  A new group pushes the post-Trump GOP to reject its 'lazy' devotion to tax cuts One of the biggest dilemmas for the Republican Party is what it should do after the Trump presidency, an eventuality that some on the right have been mulling since the early days of his administration. In March, a group of conservative thinkers started a new organization called American Compass, which aims to move the Republican Party past clichés about Ronald Reagan’s policies. “Applying conservative principles doesn’t mean just keep flipping through the 1980 playbook until you find the right tax cut,” said Oren Cass, a founding member of American Compass who serves as its executive director.

Scarborough also blasted Trump for acting as a "fascist," noting that Trump has called on his supporters to commit violent acts and repeatedly suggested arresting his political opponent.

"My Republican party, the Republican party of my youth, remains silent. I can never go back there." The former congressman said.

"So the question is, do I remain an independent for the rest of my life? Do we have an expanding Democratic party where Democrats welcome conservatives and suburban voters that helped elect Joe Biden this time?" he said. "I mean I think that's the big question."

Trump has been in a long-running feud with the "Morning Joe" hosts that has included Trump attacking Brzezinski's appearance. Scarborough has repeatedly insulted the president and said in 2017 that Trump suffers from "early onset dementia."

Last month, he suggested that Russian President Vladimir Putin was more likely to take a tough question from a reporter than Trump.

Scarborough formally registered as an independent in 2017, and has been a frequent critic of the GOP in the wake of the Trump presidency.
