Complacency is our enemy. Anyone that does not embrace the @realDonaldTrump agenda of making America great again will be making a mistake.

I think this tweet will come back to haunt you. Five years from now when you’re trying to rebuild your party. Trump is a moral vacuum, a black hole in the center of the universe of Republicanism.

Did you seriously tweet this? Are we in 1933 Nazi Germany now?
