John Philips: We’ll Find Out What’s More Popular Trump or Trumpism in Alabama

‘A lot of people who got behind President Trump early on in the process are getting behind the candidate that is not the preferential candidate of the president’

EXCERPT:

PHILIPS: “Well, we’ll find out what’s more popular Trump or Trumpism. Because, a lot of the people that got behind President Trump early on in the process are getting behind the candidate that is not the preferential candidate of the president. And I talked to someone who is very close to the president, a political adviser, over the weekend who says — who told me that they looked at this race as a missed opportunity for President Trump, that they think that his hand of cards would be stronger in the Senate for votes like the health care vote, if he were to go in and take out one of Mitch McConnell’s preferred candidates then they would be more afraid of Trump."
