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.
Presidential Debate Commission Considers Major Rule Changes, Which May Include Muting Trump’s Microphone
They are desperate to protect Joe Biden.
President Donald Trump smacked down former vice president Joe Biden so brutally in last night’s presidential debate that the commission is considering changing the rules to give Biden a leg up in future debates.
The Commission on Presidential Debates made the announcement on Wednesday that they are going to be changing the rules of the game to hurt President Trump, which may even include the ability to mute Trump’s microphone.
They issued a statement saying that the debate “made clear that additional structure should be added to the format of the remaining debates to ensure a more orderly discussion of the issues.”
President Trump, who was frequently double-teamed by Biden and biased globalist moderator Chris Wallace, was forced to fight two men during the debate, but this wasn’t enough to give Biden the advantage. This is why they are considering changing the rules in the middle of the game.
Of course, the Commission on Presidential Debates praised Wallace for attacking Trump and propping up Biden throughout the debate.
“The CPD will be carefully considering the changes that it will adopt and will announce those measures shortly,” the organization said. “The Commission is grateful to Chris Wallace for the professionalism and skill he brought to last night’s debate and intends to ensure that additional tools to maintain order are in place for the remaining debates.”
They have assured CBS News that “we are going to be making changes” before the next debate. This is clearly designed to hurt Trump and bias the proceedings even further against the president.
Tim Murtaugh, communications director for the Trump campaign, is calling out the commission for their partisan and reprehensible behavior.
“They’re only doing this because their guy got pummeled last night,” he said in a statement. “President Trump was the dominant force and now Joe Biden is trying to work the refs. They shouldn’t be moving the goalposts and changing the rules in the middle of the game.”
Kate Bedingfield, deputy campaign manager for Biden’s campaign, is counting on the rules being changed to help Biden.
“He’ll be focused on answering questions from the voters there, under whatever set of rules the Commission develops to try to contain Donald Trump’s behavior,” Bedingfield said in a statement. “The president will have to choose between responding to voters about questions for which he has offered no answers in this campaign — or repeating last night’s unhinged meltdown.”
Big League Politics reported on how Wallace constantly interrupted President Trump and served as a surrogate for Biden while he was supposed to be the non-biased moderator:
The Donald Trump campaign has indicated that ‘neutral’ moderator Chris Wallace interrupted President Trump a whopping 76 times during Tuesday’s debate. Wallace, who is known for harboring liberal sympathies, was widely criticized by conservatives for his partiality in moderating the contest…
It appears that Biden actually spent more time talking during the debate than Trump did, despite Wallace consistently maintaining that Trump was breaking the rules.
Wallace continually invoked the rules that allot two minutes for each answer to each candidate, but declined to interrupt Biden when he violated them. He flouted neutrality most during the ‘open discussion’ segments, waiting for a moment when Biden appeared flustered or challenged by the President to change the subject.
Wallace conveniently changed the subject when Trump pressed Biden to identify any law enforcement union that endorsed him…
Wallace also provided the same convenient handicap when Biden described the terrorist group ANTIFA as an ‘idea.’…
Biden assailed Trump with a hail of personally charged insults, calling him a ‘clown,’ a ‘racist,’ a ‘fool,’ and a ‘puppy.’ Wallace did not object to any of the character attacks utilized by Biden…
At this point, if Biden refuses to a contest with a moderator unaffiliated with a mainstream corporate media outlet, just do the debates without a moderator. Have the two candidates speak in an open-ended fashion without the use of a convenient handicap to cut off any content that might prove harmful to the Democrat’s electoral prospects.
The electoral integrity for November’s vote is already severely jeopardized. President Trump might want to consider suspending the elections in order to protect the Republic from the anti-democratic coup that is in progress.
