Trump Melts Down After GOP Congressmen Quit

Former President Donald Trump recently blasted the Republicans who are retiring from the House — trimming the GOP’s already slender majority in the chamber via Mediaite.



It has been noted that in a post to his Truth Social platform Sunday, the former president aimed Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) – who has said he will not reconsider his decision to leave Congress, despite a reported plea from House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA).

“Never forget our cowards and weaklings!” Trump wrote. “Such a disgrace”

The GOP is in a vulnerable spot as a result of Gallagher’s resignation. On April 19, the congressman from Wisconsin is scheduled to retire. Republicans are probably going to have a razor-thin 217-214 advantage in the House after that date. This implies that in order to pass any legislation, the GOP can only afford to lose one Republican vote.

A special election would have been scheduled to fill the seat if Gallagher had resigned before April 9 per Wisconsin law. As of right now, the position will be empty until January 2025, when the next Congress takes office. The GOP majority was also weakened by the resignation of Rep. Ken Buck, who left shortly after Gallagher. Buck resigned earlier in the month.

“I am not going to lie on behalf of my presidential candidate, on behalf of my party,” Buck told NewsNation on March 3. “And I’m very sad that others in my party have taken the position that, as long as we get the White House, it doesn’t really matter what we say.”
