Donald Trump’s Victory Heralds 2nd Tea Party Movement
November 10th, 2016 • iizthatiiz
Donald Trump’s election victory demonstrates that the Tea Party has evolved into a 2nd movement.
Former presidential candidate Herman Cain refuted a widespread notion among media pundits and Republican operatives that Donald Trump did not have a ‘ground game’ for the 2016 election. “The people who went to the rallies, let me tell ya, that was his ground game”, Cain told Fox News host Sean Hannity.
“10,000 people show up for a rally, they’re going to tell 10,000 people … That was his ground game. And it worked! It was unconventional, but it worked”, he said.
Monica Crowley advanced the proposition that Donald Trump’s election victory demonstrates that the Tea Party has evolved into a 2nd movement. “What you saw in the groundswell that brought Donald Trump to the presidency last night, is the second iteration of the Tea Party movement.”
Crowley continued saying, “The Tea Party movement that began in 2009 as a wholesale rejection of Barack Obama and his far left radical policies […] they came back this time in a new form, they evolved, and they helped to elect Donald Trump.”
Cain added that, “there will be a political civil war within the GOP over the next couple of years, because Donald Trump has redefined, and he will reshape what Republicans stand for.”
