In a recent conversation on CNN’s “The Source,” ex-Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan of Georgia, a known critic of former President Trump, expressed strong reservations about Trump’s leadership and character. Duncan urged Republicans to consider the future direction of the party and advised them to reject Trump’s potential 2024 presidential nomination, labeling him as an inauthentic representative of the party.

Duncan remarked, “The alarms are blaring for the GOP,” referring to the 91 legal charges that the former President faces in New York, Georgia, and on a federal level. He added, “All the indicators suggest he shouldn’t be our choice. His ethical standards seem more fitting for a criminal than a Commander-in-Chief. It’s crucial for us, as Republicans, to make a pivotal decision now.”

He also added that, Trump has the values of an “axe murderer,” while also calling him a “fake Republican.”

During the controversies surrounding the 2020 election results in Georgia, Duncan defended the legitimacy of the election, countering Trump’s baseless allegations about the state’s electoral outcome. Duncan, who now shares his perspectives on CNN, had previously testified in Fulton County related to a racketeering case against Trump and several others regarding their supposed efforts to reverse the 2020 Georgia election results.

On being queried about a statement from Trump’s former Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows, which is documented in his memoirs, Duncan commented that he hadn’t observed Meadows publicly challenging Trump. “Perhaps Meadows communicated privately, because, in public, I haven’t witnessed him counter Trump or his direction,” stated Duncan.

Meadows is also implicated in the legal proceedings in Georgia and had a recent court appearance. Commenting on complaints about court scheduling, Duncan said, “With multiple trials lined up, one can’t expect special treatment or adjustments just for personal reasons. It’s time to confront the consequences.”
