Trump is a ‘distraction’ for the Republican Party

Sky News host James Morrow said former US President Donald Trump had become a “distraction”.

“The more Republicans talk about Trump and are forced to talk about him by Democrats, that’s all the time they can’t spend talking about the key issues for American voters,” he told Reuters. Sky News host Cory Bernardi.

Mr Morrow said the cost of living, crime and immigration are three talking points Republicans “need to hit” hard.

“The more they get caught up in these fights between Trump and the Mar-a-Lago papers and things like that, it just blankets the Democrats,” he said.

“Trump is a distraction at this point.”
