The neocons want to push Trump to the side so they can put forward a front man like Pence, De Santis, Rubio, Cotton, etc. who will assume the same role as George W. Bush, a puppet who initiates a regime change war against Iran. Trump is a douchebag, but a useful douchebag who acts as at least a partial constraint on the neocons. We need the populist insurgency within the GOP as a counterweight to the party’s neocon leadership, and we need the progressive insurgency in the Democrats to function as an obstacle to neocon efforts to take over the Democrats.
Republican strategist, Keith Naughton, explains why Mike Pence is the only Republican that could beat Donald Trump in the GOP Presidential Primary.
