According to a recent article from Newsweek, former GOP Representative Carlos Curbelo has stated that “the end is near” for former President Donald Trump. In an interview with MSNBC, Curbelo pointed to the recent impeachment trial and conviction of Trump, as well as the numerous legal challenges facing the former president, as evidence that his influence and power are rapidly diminishing.
Curbelo is not the only Republican to express concern about Trump’s future. In recent weeks, several other prominent Republicans have spoken out against the former president and his actions. For example, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell issued a statement condemning Trump’s role in the Capitol Hill riot on January 6th and voted to convict him in the impeachment trial.
Similarly, Representative Liz Cheney also voted to impeach Trump and has publicly criticized his efforts to undermine the election results. Cheney has been an adamant critic of Trump.
Other Republicans have also expressed concern about Trump’s continued influence within the party. Representative Adam Kinzinger, who also voted to impeach Trump, has called for the party to “move on” from the former president and to focus on more important issues, such as healthcare and infrastructure. Kinzinger has also criticized Trump’s attempts to spread misinformation about the election and has called for the party to distance itself from conspiracy theories.

Despite these criticisms, it remains to be seen whether the GOP will fully turn against Trump. Some Republican lawmakers, such as Representative Matt Gaetz and Senator Ted Cruz, have continued to defend the former president and have downplayed the significance of the impeachment trial. It is also worth noting that Trump still has a significant base of support within the party, and some analysts believe that he could still play a significant role in future Republican elections.
In conclusion, it appears that the end may indeed be near for Donald Trump, at least in terms of his political influence. While he still has some support within the GOP, a growing number of Republicans are speaking out against him and his actions. It remains to be seen whether this trend will continue and whether the party will fully move on from Trump in the coming years.
