Oof. Bad news for Donald.

Even the co-founder of Women for Trump has officially turned on the one-term, twice-impeached, scandal-ridden ex-president — and she’s letting everyone know it.

Politico published explosive new remarks today made by Amy Kremer — the woman who co-founded the Women for Trump group and was a prominent organizer of the infamous January 6th Capitol rally — in which Kremer took aim at Donald Trump’s recent controversial endorsement of Katie Britt. Britt was the candidate Trump chose after he publicly dumped Mo Brooks, who had the resounding support of Kremer and other notable Republicans. Yesterday, Britt won the Senate primary in Alabama.

Speaking with the publication, Kremer said, ” Donald Trump is disconnected from the base… It’s time for those of us in the movement to get back to basics, back to our first principles. … We were here long before President Trump came along, and we’re going to be here long afterward.”

The ex-president had originally thrown his “complete and total endorsement” behind incumbent Alabama Senator Mo Brooks. However, the pair went through a very public, very messy breakup after the former guy dramatically rescinded his endorsement for Brooks, after the Republican senator suggested that the GOP needed to “move on” from the 2020 presidential election and Donald Trump’s notorious Big Lie.

Kremer worked closely with her own daughter, Kylie Jane Kremer, to put together the rally that took place at the Ellipse near the White House on January 6th. However, it’s crystal clear at this point that the Women for Trump co-founder is a big supporter of Mo Brooks. In addition to the remarks she gave to Politico, Kremer took aim at the former president on social media, taking to Twitter ahead of Tuesday’s primary vote, writing, “I’m on the ground in Alabama & Trump got this way wrong. People are very angry at him. … I’m not sure they will get over this. They view it as a slap in the face & a disconnect from the [people]. I get it…”

A while back, we reported on the theory from Trump’s former spokesperson that the way to weaken and defeat the washed-up former president was through his endorsements. It certainly seems as though she hit the nail on the head.
