Everyone thinks that Trump has the 2020 election on lock.
They think this because the Democrat infighting is destroying the party and the Republicans don’t have an alternate candidate.
But now that Trump was betrayed by someone close to him, it could cost him the 2020 election.
President Trump has been on a tear lately. His approval numbers keep going up and up, and the way he’s handled some of the problematic situations we’ve dealt with as a nation has been nothing short of brilliant.
But just because Trump is looking good on the run-up to 2020 doesn’t mean he’ll win again in 2020.
That’s what a former advisor and big-league GOP donor has said about Trump.
Throwing cold water on Trump’s campaign, Anthony Scaramucci, who once served as Trump’s former White House communications director, said it might be best if the Republicans replace Trump before the election.
He believes Trump is going to meltdown and send the country into a tailspin of disaster.
Speaking with Axios, he said:
“We are now in the early episodes of ‘Chernobyl’ on HBO, where the reactor is melting down, and the apparatchiks are trying to figure out whether to cover it up or start the clean-up process,” Scaramucci, who was ousted from his job after 11 days, told the outlet.
“A couple more weeks like this and ‘country over party’ is going to require the Republicans to replace the top of the ticket in 2020.”
Scaramucci then issued a veiled threat to Trump and intimated that if Trump “doesn’t reform his behavior, it will not just be me, but many others will be considering helping to find a replacement in 2020.”
“Right now, it’s an unspeakable thing,” he continued. “But if he keeps it up, it will no longer be unspeakable. The minute they start speaking of it, it will circulate and be socialized. We can’t afford a full nuclear contamination site post 2020.”
These threats go against Trump and his Presidency.
And while Scaramucci is putting Trump on notice, the former insider doesn’t realize the GOP doesn’t have a suitable candidate to replace Trump. At the current time, there’s only one Republican who’s thinking about running against Trump. That’s former Mass. governor William Weld.
Other than that, the GOP has no one. And at this stage of the game, in the second half of 2019, there’s no way the GOP could cause another, more suitable candidate to materialize.
The fact of the matter is the vast majority of conservatives and independents think Trump is doing a splendid job as President. They see how the left is ganging up on him and trying their best to use lies and fabrications to take him down, and it encourages their support for him.
If the Republicans were to try and oust Trump, it would cause a tide of furious backlash.
They’d never recover from it, and it could end the GOP as we know it (and not just cost them the election in 2020).
Scaramucci has a right to his opinion, but betraying his former boss like that says more about him than it does about Trump.
