Nick Ayers, Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff, said during a Republican National Committee meeting that the Republican party would work a lot better if they unified and called for a “purge” of those who opposed Donald Trump.
According to Politico, Ayers was speaking to rich donors when he asked, “imagine the possibilities of what can happen if our entire party unifies behind him? If — and this sounds crass — we can purge the handful of people who continue to work to defeat him.”
Ayers told donors that they need to do what they can to push people in Congress to “change the current leadership in both the Senate and the House.”
Ayers proposed they cut off funding and threaten to recruit and give money to opponents.
