Fox News host Tucker Carlson issued a stern warning to President Donald Trump advisers and supporters who believe he has his 2020 presidential re-election campaign in the bag.
“A year from today, we’ll be hosting this show from the National Mall as the next president of the United States takes the oath of office,” Carlson said to start the opening monologue of his titular prime time program on Monday.
“Will that president be Donald Trump? As of tonight, Republicans in Washington feel confident it will be,” he added.
Carlson believes that Trump’s chances of victory depend entirely upon how he conducts his presidential re-election campaign.
“The official economic numbers are strong. The Democratic primaries are a freak show – elderly socialists accusing each other of thoughtcrimes. Republicans are starting to think victory is assured. That’s a mistake,” he continued. “America remains as divided as it was three years ago. No matter what happens, nobody’s going to win this election in a national landslide. Those don’t happen anymore. Trump could lose. Will he? That depends on what he runs on.”
President Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale has noted that Trump will be running his re-election campaign based on the strong national economy, not immigration or cultural issues:

Lou: "You didn't mention border security, you didn't mention immigration."
Parscale: "Well I think on immigration he's already in the winning column."

Carlson believes that this is the recipe for snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, considering negative public opinion regarding structural economic issues. He points to student loan debt as a massive problem that Republicans simply offer no solutions for, and this could open the door for socialist Bernie Sanders to steal independent voters from Trump.
“Bernie Sanders may get the Democratic nomination,” Carlson said. “If he does, every Republican in Washington will spend the next 10 months reminding you that socialism doesn’t work, and never has. They’ll be right, obviously,” Carlson explained.
“But if Sanders pledges to forgive student loans, he’ll still win many thousands of voters who went for Donald Trump last time. Debt is crushing an entire generation of Americans. Republicans need a plan to make it better, or they’ll be left behind,” he added.
Carlson notes that the public will consider the false promises of socialism if Republicans fail to offer solutions to the problems plaguing millions of Americans.
“They’re conservative in the most basic sense: They love their families above all,” the host explained. “They distrust radical theories of anything because they know that when the world turns upside down, ordinary people get hurt. They don’t want to burn it down. They just want things to get better. The candidate who promises to make them better – incrementally, but tangibly – will be inaugurated president a year from today.”
The entire rant can be seen here:
Right now, the Real Clear Politics polling average shows Sanders beating Trump by a narrow 48-45 margin. Sanders is surging in the Democratic polls, even pulling ahead of former Vice President Joe Biden, and may be considered the front-runner to take the nomination for the Democrats.

DESPERATION: Never Trumpers Float Romney/Bloomberg as ‘the Unity Ticket America Deserves’
How pathetic are these guys?
The “Never Trump” brain trust over at The Bulwark has unveiled their antidote to stop the President they hate so much in this year’s election: a “unity ticket” consisting of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) as a presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as his running mate.
Author Neal Simon made the argument that this potential third-party ticket would appeal to independents in an op/ed published on Monday.
“Senator Romney’s entrance into the presidential race wouldn’t just give the vital center of the electorate a home—it would stand a chance to break a system that is stacked against independents and third party candidates,” Simon argued.
He compared Romney’s potential to that of French President Emmanuel Macron, the reviled ruler who has populist Yellow Vest protesters rioting against his unpopular style of governance every weekend.
“And as Emmanuel Macron showed in France, standing up a new party and winning a presidential election in one motion is not impossible,” Simon wrote.
Simon posited that by putting Bloomberg on his ticket as Vice President, Romney could essentially buy the election, which is what Bloomberg is basically trying to do right now with his run for the Democratic presidential nomination.
“A Romney-Bloomberg ticket would be a first in modern American politics: A bipartisan unity ticket running under the banner of an independent third party,” he wrote.
Simon’s premise is predicated off of an assumption that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) will win the Democrat presidential nomination. He believes that populism taking over the Republican and Democrat parties would open the door for a centrist revolution that could be led by Romney and Bloomberg.
“It would give both disgruntled Republicans who feel their party has become lost in Trump’s personality cult and Democrats who feel their party is lurching too far left towards a socialist revolution a voice on the ballot that reflects a popular idea of how the country should be run,” he concluded.
Simon, who was a failed independent candidate in the state of Maryland for the U.S. Senate in 2018, recently published a book titled, “Contract to Unite America: Ten Reforms to Reclaim Our Republic.” He is using the words of George Washington in his manifesto to defeat the new age of populist politics and return to the days of old.
“Capitalizing on personal insight derived from Simon’s political campaign along with extensive research, Contract to Unite America provides specific, practical solutions for an improved government and a better tomorrow,” Simon’s book description reads.
Unfortunately for Simon and the “Bulwark” neocons, the public has had enough of status quo politicians and does not want to return to the George W. Bush era. The dream ticket of Romney/Bloomberg is not likely to come to fruition.
