CNN anchor Jake Tapper took aim at pro-Trump Republicans in a somber but blistering monologue on Sunday, suggesting the American experiment could be coming to an end.
"The success of what is called the ‘American experiment’ has been of interest to our friends here in Europe and around the world ever since the term was coined in the New York Tribune in 1860, just before another attempt to destroy the Republic because one group of Americans did not like the results of an election," Tapper began Sunday's "State of the Union" while reporting from Germany during President Biden's trip to the G7 Summit. "The New York Daily Tribune noted then that, quote, ‘The social, and especially the political institutions of the United States have for the whole of the current century been the subject in Europe, not merely of curious speculation, but of the deepest interest,’ unquote."
He continued, "The question asked then, and now… ‘Is it possible for a government to be permanently maintained without privileged classes… and without either hereditary or self-appointed rulers is the democratic principle of equal rights, general suffrage and government by a majority, capable of being carried into practical operation and that, too, over a large extent of country, unquote.'"
