Never-Trumper Steve Schmidt: The Republican Party 'Needs to Burn to the Ground'

147 views

During Thursday's edition of MSNBC Live With Katy Tur, host Katy Tur interviewed two of the network's favorite Republicans, Never-Trumpers Elise Jordan and Steve Schmidt. Tur pointed out that Jordan and Schmidt are the hosts of a new podcast called "Words Matter." Schmidt went on a tirade against the current Republican Party, which he called "the party of Trump."  He effectively issued a call-to-action for all of his fellow Never-Trumpers: "For there to be any redemption of a right of center conservative party in the United States of America means the party of Trump must be destroyed politically. It's like a fire...For there to be new growth of a conservative movement, of a right of center party, the one that I joined in 1988, that's what needs to happen to the party of Trump. It needs to burn to the ground."
