RNC Chairwoman: President Trump Energizes Our Base
CHAIRWOMAN MCDANIEL: There is no greater fundraiser for our Party than President Trump. He energized our base, we've seen it at the RNC with 500,000 new small dollar donors since he took office, and then we're going to get him out campaigning. He turns out our base. He energizes them. We want our country to continue doing well and that's what President Trump has done for our country under his leadership with low unemployment, with jobs coming back, with wages going up. Our country is on a comeback, and President Trump is leading the way.
RNC Chairwoman: Democrats Are Moving Further To The Left
CHAIRWOMAN MCDANIEL: They definitely are energized around opposition. Opposition is one unifying factor and this happens when the party not in power tries to get those majorities back. So that’s certainly motivating them. But they also are doubling down on policies that have fractured their party and they’re putting their thumb on the scale in races across the country where the national party is coming in and putting a litmus test on their candidates and saying, “You’re not good enough for our party, we don’t like your thoughts so we’re going to purge you out of our party." Look what they did to Dianne Feinstein in California this past weekend. Dianne Feinstein, a standard-bearer for the Democratic Party is now too conservative for them. That's how far left their party is going and they’re not hiding the fact that they are going to put a litmus test out there and put their thumb on the scale and determine which candidates they want and not let the voters decide.
