Former Speaker Boehner: There Is No Republican Party, There's Only a 'Trump Party'
Former Speaker of the House John Boehner believes the Republican Party no longer exists, suggesting it's been taken over by President Trump.
"There is no Republican Party. There's a Trump Party," the Ohio Republican said at an event in Michigan on Thursday.
"The Republican Party is kind of taking a nap somewhere," he added.
Kayleigh McEnany, the spokesperson for the Republican National Committee, disputed Boehner's comments, arguing that the party is very much alive and being led by the president.
"I don't agree with the tone he had there. It's a good thing that President Trump is the leader of this party," she said on "America's Newsroom."
McEnany added that Trump is clearly governing as a conservative, pointing out that Trump received more votes in 2016 than any previous GOP presidential candidate.
Boehner left the House of Representatives in 2015 after stepping down as speaker amid strong opposition from conservatives in the party.
