Trump Lashes Out at Club for Growth! 

Trump Lashes Out at Club for Growth! 

As the former President mounts his run to retake the White House, in typical Trump fashion, he is making it quite clear who his friends and enemies are. Case in point, the ex-president has lashed out at the once supportive conservative group, the Club for Growth.

The group earned Trump’s ire after he was left off the guest list of its annual donor retreat. In a post on his social media site, Truth Social, Trump ripped the group as the “Club For NO Growth” and recounted how his ties to the group fell apart after disagreements over his endorsements in high-profile races in Alabama and Ohio last year.

He also laid into the club for initially opposing his candidacy in 2016 before repeating his claim that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged” against him.

“The Club For NO Growth, an assemblage of political misfits, globalists, and losers, fought me incessantly and rather viciously during my presidential run in 2016,” Trump wrote. “They said I couldn’t win, I did, and won even bigger in 2020, with millions of more votes than ‘16, but the Election was Rigged & Stollen.

“They asked to get together on Endorsements of candidates, we did, and had MANY WINS & NO losses. The relationship broke up over my Endorsement of certain great people in Alabama & Ohio. I won them all!”

Trump’s comments came after the Club’s President, David McIntosh, told reporters last week that the group had invited several prospective Republican presidential contenders to its annual donor retreat in Florida but had left Trump off its list. This despite the fact that Trump is so far the only declared candidate in the race and, of course, resides in the Sunshine State.

Among those who were invited to the gathering are former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former Vice President Mike Pence, Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R) and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R).

“We’ve invited all of the folks listed here,” McIntosh said. “Not Trump. But we’ve invited the others.”

While he hasn’t announced whether he intends to run for the White House in 2024, DeSantis has emerged as an early favorite for the Republican nomination and perhaps the biggest threat to Trump’s hopes of recapturing the White House.

A new poll from the Club for Growth shows DeSantis leading Trump in a hypothetical head-to-head 2024 primary match-up, with the Florida governor taking 49 percent of the vote to Trump’s 40 percent – which may account for whom they appear to be backing.

    Trump will never acknowledge that he is the past, and a troubled past at that!

      Trump didn’t even take a salary for the entire four years! Joe has robbed us all blind and made a killing,as has his brother and drug addict son!

        Sorry Tammy, it was three out of the four years that Trump kept his word. He did not donate his 2020 salary, breaking his promise not to take Presidential pay. Not lying about it for three out of four years might be a record. Although, in the other years, he wrote off his salary as charity, so he did get something out of it even when not taking it.

        Don sells digital virtual art animations of himself in costume like a drag queen performance for $99 a pack making millions. Those millions went right in his pocket. There’s all sorts of licensed memorabilia he sell, often his face on Superman’s body is a big hit with the suckers, MAGA hats for $45. All this money goes to the campaign. Then he spends his campaign dollars at his various venues to turn it into revenue for himself. Hundreds of millions every year. You are just part of his money machine, a money machine that feeds his lifestyle.

        Against the national budget, Joe’s salary does not amount to much and his net worth is only $8M. He has never been rich, he does not seem to profit greatly from government. Hunter, that’s another story.

        How did Hunter Biden or Joe’s brother make money by robbing us?

    Trumps constant Vigil of the Left has opened the eyes of the American people.
    Do you think with the way things were, DeSantis or any Republican would have had
    any type of fair chance to win if not for the constant pushing of Trump that the election was stolen.
    They would just steal another election from DeSantis.

    People are tired of hearing Trump. Then you are tired of hearing the truth!
    Every person on the list of invites are all fine people and probable worthy of the oval office.
    The person making their ability to win and run possible is still going to be Trump and his efforts.

      Darren: The Big Lie is a big lie. And soon it will be revealed once again, this time in court. Again.

      Sixty five court cases shot down so far. A half dozen recounts. His own staff, under testimony, told him,

      FOX will soon go down for billions for extending The Big Lie to voting machine manufacturers.

      You can’t prove The Big Lie and we-the-people will soon man-spain it to you once again, in court, under oath, with the truth and some guilty-guilty-guilty verdicts.

    Frank, I hope for the good of the Country, all accusations turn up false.
    This is what Democracy is all about.
    Democrats using the position that as an individual I am not allowed to question the government
    is in direct opposition to the constitution.

    The big lie as you say was perpetrated by the FBI, CIA, and the news media were used as sheep.
    This is undisputable as the Twitter files have shown. The rigging of the machines did not have to exist,
    as propaganda from the Top Ranks wanted to lead this country in the direction THEY WANTED!

    The Lap Top story alone was kept from you, me, and anyone voting.
    THAT IS THE BIG LIE!!!!!!!

    Trump should have been in the White House. I would like to say for better or worse, but you know as well as me it would have been for the better. You, can always write you articles from your bunker as the Bombs drop.
    Thanks again Biden.

      The Big Lie refers to a rigging of the election, a rigging that Trump has claimed since like 2015. Basically, the only election not rigged is the one he won. It has been continually and consistently refuted since 2020 with Trump failure upon failure to prove otherwise. You can blame the press and our governmental institutions, but Trump lies, and he lied on this, and that’s where it ends. It’s a lie, you will not get anyone else except Trump and his suck-ups to say or prove different. Quite the opposite, soon FOX and others will pay big time.

      Lies matter, printing them matters. If there is harm, you may feel the pain of telling a lie. And you won’t be Jonesing to tell more lies then.

      As to the laptop, that’s another story and one that does not make the 2020 election rigged. And the chain of evidence is so bad, Guilliani tainted, that good luck getting truth out of that one. But convict all those who break the law, why not.

      “Trump should have been in the White House.” Well, it’s not for the lack of trying. Court cases, recounts, insurrections, electoral college tampering, State official coercion, multiple State level armed incursions, nope— not for the lack of trying. But you are losers and you did what you do best —– LOSE. Suck in up buttercup.
