Hutchinson reiterated that Trump "should not define" the GOP's future. We have got to define it for ourself, ' the Republican governor, who can not seek reelection in 2022, added. Jim Hendren, to leave the GOP - citing Trump's incitement of the mob behind the deadly insurrection of the Capitol last month - as a move that "saddens" him and is a "warning sign" to the GOP that those within the party "would like to see a more civil dialogue", Hutchinson was asked on CNN whether Trump has succeeded in taking down the Republican Party as the Arkansas governor knows it. "This led to the violent events of January 6 when we all watched violence in the hall of our nation's Capitol and couldn't believe our eyes".

Trump, meanwhile, hasn't declared whether he would seek the 2024 nomination. But Hutchinson did not join calls for Trump to resign and said impeachment wasn't a practical option. He got a hero's welcome while driving by cheering supporters in Florida on Presidents Day.

"He will define our party if we let him define our party". That's a reason my voice is important.

In the interview, Hutchinson said "it's fine" that Trump is set to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), but "how about the other voices?" he said. "And he's got a good family. I worked with Ivanka (Trump) and others and they love America", Hutchinson said.

Governor Hutchinson, on a return trip to CNN this morning, further distanced himself from Donald Trump by saying in response to a question that he wouldn't vote for him should he be the nominee in 2024.

Dana Bash commented that Trump DOES define the party, as evidenced by the decision by Hutchinson's nephew, Sen.

Trump had stoked a campaign of spreading debunked conspiracy theories and false violent rhetoric that the 2020 election was stolen from him in the weeks before the insurrection.

How can the Republican Party claim to be the Blue Lives Matter party? But I would not support him, ' Hutchinson said.

Also, over 50 percent of respondents said the GOP should be "more loyal to Trump". "We've got to respond and identify with the issues that gave him the first election and gave him support throughout his presidency", he said, adding that Republicans should reach out to voters using conservative principles.
