The Democrat Party’s negative fixation with former President Trump continues, despite him being out of the White House.
Already, many on the left are fuming because the Justice Department hasn’t released the former president’s tax returns. Ironically, some Democrats now allege that their beloved President Biden isn’t doing enough in regards to releasing Trump’s financial records.
Democrats have much more to worry about than Trump, though. Under leftist leadership, crime has gone up, as have cyberattacks against essential American resources. Meanwhile, gas prices are $6 per gallon in some states and inflation continues to rise.
Some Democrats within the party are worried that what’s happening now may cost them in midterm elections. According to Breitbart News, some Democrats are now working to distance themselves from attacks against Trump with 2022 congressional races approaching.
Steering Clear of Trump
Many Democrats have expressed an interest in distancing themselves from the 45th president altogether and instead focusing on their own goals and policies. Chris Taylor, the spokesman for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, relayed this sentiment.
Meanwhile, other Democrats, such as Rep. Madeleine Dean, Sen. Ben Ray Luján, and others stated that Trump will eventually place his own foot into his mouth. Dean, Luján, and additional Democrats maintain that continued focus on Trump only has the potential to hurt Democrats.
That a lifelong Democrat (me) is so grateful for DeSantis, no matter how crappy he may be in other areas, might be a problem come the midterms. I may never vote Republican, but I might not ever vote for a Democrat again, either. I wonder how many other voters are the same. https://t.co/wALtDlqVZf

Rep. Stephanie Murphy even stated not too long ago that Trump is currently a “private citizen” and that any transgressions he did or didn’t commit will be handled by the justice system.
This new push within the Democrat Party to steer clear of Trump is interesting. It certainly marks a major reversal from Democrats’ years of an ongoing obsession with Trump, an obsession that hasn’t fully waned even with Biden in office.
Changing the Narrative?
Some Democrats may indeed be ready to end the party’s collective fixation upon former President Trump. However, this doesn’t mean that Democrats will have a smooth-sailing victory in the 2022 midterms.

Even with Trump out of the equation, Democrats have shown how they handle power; they’ve also shown that they will go to any lengths to get what they want. The left is currently emboldened by a Biden presidency and they’ve laid all their cards on the table.
Democrats backed the defund the police movement; then, they shifted gears after crime rates surged in leftist communities. The left has also backed ending the filibuster, making Washington D.C. the 51st state, federalizing state-run election, and more.

In the few months of the Biden presidency alone, Democrat lawmakers have rejected bipartisanship as well; the most obvious display of this arrived when Democrats froze out GOP legislators to pass the $1.3 trillion spending package on party vote alone.
