The Trump Purge
Former President Donald Trump has continued his quest to purge the Republican party of those who speak out against him… starting with those 10 Republicans in Congress who voted to impeach him back in January. In the latest episode of The Point, CNN’s Chris Cillizza talks about the latest retirement announcement, this time from Rep. Adam Kinzinger and the force behind a Trump endorsement.
