The Conservative Political Action Conference this year will literally feature a gold statue of former President Donald Trump, but one prominent conservative commentator says it's time to move on from the one-term, twice-impeached president.
Alice Stewart, a former communications director for Sen. Ted Cruz's (R-TX) 2016 presidential campaign, told CNN that it's ridiculous to see conservatives continuing to worship Trump even though he cost them control of the White House and Congress.
"As a Republican, quite frankly, I'm tired of not winning," she said. "And that was a big promise from Trump is winning, and we've lost the House, the Senate and the White House under his leadership."
She also lamented that CPAC is no longer about conservative policies and ideas, but rather about the idolization of a president who decisively lost the 2020 election.
She also unfavorably compared Trump to GOP icon Ronald Reagan, who won two landslide elections in the 1980s.
"Ronald Reagan spent every single day building converts," she explained. "And unfortunately, Donald Trump makes enemies. Ronald Reagan spent every day building the Republican Party. Unfortunately, Trump spends a lot of time tearing it down. And Ronald Reagan was much more secure in who he was. Unfortunately, Donald Trump is a little bit more about his own ego."
