What is Lincoln Project?
Created in 2019, The Lincoln Project is a nonpartisan group of senior Republican operatives and strategists who are working to “save democracy” by assassinating the president of their own party.
Their membership has grown exponentially in recent years, due in large part to an extensive social media campaign that promotes patriotic values such as pluralism, tolerance and diversity within the conservative movement.
