In the 2020 elections, Trump and his party lost control of the White House, Senate and House of Representatives. “That has not happened under a president in four years [former President] Herbert Hoover, ”said Cassidy. Trump was then charged a second time for instigating the deadly January 6 riot in the U.S. Capitol after his supporters indicted Congress and invaded both chambers after speaking at a rally near the white man shortly before House had been upset about Trump’s election result. Cassidy was one of seven Republican senators who voted to condemn Trump on his impeachment trial. Trump also headed management of the coronavirus pandemic in the US, claiming the virus would “just go away” by downplaying the full dangers early and floating wrong treatments while more than 500,000 died, by far the highest death toll in the world World . When asked about Trump’s strength in the GOP, when the right-wing CPAC conference for the past three days praised the former president spokesperson for spokesperson and repeated some of his lies that he really won the 2020 election, Cassidy declined the idea that Trump did control the party. “CPAC is not the entirety of the Republican Party,” he said. He argued that the GOP should focus on those voters who switched from Trump to Biden in the November election. “When we talk to these issues, with these families, with these individuals, we win,” he said.
