Stacey Abrams Claims Trump Is ‘Symptom’ Of GOP’s ‘Disease’ Of Removing Inconvenient Voters

The failed Democratic Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams went on “The View” on Tuesday morning to claim that former President Donald Trump was a “symptom” of the Republican Party’s “disease” of “gaming” the system to remove voters they find to be inconvenient.

“It’s very dangerous what’s going on right now,” said host Joy Behar. “This comes down to Republicans needing to back Trump’s big lie that the election was stolen. It’s the same reason Congresswoman Liz Cheney’s going to be ousted as GOP conference chair tomorrow. Senator Lindsey Graham says the Republican Party can’t grow without Trump. Is he right? Is he right? Why are they clinging to the cult of Trump, may I ask? He is a loser.”

‘Trump Is A Symptom’

“I think the attention to Donald Trump is a symptom,” Abrams replied. “It is not, however, the disease. The symptom is that he found a shortcut to leadership. He found a shortcut to actually doing the work. He decided that the only way to win was not by adapting to the populous that he was to serve, it was about gaming the system to remove voters he found inconvenient. That is what the insurrection on January 6 was about.”

“The fact we are watching the Republican Party, one of the two standard bearers for democracy, rest their hopes on success by removing their own people from leadership rather than listening and adapting and internalizing what should be a natural belief in the United States, that every vote counts and that no voter should be impeded from being able to cast an eligible ballot, that should be deeply concerning to people of all parties,” she added.

Abrams Wants To Run For President

This comes days after Abrams was asked in an interview if she hopes to run for president in the future.

“Do I hold it as an ambition? Absolutely,” Abrams replied.

“And even more importantly, when someone asks me if that’s my ambition, I have a responsibility to say ‘Yes,’ for every young woman, every person of color, every young person of color who sees me and decides what they’re capable of based on what I think I am capable of,” she said. “It’s about, you cannot have those things you refuse to dream of.”
