Former President Donald Trump took a sweet victory lap after his nemesis Congressman Anthony Gonzalez resigned rather than lose a primary to a Trump backed candidate.

Trump said: “RINO Congressman Anthony Gonzalez, who has poorly represented his district in the Great State of Ohio, has decided to quit after enduring a tremendous loss of popularity, of which he had little, since his ill-informed and otherwise very stupid impeachment vote against the sitting President of the United States, me. 

“This is no loss for Ohio or our Country and, most importantly, we have a great candidate who was substantially leading Gonzalez in the polls, Max Miller, who I have given my Complete and Total Endorsement.

“Max is a tremendous person who will represent Ohio well. Good riddance to Anthony, he can now get himself a job at ratings-dead CNN or MSDNC!”

Gonzalez was one of 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Trump. 

Gonzalez called Trump a ‘cancer for the country’ before saying: “Since entering politics, I have always said that I will do this job for as long as the voters will have me and it still works for my family.

“As Elizabeth and I consider the realities of continuing in public service while juggling the increasing responsibilities of being parents to our two beautiful children, it is clear that the best path for our family is to not seek re-election next fall.

“While my desire to build a fuller family life is at the heart of my decision, it is also true that the current state of our politics, especially many of the toxic dynamics inside our own party, is a significant factor in my decision.

“Please know that every word has meant the world to me and given me hope that the chaotic political environment that currently infects our country will only be temporary,” Gonzalez said in announcing his retirement.

“You can fight your butt off and win this thing,” he told a local newspaper, “but are you really going to be happy? And the answer is, probably not.”

Gonzalez told The New York Times he had an “eye-opening” moment this year when he and his family arrived at the airport in Cleveland, only to be greeted by police officers. They were part of additional security measures being taken after his vote to impeach Trump.

“That’s one of those moments where you say, ‘Is this really what I want for my family when they travel, to have my wife and kids escorted through the airport?’” said Gonzalez.

The congressman, who will turn 37 on September 18, has a wife and two young children.

He was poised for a primary with Trump-endorsed Republican Max Miller.
