“We have expanded the Republican party”
That was Donald Trump’s response to a reporter at last nights press conference who questioned whether the political outsider was dividing or uniting the GOP.
Trump pointed toward the dramatically higher voter turnout in the 2016’s primaries compared to previous presidential election cycles, that is pulling massive numbers of Democrats and Independents into the Republican fold.
GOP leaders have wrung their hands for years over their inability to expand the base of the party. The irony of course is that many of these same establishment stalwarts are now scrambling to torpedo the candidate who has made this longtime desire possible.
