During an appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation," McDaniel said that GOP voters would determine the fate of Trump's influence in the party, but stressed that party voters still supported his agenda."The voters are saying overwhelmingly they agree with what President Trump did in office," she said, while bringing up President Joe Biden's cancelation of the Keystone pipeline and criticism over the pace of school reopenings.

The final Senate vote was 57-43, ten votes short of the 67 votes needed to convict Trump.Some state parties responded to the Republican defectors against Trump through censures and rebukes. The party finds itself at a crossroads, having just lost the White House and holding legislative minorities in the House and Senate. It is unclear if Trump will attempt to run for president again in 2024, but he is expected to play a vocal role in the 2022 election.
However, McDaniel insisted that any disagreements will not impede the party's ability to stand together.
"We can have division within our party, and you can have state parties say, 'I disagree with that vote and I disagree with what you did there,'" she said. "But overwhelmingly our party agrees with each other on more than we disagree with each other on."
