Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “Trump fires back at Wall Street Journal editorial board after they urge GOP to leave him behind”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Former President Donald Trump fired back at the Wall Street Journal on Thursday, issuing a statement saying the editorial board has "lost great credibility" after they published a piece asking, "If he was so great politically for the GOP, why is the party now out of power?"

In an editorial printed Monday, the board wrote that "as long as Republicans focus on the grievances of the Trump past, they won't be a governing majority," lambasting the former president while chiding, "if 2020 was so fabulous, why are Republicans shut out of power up and down Pennsylvania Avenue?"

The Journal pointed to Trump losing to President Joe Biden by 7 million votes and blamed the former president for Republicans losing in January's Georgia Senate runoff races — which handed Democrats control of the upper chamber.

He went on to blame "Georgia Republican leadership and Governor [Brian] Kemp (R)" in what he called "a rigged election," along with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for the Senate flipping blue.

The Hill noted that "Many Republicans believe Trump's claims suppressed the GOP vote in rural Georgia, where some voters didn't think their ballots would count, and in the Atlanta suburbs, where right-leaning independents were turned off by the GOP infighting and claims about a conspiracy."
