But it’s totally not a cult:
A fuming fundraising text from the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) has angered Trump-supporting conservatives after it called them “traitors” for not donating enough money to the GOP. “You’re a traitor,” the NRCC boomed in a mass text, presented as a message against supporters who had “abandoned” him.
The message, which was shared widely on social media, lambasted its recipients for doing “nothing” to help the Republican Party regain the House of Representatives and questioned whether Trump was “wrong” about them, before warning, “This is your final chance to prove your loyalty or be branded a deserter.”

“He’s a private citizen and he’s entitled to his own opinion,” says NRCC chairman Tom Emmer when asked about Trump’s continued focus on the 2020 election and potential distracting effects on the 2022 midterms.
