Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney recently told GOP donors at an event that Trump will win reelection in 2020. This means Romney isn’t likely to challenge Trump for the Republican nomination that year, which is excellent news.
Romney: Trump will be reelected in 2020
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.
Give credit where it’s due. It probably wasn’t easy for Romney to say this.
