Charlie Kirk, the founder of Turning Point USA, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote freedom, said in an interview that President Trump created a new conservative movement with pro-American values that are different from those of the Republican Party that are aligned with big corporations.
“The conservative movement, thanks to Trump, is now a corporate-skeptic movement, a pro-worker movement, a free speech movement, a strict immigration movement,” said Kirk. “I don’t know where the kind of corporate Republicans have a home anymore.”
“And I think they’re really starting to realize it, legitimately,” he added.
Turning Point USA is known for being the conservative group that organizes forums, talks, and events with people like Ben Shapiro, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Dave Rubin on college campuses against the leftist pressure that dominates these environments, to address issues such as freedom of speech versus censorship, the right to life versus abortion—always from the traditional point of view.
According to a report by the Washington Examiner, Charlie Kirk was named among the candidates President Trump chose to lead the restoration of “patriotic education” in schools.
After the Democrats carried out the worst election fraud in American history, many “Republicans” switched sides and began criticizing Trump, joining the voices of Democrats who are asking him to accept that he lost and to give in.
Kirk set the example of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), who has been against Trump since his inauguration.
“Mitt Romney said something super interesting over the weekend—which is that, ‘the Republican Party lost its soul and it’s not coming back any time soon.’ Yes, it lost the soul of your father’s party,” Kirk continued. “Your father’s party was the Wuhan party, where we sent our jobs to Wuhan, that was the Republican Party of Romney and Rockefeller.”
Kirk explained that the president swept away the status quo of the Republican Party and created a new conservative movement with traditional values that has massive support from the people.
President Trump’s four years have been marked by the elimination of policies that favored large corporations to those benefitting the American people, such as the termination of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the modification of the H-1B visa program, both of which encouraged companies and allowed for cheap foreign rather than local labor.
“I actually think that there’s a lot of broad-based consensus that can now be around ending these endless wars, that can be around challenging corporate America and restoring a normal American way of life, and the corporate Republicans and corporate Democrats are going to realize, they have no infrastructure, except corporate chamber of commerce donors,” Kirk said.
