As I work on threading the 2020 #DemPartyPlatform for Twitter users, I often think about how the republicans this year did not meet (even virtually),hash out,debate or draft a 2020 platform of their own.What kind of major political party chooses this path? #GOPBetrayedAmerica
What does this say about the
Republican Party of today? Are they unorganized? Unmotivated? Unable to come to consensus? Unsure? Useless? Corrupt? Sycophantic? Why don’t we ask @senatemajldr Mitch McConnell? He’s been sorta quiet on the matter. #GOPBetrayedAmerica
A Platform is an essential document;a blueprint that envelops & embraces the party’s values,principles, plans, proposals & priorities. All we know about 2020 Republicans: they completely support the 45th president & his agenda even tho he has been impeached & removed by voters.
