Editor-at-large of The Weekly Standard, Bill Kristol, predicts Democrats will win back both houses of Congress in November, causing Republicans to turn against President Donald Trump.
“I think the chances of Democrats winning both houses are pretty good now,” Kristol said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “It’s obviously important if Democrats win the House and/or the Senate and changes the dynamics for the next two years. But the day after election day for Republicans, something you and I have talked about a lot, Joe, is very important.”
“That’s the moment where Republicans stop justifying the vote in 2016 for Donald Trump,” he continued. “They stop justifying working with Trump over the last couple of years. Gorsuch, the tax cuts, whatever. And they have to confront the issue, do you want to renominate Donald Trump for four more years? Are you confident enough that this is going well, that you’re going to sign on for another term.”
Kristol said the day after election day this November will be a wake up call to voters and GOP lawmakers alike, he then praised himself for being a catalyst of negative feelings towards Trump.
“Can’t do anything about the fact that he’s president. So maybe you have to work with him. That’s been the general Republican attitude,” he said. “I think the day after election day, things change more than people realize in terms of Republican psychology and dynamics.”
“They’ll need a little help from people like me,” Kristol laughed.
