President Trump mopped the floor with his political opponents in 2022, reminding the nation that he remains the unchallenged leader of the GOP platform on the heels of a heated midterm season.
On New Year’s Day, Trump’s Make America Great Again campaign released a statement cataloging the 45th president’s impressive victories in 2022, reminding critics that he is far from gone or forgotten.
“People President Trump strongly Opposed and Fought Against,” the statement was titled. Included in the statement was a list of political opponents who either retired in 2022 or who were defeated in the election cycle.
Notable victories over the following included Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., and former Gov. John Kasich, R-Ohio.
Cheney was defeated in 2022 in her reelection race by Trump-endorsed challenger Rep. Harriet Hageman, R-Wyo. Cheney had garnered the ire of many MAGA supporters for her often vitriolic criticism of the 45th president, and it appears that her attack on the America First movement prompted voters to give her the boot from Wyoming.
Rep. Kinzinger’s retirement was yet another momentous victory for Trump. Kinzinger, like Cheney, was one of several GOP “RINOs” who voted to impeach Trump in 2021, and his withdrawal from the political arena was also a big win for the MAGA movement.
Trump’s list of political victories additionally included the following:
In December, Trump further touted his endorsement success record in the 2022 midterms, punching back against negative narratives from the media that labeled the America First movement as a failed effort. Per RSBN, Trump’s success rate was 232 wins out of 252 endorsed midterm races.
In a Sunday statement, Trump reiterated the success of the 2022 year, while pointing out that some of the races that were lost were due to the “‘abortion issue,’ poorly handled by many Republicans, especially those that firmly insisted on No Exceptions, even in the case of Rape, Incest, or Life of the Mother, that lost large numbers of Voters.”
