President Donald Trump has reportedly been taking offense to the idea that some Republicans might opportunistically run against him in 2020, and also that some Republicans think he will choose not to run again in 2020 anyway.
Among others, Senators Ben Sasse and Jeff Flake have inspired speculation that they might run against Trump in 2020.
White House officials have been adamant that Mr. Trump is very much going to run for reelection, but his popularity has plummeted since taking office, and every week seems to bring a year’s worth of political scandals and controversies. The fact that he’s also a shitty person is becoming more and more of an accepted fact, particularly following his pension-screw-over of Andrew McCabe and unraveling adult film star scandals.
However, if Mr. Trump is actually, really going to run again in 2020, he is apparently bad at reading the American room. He is quite literally the least popular president in recorded history. He has also offended every demographic of Americans except white male nazis, so go figure. It’s also fairly obvious that Trump hates being president and didn’t realize he’d have so much reading about subjects other than himself to do.
Mr. President, consider reconsidering your reelection.
