Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R) put out a warning to Trump haters hoping to push President Trump out of the GOP. He spoke about the climate of the GOP during a recent interview.
His words come as some GOP establishment figures work to remove Trump’s hold over the Republican party. Illinois Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R) has said he wants to “move on” from Trump while Republican Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney has said she will never stop trying to prevent Trump from achieving public office ever again.
The 2020 presidential election was not stolen. Anyone who claims it was is spreading THE BIG LIE, turning their back on the rule of law, and poisoning our democratic system.

However, Crenshaw says Trump will continue being an influential figure inside the GOP.
“I believe you won’t excommunicate a former president and not go into this kind of good and evil thinking…these are complicated topics that involve millions of Americans,” he said. “I’m a rational person about this…I refuse to let this drama take us over.”
Crenshaw also agreed with his colleague, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), about not allowing the GOP to be destroyed by the drama. He stressed that party outliers won’t be successful at their attempts to remove Trump.
