Fox News host made a prediction about a Trump winning 2020 that turned heads in Washington, D.C.
Despite all of the craziness surrounding the pandemic, the economy, and the race riots, the dominant story in politics is Donald Trump’s re-election prospects.
Every story is viewed through how it affects the President’s chances of securing a second term.
And one Fox News host made a prediction about a Trump winning 2020 that turned heads in Washington, D.C.
Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace appeared on The View Tuesday, where liberal host Sunny Hostin asked Wallace if Donald Trump claiming to be the law and order President while attacking NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem was the right thing to do.
Wallace tried to keep the discussion in the realm of politics, but let his own liberal biases slip through by proclaiming last week a “very bad week” for Trump’s re-election chances.
“I’m not going to talk about it in terms of right or wrong. The president has his base. He has his beliefs. He’s entitled to them. Let me talk about it in terms of politics. I would say that the last week was a very bad week for the president in terms of politics, in terms of his potential re-election prospects,” Wallace began.
Wallace cited a slew of Deep State retired military officers speaking out against the President as adding to the sense that all of America was turning on the President.
“When you’re getting called out by the Episcopal Bishop of Washington and the Arch Bishop of the Catholic Church of Washington, when you’re getting called out by everybody from Jim Mattis, to former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Mike Mullen, and even your own current Secretary of Defense Mike Esper breaks with you, that’s not a good week,” Wallace continued.
Wallace brushed aside the news that the economy added a record 2.5 million jobs in May to continue the argument that the previous week – which saw riots break out across America – severely damaged the President’s chances for re-election.
“He had some good news on the economy. There’s a new poll in The Washington Post that indicates by a two to one margin people don’t think the President has handled the last week properly. His approval ratings have dropped. You can argue as to whether he’s right or wrong, but politically it’s been a bad week.”
