Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday said that the GOP should find a leader that doesn’t focus on being a “victim”. This was a criticism of former President Trump, who repeatedly called himself a “victim” during the announcement of his next presidential campaign on Tuesday night.
Pompeo took to Twitter to say that this was the time to find a serious leader and to look forward instead of focusing on “the rearview mirror claiming victimhood.”
While Pompeo did not mention Trump explicitly, his comments came only a few hours after Trump’s speech. During the speech at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida Trump had said, “I’m a victim, I will tell you. I’m a victim.”
Trump had been teasing the announcement that he would make a third run for the White House for months. A day before the disappointing midterm results he had also said that he would have a big announcement a week later. However, after the “red wave” failed to materialize many Republicans began to criticize and turn their back on Trump, as many of his endorsed candidates failed to win the election.
The Senate elections were won by the Democrats, while the Republicans managed to flip the House but only with a narrow majority.

Trump as a victim is an ultimate oxymoron.
Pompeo didn’t throw Trump under the bus. Just another title that’s misleading to get clicks. And Trump is a victim of total media and establishment hatred. lie after lie after lie. Dare anyone else could withstand the lies from hatred. It is time for him to ride in to the sunset and let younger conservatives take over. Ron DeSantis is the best choice but if Trump wins the nomination I will vote for him for the third time.
Under the bus is a good place for Trump.
Jail would be an even better place.
Judas RINOs showing themselves now. They want someone the party can manage in order to keep their status quo instead of bringing the country back from ruin. The more people come out against Trump, the more you know he’s the one for the job!
