House in four years. I think the last person to do that was Herbert Hoover, and that was during the Great Depression.”
Hurd said he believes the GOP will win control of the House next year but if the party continues to argue over who won the election then that makes it nearly impossible.
“We have an opportunity, but we can’t do that if we’re talking about the lies of an election that went wrong or succumbing to conspiracy theories,” he added.
His comments came one day after it was reported that Trump will be speaking at CPAC next week. Among the topics he’s discussing is the future of the Republican Party which some congressional Republicans have made clear, involves Donald Trump.
