Here's what Republicans have said so far about Trump's refusal to concede

All-in on Trump

There are many die-hard Trump members in Congress – including allies in the House Freedom Caucus and ambitious members eager to lead the GOP after Trump – who dutifully defended him during his four years in the White House.

“Don’t accept the media’s statement. Don’t admit it, Mr. President. Fight hard.”

Doug Collins, Georgia MP

Trump even bet on Rep. Doug Collins, who finished third in the Georgia Senate special election to lead the state’s recount efforts after being called after Biden – the first time since Bill Clinton in 1992 that he was in a Was presidential election for Democrats.

Let things play

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is among those Republicans who have taken a more humble position, arguing that Trump has his right to bring his legal suits without accepting the president’s apparent allegations of rampant fraud.

This includes many ordinary members in both houses of Congress, as well as people like Senator Mitt Romney, whose regular criticism of Trump has received undue attention in Washington.

McConnell said in the Senate Monday that Trump was “100 percent in his right to investigate allegations of irregularities and weigh his legal options.”

“If this time around there were major irregularities of a magnitude that would affect the bottom line, every single American should want them to be brought to light,” he said. “And if Democrats are confident they didn’t come out, they should have no reason to fear an additional test.”

The rip-the-band aid caucus

The smallest group of Conservatives is certainly the group of those who are ready to break away from Trump and his antics, especially now that he has suffered ultimate political defeat.

This group shares similarities with other Trump-era GOP critics in that they are often those who are retiring or have lost their seat in Congress – in other words, have little to lose – and are ready to raise the alarm to beat.

A group of 30 former Republican House members signed a statement calling on Trump to accept his electoral defeat.

“As former Republican Congressmen who swore an oath on the Constitution, we believe that President Trump’s statements alleging election fraud are efforts to undermine the legitimacy of the elections and are unacceptable,” wrote The Signatories We hope that regardless of party or belief, the nation will recognize that President-elect Joe Biden won this election. ”
