Trump Announces He’s Deciding Head GOP’s Fate Day After Next Primary

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Former President Donald Trump indicated on Monday that he will determine the future of Republican National Committee (RNC) chairwoman Ronna McDaniel after the GOP primary in South Carolina this month.

Trump wrote on Truth Social:

Things are looking great in the Presidential Race of 2024 against Crooked Joe Biden. We have Leads, in many cases substantial, in virtually every Head-to-Head Poll. The Primary seems to be over, but I’ll be going to South Carolina next week to finish off a very unpopular Candidate. On Thursday, I’m heading to Nevada for the Nevada Caucus, where there are 26 Delegates – Hopefully, we’ll get most of them.

He concluded, “In my successful run in 2016, the State of Michigan really came through – First time in Decades that it was won by a Republican, and it was headed up by my friend Ronna McDaniel. Ronna is now Head of the RNC, and I’ll be making a decision the day after the South Carolina Primary as to my recommendations for RNC Growth.”

Trump’s statement regarding his “recommendations for RNC Growth” did not include specific details, but it suggested that the outcome of the South Carolina primary would influence McDaniel’s position as the leader of the RNC.

McDaniel has faced substantial backlash from Trump supporters and a significant portion of the Republican base, who hold the RNC chairwoman responsible for the Democratic triumphs in 2018 and 2020, as well as the GOP’s inability to regain control of the Senate in 2022.

Trump insinuated the possibility of replacing McDaniel during an interview with Fox News anchor Maria Bartiromo on Sunday, commending her performance in managing his campaign in Michigan. In my opinion, she performed adequately, at first, during the RNC. Currently, it is likely that certain modifications will be implemented.

In November, an undisclosed informant purportedly in proximity to the ex-president informed CNBC that Trump’s sentiment against McDaniel has progressively soured.
