Democrats who don't fully oppose President Donald Trump could face primary opponents coming at them from the left, The Hill reports.

The political campaign We Will Replace You threatens to oust Democrats who work with Trump, an attempt to prevent Trump from gaining his own version of the "Reagan Democrat."

"We will only defeat Republicans on the local, state, and federal level if we go on the offensive," the group wrote on its website.

"Democrats must know there is a price for collaborating with Trump. Any Democrats who would give legitimacy or support to Trump do not represent us and must be replaced by people who will stand up for our lives, our values, and our democracy."

We Will Replace You co-founder Claire Sandberg told the Hill that the group "fundamentally reject[s] the assumption that Democrats can only win in red states by pandering to racists and big bankers."

She added, "The way we beat Trumpism and take back Congress and statehouses is offering a coherent vision of our own to put people back to work . . . We don't need to completely compromise our own values and principles."

Candidates for chairman of the Democratic National Committee discussed primary challenges during the debates. Eventual winner Tom Perez said he preferred that the party remain neutral during primaries.

South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Jaime Harrison came out against primary challenges.

"If Democrats want to be in a permanent minority, let's spend all of our time and energy fighting each other," he said. "But if we want to actually fight back against Donald Trump, let's spend our energy going after [Sen.] Ted Cruz [R-Texas]. Let's spend our energy going after the Republicans that are up."
