Republicans are worried that they will have to forfeit the White House in the upcoming election and they are speaking out about it.
“If we screw all this up, you better believe the American people could elect President Elizabeth Warren,” Republican Senator Ted Cruz reportedly said this week.
It seems that Cruz does not have faith in Donald Trump and is questioning Trump’s ability to unite Republicans.
Senator Ted Cruz is already worried about the GOP’s chances of keeping the White House in 2020, and rightfully so.
In a panel discussion today, Cruz warned that Democrats, led by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, could retake the White House in 2020 if Donald Trump and Republicans fail to overcome party divides that threaten their ability to govern.
… He also told assembled media that friction between the Trump White House and Congress is “profoundly damaging our prospects of success.”
Cruz told reporters that he thinks Warren is the Democrats’ most likely choice to challenge Trump in 2020, saying he thinks it is “likely” that she decides to run.
Cruz is not keeping his doubts to himself. He clearly thinks that Mr. Trump will not be able to garner enough support to be reelected come the 2020 elections.
It is no surprise that Trump adamantly disagrees with Cruz. Trump believes that he would beat Warren if she were to run against him, but this is just another one of Trump’s claims that he cannot back up with evidence.

Americans are scratching their heads after President Donald Trump made a puzzling prediction about the 2020 presidential election.
A long list of possible Democratic challengers has emerged and Senator Elizabeth Warren is seen as one of the strongest competitors. Many analysts suspect Warren would have the credibility and experience to lead a massive comeback against Trump and the Republicans during the 2020 presidential election.
But Trump apparently disagrees – he told a reporter over the weekend that Warren would be easy to beat.
“I think she’d lose so badly,” Trump said during an interview on Fox News’ “Watters’ World.”
Trump claimed Warren, a top surrogate for 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, “was getting up with that craziness and that anger” in speeches on the campaign trail.
Considering Trump’s awful approval numbers, it seems unlikely that he’ll be able to beat anyone the Democrats put forth during the next presidential election.
Trump’s low approval ratings are good news for Democrats!
