CNN's Navarro: Every Anti-Trump Republican Has Retired, Lost Or Died Due To Trump's "Reign Of Terror"

|

CNN political commentator Ana Navarro shares that people who never spoke to her about politics are now coming to her with a concern of having such an "unstable" president such as Donald Trump. Navarro later spoke of Trump running a "reign of terror" in the Republican party that has resulted in party opponents retiring, losing, or dying.

"Donald Trump has dedicated himself in the last three years to building a reign of terror in the Republican party," Navarro said Thursday night. "If you confront him in any way he comes out and attacks you and he attacks you hard and he controls the Republican base. So that means that they lose primaries."





"Practically every Republican that spoke out against Trump either had to retire, lost primaries, lost generals or died," she added.

ERICA HILL, CNN HOST: We see the president railing against the impeachment inquiry, that of course is nothing new. But it really does seem that in the last couple of weeks, certainly the last couple of days, it's occupying a lot of the space in his head and a lot of space on his twitter.

ANA NAVARRO, CNN CONTRIBUTOR, REPUBLICAN COMMENTATOR: I'm not how much space there is in his head, but whatever there is is being occupied by this. Look, the clip you just played from that rally is probably one of the few moments that you can play on TV, even though it's -- you know, at this time, because it was expletitive-filled, it was unhinged, it was incoherent, it was unpresidential, it was untrue. It was -- just in or un in front of practically every word because that's what it was. Inaccurate. But it was also getting lapped up by the base.

You know, I've noticed in the last few days, and remember I live in Miami. I live in a purple state and I have noticed people that never talked to me about politics coming up to speak to me about politics and the concern of having a president who is this unstable.

HILL: Really?

NAVARRO: Yeah...

NAVARRO: Donald Trump has dedicated himself in the last three years to building a reign of terror in the Republican party. If you confront him in any way he comes out and attacks you and he attacks you hard and he controls the Republican base. So that means that they lose primaries.

Practically every Republican that spoke out against Trump either had to retire, lost primaries, lost generals or died. And he still kept attacking even a dead man. So this is who Donald Trump is. This is when you see somebody like Lindsey Graham, who, when he was opposing Donald Trump, was dead man walking in the Republican primary in South Carolina. Now that he is Robin to Donald Trump's Batman he walks on water. So he has built the reign of terror. They are afraid of mean tweets from Donald Trump.
