GOP leadership is a complete and total failure and needs a massive overhaul, MyPillow founder Mike Lindell told Newsmax as he announced his plan to run for chairman of the Republican National Committee.

“It’s a big problem; it’s one of the most important organizations in our country and it’s: 2018, fail; 2020, fail; 2022, fail,” Lindell said on a Monday episode of “Eric Bolling The Balance.” “That’s three Fs in a row. And when you’re CEO or head of any company, you’re out. You don’t get three chances like that.”
“Ronna McDaniel has failed. She has done nothing but fail.”
Lindell charged that many are furious with the leadership of RNC chair Ronna McDaniel.
“I found out this from her own people in Michigan: They’re disgusted with her, and there’s big holes in the boat,” he said. “Let me tell you something, if you have a business and your footprint changes, it can’t be the same input or you’re gonna get the same output.
“You have to change the input. You’ve got to change the status quo to get something different. And these donors, Eric, are going ask, ‘Hey, why should we put another dime into the RNC?'”
Another online appearance by Lindell showed the MyPillow founder similarly lambasting McDaniel, arguing, “This should’ve been the biggest red wave in the history of the world. Why didn’t it happen? The donors want to know. The RNC completely lied to the American people and their donors.”

He alleged that McDaniel has done “a lot of non-things,” such as raising “a bunch of money for election integrity” while never spending “a dime toward it.”
“…she lied to the American people,” Lindell charged. “She lied to us all.”
Lindell reportedly said he was encouraged to oust McDaniel because many believe the GOP needs “a leader.”
“I’ve proven what I can do; I’ve got businesses, 2,000 employees,” said Lindell. “When I came up against adversity and my footprint of this country changes — like just for example — just Walmart dropping me in May, I had to make a decision, you know, to not lay off employees. They have families and such.”
“Instead, I quick opened up MyStore.com, moved them over there into shipping. I changed what I’m gonna do as a business, based on my footprint.”
The Mypillow CEO promised the GOP would face massive changes should he be elected RNC chair.
“It’s not going to take years, either,” he said. “It’s going to be very fast, and I’ve been down this road before where I faced adversity. Where you have to change your input to get a different output.”
“We need to start winning, Eric. This party has to start winning.”
