Bobby Jindal says Republicans need to embrace Trump supporters

Former Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal wrote Republicans need to build on President Donald Trump’s appeal to blue-collar, working-class voters in order to survive into the future.

“We need to take over and reinvent the GOP. Mr. Trump won’t be the man to do it,” Jindal wrote in an essay published Thursday by The Wall Street Journal. “The moment immediately after Trump is the one that counts. It is possible that it took him to broaden us and that our subsequent existence will depend on his disappearance.”

Trump attracted blue-collar workers abandoned by the Democratic Party and frustrated by a status quo government, Jindal wrote.

“Trump voters elected a president, causing them to think they had won the revolution. They hadn’t. Their power is one man, and he has an expiration date,” Jindal wrote in The Wall Street Journal. “Republicans must learn to consolidate and build on that base. The next Republican presidential nominee after Mr. Trump will have a fighting shot at bringing home the people who like lower taxes and dead terrorists but bristle at his crude behavior.”

2. The republican party is 45 and his supporters. This IS the GOP.

The GOP doesn't have to embrace them, they created them.

3. Republicans need to embrace Trump supporters by the neck until they pass out.

Move them to a safe place where they are no danger to themselves or the country. St Helena or better yet Bouvet in the South Atlantic.
