Geoff Duncan, the former Republican lieutenant governor of Georgia, expressed strong personal disapproval of former President Donald Trump on Monday, comparing his values to those commonly associated with violent criminals, such as a “axe murderer.”
During an interview on CNN’s “The Source,” Duncan, a prominent Trump opponent, expressed his views on the direction of the Republican party. He emphasized the need for Republicans to make a definitive decision and asked fellow conservatives to take action in order to stop Trump from obtaining the GOP presidential nomination in 2024. Duncan characterized Trump as a “fake Republican.”
During the interview, Duncan, who had previously expressed his views on election integrity while serving as lieutenant governor, highlighted a number of concerns regarding Trump. President Trump is presently facing 91 criminal charges as a consequence of ongoing investigations conducted by authorities in New York, Georgia, and at the federal level. Duncan emphasized further that Trump made substantial contributions to the national debt during his presidency. Duncan suggested that the aforementioned factors, along with Trump’s perceived lack of moral rectitude, should discourage Republicans from selecting him as their presidential nominee.
“As a Republican, the dashboard is going off with lights and bells and whistles telling us all the warning things we need to know,” Duncan stated.
In addition, he stated, “Everything we need to see to not choose him as our nominee, including the fact that he’s got the moral compass of more like an axe murderer than a president. We need to do something right here right now. This is either our pivot point or last gasp as Republicans.”
The former lieutenant governor characterized the current juncture as a crucial juncture for the party, arguing that it must make a strategic adjustment or face the possibility of decline.
Duncan, who testified before a grand jury in the legal proceedings against Trump and his co-defendants for allegedly attempting to subvert the outcome of the 2020 election in Georgia, also responded to a passage from Mark Meadows’ memoir. Meadows asserted in his memoir that it is his responsibility to confront the president when he exhibits poor judgment. Duncan conveyed skepticism regarding Meadows’ actual influence.
“Well, he must have whispered in his ear and not said it out loud because I certainly have never seen examples of him standing up to Donald Trump or the ridiculous nature of where this is headed,” Duncan asserted.

Meadows is currently facing allegations in connection with the Georgia case and appeared in court on Monday.
Trump has posted vitriolic assaults against the left-wing prosecutors who are pursuing him. He asked for the dismissal of one case.
“It has just been reported that aides to TRUMP prosecutor, Deranged Jack Smith, met with high officials at the White House just prior to these political SleazeBags Indicating me OVER NOTHING. If this is so, which it is, that means that Biden and his Fascist Thugs knew and APPROVED of this Country dividing Form of Election Interference, despite their insisting that they “knew nothing.” It’s all a BIG LIE, just like Russia, Russia, Russia, & not knowing about son’s business dealings. DISMISS CASE!” Trump posted to his social media account.
“Deranged Jack Smith & his team of Thugs, who were caught going to the White House just prior to Indicting the 45th President of the United States (an absolute No No!), have been working on this Witch Hunt for almost 3 years, but decided to bring it smack in the middle of Crooked Joe Biden’s Political Opponent’s campaign against him. Election Interference! Today a biased, Trump Hating Judge gave me only a two month extension, just what our corrupt government wanted, SUPER TUESDAY.
