Winsome Sears is the latest Republican to follow the media’s lead and turn on President Donald Trump. I don’t care how you feel about Trump’s 2024 prospects right now, the fact that so many people he helped get into the office her now going ‘knives out’ on him should make you concerned.
During an interview with Fox News, Sears changed her opinion on Trump completely. She went from being the national chairperson for a group that aimed to engage Black voters in the effort to reelect Trump to calling for him to step away.
“A true leader understands when they have become a liability. A true leader understands that it’s time to step off the stage. And the voters have given us that very clear message,” she said, after being asked specifically about Trump, who has been teasing a “big announcement” Tuesday at his Mar-a-Lago resort.
Earle-Sears listed a number of policy areas where she thought the Trump administration was due credit — including reducing unemployment levels among Black Americans and signing into law a bill to permanently provide funding for the nation’s historically Black colleges and universities. But when asked how she would respond if Trump announces a reelection bid next week, Earle-Sears responded: “I could not support him. I just couldn’t.”
“We have a clear mission, and it is time to move on,” said Earle-Sears, a former Marine, adding that some of the former president’s endorsed candidates had underperformed Tuesday.
“A house divided against itself cannot stand. And indeed that’s where we are today,” she said.

Again, I realize everyone has their own opinions on who should run in 2024 but where is the respect and loyalty from those Trump helped get into office? Even if you are one of the people who think it’s time for Trump to ‘fade away’ doesn’t the way Republicans supported turning on him make you feel a little uneasy? Is it just me?
