The Grand Old Party was once the political party of Ronald Reagan, one of the most influential conservative faces of the 20th century. Now, Ron Reagan, the son of the former president, believes that the GOP has changed its course and is more the party of Donald Trump.
When he was interviewed by CNN’s Ana Cabrera on Sunday, October 18, Reagan described the 2020 GOP as a party of “grifters.”
Reagan bashed Trump and his Republican allies for using the presidency and taxpayer money to enrich the president and themselves.
Reagan told Cabrera, “We’ve got a bunch of grifters in the White House. They’re treating this as a grift…. They’re using the hotels and the golf clubs to profit off the presidency.”
Reagan told Cabrera, “When I think of my father, I think of words like integrity, decency, dignity, honor and patriotism — not nationalism, but patriotism — all of those qualities are in very short supply in this White House. And, frankly, the Republican Party has been complicit in degrading those values.”
