Mary Trump Says That Donald Trump Just Got ‘Punished’

Rep. Ken Buck’s sudden announcement to depart Congress has sent ripples through the Republican Party, hitting former President Donald Trump the hardest, according to his estranged niece, Mary Trump.

Buck, representing Colorado’s 4th Congressional District, has openly criticized his party’s directions, including impeachment discussions and support for Ukraine, leading to his unexpected decision to leave.

Buck’s departure throws a wrench into the works for House Speaker Mike Johnson, challenging him to navigate an even tighter GOP majority in an already divided conference.

It also throws off Rep. Lauren Boebert’s reelection plans, amplifying the turmoil within the party.

According to Mary Trump, Buck’s departure emphasizes the Republican leadership’s failings, particularly their refusal of a bipartisan border deal and reluctance to support Ukraine.

It shines a light on their “unwillingness” to address critical issues.

Mary Trump suggests swing voters and independents will likely pay attention to these developments.

She poses the possibility of a Democratic majority in the House under Joe Biden’s second term as a chance to eradicate fascism and strengthen democracy.
