Kristol: Trump ‘Is Going to Destroy the Republican Party’

‘President Trump is already behind for 2020’


KRISTOL: "I mean I think Trump will destroy the Republican Party because the base will be there, I guess, to some degree. The base is there a lot now because the economy is good and there’s been no foreign policy disaster. The base will erode some as the business cycle changes and trump’s mistakes they start to pay a price for them, I think. President Trump is already behind for 2020. A lot of the base will stay I guess for quite a while. He’s the party’s base is shrinking. Young people are not, there god knows. They are not going to be there for trump. So they’ve signed on to a losing, you know, proposition but hanging on for dear life. That’s for sure."
