Days after the Wall Street Journal posted an opinion column saying that Republicans should abandon former President Donald Trump and "Trumpism," the ex-leader lashed out in a press statement.

Trump, who has been banned from social media and relegated to sending out press releases, attacked the conservative-leaning Journal.

Trump accused the paper of pushing "globalist policies such as bad trade deals, open borders, and endless wars."

"They fight for RINOS that have so badly hurt the Republican Party," Trump continued. "That's where they are and that's where they will always be. Fortunately, nobody cares much about The Wall Street Journal editorial anymore. They have lost great credibility."

The paper's editorial board blamed Trump for the losses of Georgia Senate seats and ultimately the U.S. Senate.

"Mr. Trump had one landmark victory in 2016 but he has cost the GOP dearly since," the Journal wrote.
