Clear Message About Who Is The Leader of The Republican Party

A handful of the most powerful and popular Republican governors took part in a town hall and made one thing abundantly clear: Donald Trump is the leader of the party.

As part of the Republican Governors Association conference, Republican Governors Ron DeSantis of Florida, Kristi Noem of South Dakota, Bill Lee of Tennessee, and Chris Sununu of New Hampshire joined Fox News host Sean Hannity in Nashville, Tennessee.

Hannity wasted little time asking all four of the governors if they support Trump and if he’s still leading the party in terms of his policies.

Below is a partial transcript of the exchange, via Grabien:

HANNITY: “Is the future of the Republican Party ‘America first,’ Make America great again,’ or would you add and subtract from any of that?”

DeSANTIS: “I think that’s the core of it. I mean, I think President Trump got the basics right. As times change, you have to look to see what new issues come along. You know, Reagan’s agenda was right for that time, people will talk about it, but you’ve got to look to see what’s coming down the pike.”

HANNITY: “Governor?”

NOEM: “Well, election integrity, those five things you mentioned, we do them all in South Dakota and we have honest, fair, transparent elections.”

HANNITY: “Clearly establishment Republicans don’t like Donald Trump. I would argue Donald Trump has the base of the Republican Party.”

NOEM: “Absolutely.”

HANNITY: “So do they have a chance of unseating him?”

NOEM: “Of unseating…?”

HANNITY: “You know, to take the Trump agenda or if the President chooses to run in 2024?”

NOEM: “The Trump agenda lifted everybody up, the most disadvantaged people, the minorities in this country, it lifted them up and gave them opportunities.”

HANNITY: “Record-low unemployment.”

NOEM: “Anybody who says that was the wrong agenda for this country, they’re wrong themselves and they are not truly conservative.”

HANNITY: “Real quick, yes or no, it’s Donald Trump still the leader of the Republican partner?”

DUCEY: “Well, he’s the former president, he’s the largest voice —“

HANNITY: “Is he the leader?”

DUCEY: “Let’s be the 75 million plus party, let’s be a party of addition.”

HANNITY: “Is he the leader?”

DUCEY: “Yes.”

REYNOLDS: “Yep.”

HANNITY: “Is he the leader?”

SUNUNU: “I don’t think anyone defines the leadership of the party. It’s defined by principles, by core values, by good governing.”

HANNITY: “Is it ‘America first,’ ‘Make America great again’?”

SUNUNU: “Absolutely. It’s all part of it.”
