“Values of an axe murderer”: Trump faces massive criticism from his own ranks

Geoff Duncan is actively attacking former U.S. President Donald Trump. The Republicans have so far been rather reticent in criticizing the presidential hopeful, but now more and more politicians from their own ranks are voicing criticism of the 77-year-old.

Donald Trump is seeking re-election to the White House in 2024. But the harbingers for an election couldn’t be worse, with several state as well as federal indictments currently underway against the former U.S. president. Geoff Duncan, the former lieutenant governor of the state of Georgia who was still in office there in 2020 when Trump’s election was allegedly rigged in his state, has told CNN now lashed out at his fellow party member with criticism. “As Republicans, we’re hearing all the alarm bells ringing right now. We’re getting all the warnings we should be getting.”

Duncan compares morality to that of an axe murderer

Duncan continued, “Ninety-one indictments, fake Republicans, $8 trillion in debt. Everything we need to see to not vote for him as our nominee, including the fact that his moral compass is more like an ax murderer than a president.” In addition, Duncan was asked about Trump’s former head of state, Mark Meadows, who is scheduled to testify at a hearing later today. Meadows and Trump, along with 17 others, were indicted in Atlanta on charges of trying to tilt the 2020 presidential election in that state.
