Fox News host opinion is that President Donald Trump “might drop out” of the 2020 presidential race. Fox News report speculated that Trump could exit the race “if his poll numbers don’t improve.”
Fox News Host Trace Gallagher risked his career at Fox News even though he was responding to a Fox News report that speculated and repeating the key question in the report. The Fox News host said
“President Trump’s poll numbers declining in recent weeks amid criticism of his administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic… which is leading some speculation that if his support keeps falling, the president might drop out of the race.”
The Gallagher went even further by actually saying to his guest former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu (R) that the “vast majority of Americans” are not happy with Trump’s handling of the pandemic…
“If the polling is off, it’s way off.”
Former N.H. Gov. Sununu is responding by saying…
“There’s no chance the president is going to drop out…So, put that to the side. But there is no question that the president would like to be in a better position in those polls than he is today.”
“The pandemic has been a problem…And I think the president and the administration and Republicans across the board running in November have to understand, they’re going to be judged in November, not on how the pandemic was handled from January until now. They’re going to be judged on how it’s handled between now and the election.”
Sununu went on to recommend that Trump…
“Gear his message for reality.”
“Stop saying the virus is going to go away.”
“Let people know that this is a real second wave, let them know there may be a third wave.”
This is precisely the reason President Trump has stated striking out at Fox News. He hates seeing the news and right-wing opinion network report the news instead of pushing his propaganda messaging. Trump could respond by demanding Trace Gallagher’s firing. Keep an eye on Trump’s Tweets.
