Trump could be seen Friday on his golf course near his new home at Mar-a-Lago, as fellow members of his party are being forced to choose sides on whether to embrace or reject him following his acquittal on a charge of ‘incitement of insurrection.’
His successor, Joe Biden, repudiated his ‘America first’ policy in a virtual speech to the annual Munich global security conference Friday morning. ‘I speak today as President of the United States, at the very start of my administration, and I’m sending a clear message … America is back,’ said Biden.
Arkansas Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson in a Thursday night television appearance called out Trump for his role role in the Jan. 6th MAGA riot, separating himself from former House colleagues Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.
‘It’s hard to play the middle road on this,’ he told CNN. ‘In an ideal world you can state the truth, which is that former President Trump bears a great deal of responsibility, key responsibility for what happened at our nation’s Capitol on January 6th.’
‘That is the truth. We ought to be able to say that,’ he said.
‘We don’t have to ignore him for the future. but it’s going to be difficult, and people are going to have to take a side on this. They’re going to have to determine whether Trump is going to dictate the future of our party … Or whether our principles or many other leaders are going to shape the future of our party … We should not be defined by one person, particularly a person who has made such an egregious mistake as what we saw happen on January 6th.’
Hutchinson, who like Graham served as a House impeachment manager during the Senate trial of Bill Clinton, was asked former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley seeking to meet with Trump at Mar-a-Lago. She was reportedly turned down, following publication of a Politico story where she condemned his actions on Jan. 6th, after earlier refusing to condemn his election overturn effort.

Graham has admonished Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who blasted Trump in a speech and an op-ed despite voting to acquit him in Trump’s Senate trial.
