(ConservativeUnit.com)- Former President Donald Trump might not be in the White House anymore, but that hasn’t stopped the media from relentlessly attacking him.
This time, it’s the Wall Street Journal, and the former president hit back on Thursday at the paper’s editorial board for urging Republicans to abandon him and his platform. Former President Trump also hit out at his critics within the Republican Party for standing against the Make America Great Again agenda and causing the loss of two Georgia senate seats.
The statement, released through his Save America PAC, also laid into Republican campaign consultant Karl Rove for “losing for years.”
“He’s a RINO of the highest order who came to the Oval Office lobbying for 5G for him and a group,” Trump wrote. “After a lengthy discussion with rove and Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, I said no, they’re not qualified. Our Nation can do much better!”

Trump also accused the Wall Street Journal editorial board of supporting “globalist policies such as bad trade deals, open borders, and endless wars.”
“They fight for RINOS that have so badly hurt the Republican Party,” he said. “That’s where they are and that’s where they will always be. Fortunately, nobody cares much about The Wall Street Journal editorial anymore. They have lost great credibility.”
The Journal has traditionally had more of a conservative slant, but typically more to the Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney side of the Republican Party, rather than Trump and his MAGA agenda.
The former president was specifically referencing an opinion piece entitled, “The Grievances of Trump Past.” Published on March 1, the article suggested that President Trump may have support within the Republican Party, but that his support nationally was not as substantial as he believes.
Speaking about his hugely popular speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the editorial board said, “But if CPAC represented America, Mr. Trump would still reside in the White House, not Mar-a-Lago.”
“He lost to Joe Biden, the old Democratic warhorse, by seven million votes. He also lost five states he carried in 2016, even Georgia,” the board added.
The outlet even claimed that President Trump “cost the GOP two Georgia Senate races,” but former President Trump has repeatedly pointed to then-Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for the losses after congressional Republicans failed to back a £2,000 COVID relief check.
