Eric Trump pointed to the blowout loss suffered by Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) in the Wyoming GOP primary Tuesday as evidence that the Republican Party “is actually the Trump Party now.”
In appearances this week on the Newsmax show “Eric Bolling The Balance,” Eric Trump cited the record of success candidates who have been endorsed by his father have enjoyed. Those candidates have won an astonishing 176 times against only 6 losses.
The inflexible days of the Grand Old Party have come to an end, said Eric Trump, executive vice president of the Trump Organization and son of former President Donald Trump.https://t.co/iKfhK5Wnis

He told host Eric Bolling, “That’s incredible! No one’s ever had a record like that.”
Eric Trump discussed how President Trump has forced the GOP to move past blindly supporting establishment “Republican-in-name-only” (RINO) candidates nationwide. The Trump family has also established a track record of bringing an end to stagnant political dynasties from both parties, including the Bush and Clinton family strangleholds on Washington.
Eric Trump proudly declared the end to another political dynasty that is past its expiration date, the Cheneys.
Before becoming the Trump-endorsed GOP candidate for Wyoming’s sole House seat, Harriet Hageman was virtually unknown nationally. However, after receiving Trump’s support, she rose to victory in Tuesday’s primary, smashing Liz Cheney by nearly 38 percentage points.
Trump was especially enthusiastic about endorsing Hageman after Cheney voted in favor of the president’s impeachment in 2021 and then agreed to serve as the vice-chair of Nancy Pelosi’s hand-selected January 6 Committee.
Eric Trump told Bolling on Wednesday, “Last night, my father killed another political dynasty.” He went on to describe the Wyoming race as “another successful RINO hunt.”
He did go on to say that he could give all of the credit for the win to his father and Hageman. Some of the credit had to go directly to Cheney, who made a calculated decision to take her Wyoming constituents for granted.
He noted that she became more interested in Washington power circles than the record amounts of fentanyl pouring into the country, crippling inflation hammering ordinary Americans, an impending recession, and the illegal immigration crisis at the southern border.
Trump said that Cheney’s choice to fixate on attacking his father as part of the January 6 Committee hearings imposed a heavy cost on how she was seen by voters. He said that she proved to Americans that she cares more about political revenge than solving real-life problems.
Eric Trump also commented on Cheney’s description of her political legacy as being similar to that of President Abraham Lincoln. He said that Cheney is “no Abraham Lincoln, Abraham Lincoln was actually liked by the American people.”
