Democrats are not only trying to remove the duly elected president of the United States, they have been trying to secretly pass measures that will only benefit them in future elections — including the 2020 presidential election.
But just days after the Democrat-controlled House passed a bill to fight voter ID laws across the United States, a judge ruled in favor of the Republican Party and President Donald Trump.
Former Massachusetts GOP Gov. William Weld and former Illinois Republican Rep. Joe Walsh have launched long-shot campaigns to unseat Trump as the GOP presidential candidate for the 2020 election.
They know they can’t win, so their admitted goal is simple: force Trump into engaging in Republican presidential primaries to drain his time and resources.
But that plan has been falling apart given several states are ruling Trump does not have to take part in state primaries and that state Republican parties can award the president all of their electoral votes in the primaries.
In South Carolina, Circuit Judge Jocelyn Newman has ruled the South Carolina GOP acted lawfully and in accordance with its statutes by canceling its 2020 Republican primaries to endorse Trump’s reelection, the Epoch Times reported.
The law “does not give Plaintiffs a legal right to a presidential preference primary, and the Court will not substitute its own judgment for that of the General Assembly or the SCGOP,” Newman wrote in her order.
South Carolina is among several states that have canceled Republican primaries and caucuses next year, an effort that helps Trump consolidate his support as Democrats work to winnow their large candidate field.
The South Carolina Democratic Party didn’t hold presidential primaries in 1996 or in 2012, when Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama were the incumbents.
Earlier this week, Hawaii followed suit when Republicans in the state cancelled their upcoming presidential caucus and will instead commit their national party convention delegates to the re-election of Trump.
No other presidential candidate declared for the Hawaii party ballot by the Dec. 2 deadline, so Hawaii Republican Party Chairwoman Shirlene Ostrov said she cancelled the party caucus and preference poll “rather than spend tens of thousands of dollars to bring people out to vote for our single candidate.”
For the record, none of this is unusual.
Canceling primaries, caucuses, and other voting is not an unusual move for the party of a White House incumbent seeking a second term.
It’s guaranteed that Trump will not partake in any Republican primaries.
This will allow Trump and Republicans to focus all of their time, money, and resources to focus on defeating the Democrats in 2020.
What do you think Democrats and Never-Trumpers will try next up after their impeachment goes bust? Collusion didn’t work, this wont work.
What next? Think they’ll try to impeach Trump over some old parking tickets?
