Romney: Trump will be reelected in 2020

Romney: Trump will be reelected in 2020
By ALEX ISENSTADT 06/07/2018 10:48 PM EDT

DEER VALLEY, UTAH — Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney bluntly predicted here on Thursday evening that President Donald Trump would win reelection in 2020.

Addressing a group of major GOP donors, Romney — who bitterly collided with Trump during the 2016 campaign and implored his party to nominate someone else — also said Trump would easily capture the Republican Party’s 2020 nomination.

He said Trump’s political fortunes would be bolstered by a pair of factors: an improving economy and the likelihood that Democrats would choose an outside-the-mainstream candidate.

“I think President Trump will be re-nominated by my party easily, and I think he’ll be reelected solidly,” Romney said.

“I think that not just because of the strong economy and because people are increasingly seeing rising wages, but I think it’s also true because I think our Democrat friends are likely to nominate someone who is really out of the mainstream of American thought and will make it easier for a president who is presiding over a growing economy,” he added.

Since launching his Utah Senate candidacy earlier this year, Romney has praised some of Trump’s early actions as president while saying he disagrees with the president’s bombastic style.

During a recent interview with NBC News, Romney, a former Massachusetts governor and the GOP’s 2012 nominee, said he wouldn’t “point to the president as a role model for my grandkids on the basis of his personal style. He has departed in some cases from the truth, and has attacked in a way that I think is not entirely appropriate.”

After the 2016 race, the relationship between Trump and Romney warmed somewhat, with the president-elect briefly considering Romney to serve as his secretary of state before ultimately picking ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson. Still, there were signs of strain. Earlier this year, Trump waged an unsuccessful bid to persuade longtime Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch to seek reelection and block Romney.

After Hatch announced that he wouldn’t seek reelection, the president endorsed Romney for the seat.

The remarks came on the opening night of the E2 Summit, an annual Romney-hosted event that draws influential political leaders and donors. This year’s event is expected to draw a number of bold-faced names, including former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, investor Stephen Schwarzman, and House Speaker Paul Ryan, who was Romney’s vice-presidential nominee.

Actor and comedian Seth Rogen is expected to speak on brain health.

Romney also offered a bullish assessment of the GOP’s 2018 midterm prospects, arguing that the party would retain control of both chambers of Congress.

“I think that growth and the higher incomes people are seeing means that Republicans will do just fine in November,” he said. “I think we will hold the House, I think we’ll hold the Senate. I know a lot of pundits don’t believe that. I think we will.”

Romney is heavily favored to capture the Utah Senate seat. He faces a June 26 runoff for the GOP nomination against Dan Kennedy, a conservative state representative.

Every day the likelihood of reelection is stronger only Donald himself will hold the key to winning bigly or being whipped. If he can focus and choose his words and his battles better its a lead pipe cinch.

How do you know he's not focused? Because of what the MSM is telling you?

As for choosing his words and battles better he's doing the same thing now he did when he first ran when he still won. What does that say? Seems to me it says you're wrong. Let Trump be Trump because at his age he's not going to change, just like you.

A little logic goes a long way.

Failed miserably on immigration, and that's why he will not be re-elected.

That's the top issue for Republicans per polls anyway. Even Lou Dobbs cited the recent surges on the border again—up over 400 %. The woman from the Center for Immigration Studies ascribed the cause to the recent talk in the House for another general amnesty encouraging the new surge. Ryan and Establishment Chamber of Commerce Republicans are pushing this general amnesty and not just for DACA. Congress makes the laws, not the President who does not craft legislation under our Constitution.

Then there's the open-borders Kochs funding BIG money for the mid-terms as well. It's going to take a lot more than one man to reform our immigration, and even our asylum laws to fix the situation.

In the meantime, people need to call their reps against this amnesty push ( Ryan won't discuss details in public but is working behind closed doors for this sell-out deal). Threaten to primary your rep if he's on board. They need to know it will be their undoing. Ryan doesn't care 'cuz he's leaving, as are many other Republicans. More Republicans than Democrats iirc. Have to wonder why.

I'm tired of "calling reps". It doesn't work.

It's time to just let the Dems have full control. It makes no difference, other than we can prevent tax cuts for the rich and endless Pentagon toys. Most Americans are better off under Democrats anyway.

I predict that if he wants to run for reelection, once he gets on the campaign trail he will knock it out of the park. The only hidderence will be the media's slant, editing or not showing him on the trail.

Doing what he's done has gotten him the presidency, rising approval numbers, and a hostile RINO's expectation of likely victory in 2020.

But, yeah, he really needs to listen to a bunch of GOPe clowns on a message board in order to secure victory.

Mitch McConnell says he won't have a vote on an immigration bill unless it has Trump's backing, so the only reason to worry about what's going on in the House is if you're worried Trump will embrace it.

Nobody will show up to his rallies, because the people who used to were ignored by his policies. The people he did help, rich donors and military contractors, aren't very numerous and they sures hell don't go to rallies

Translation: Trump's campaign treasury is going to be exactly $100 lighter next go around.

I suspect he should be more worried about his lighter vote totals.


I still don't think he runs in 2020, which is a very rare prediction.
