MSNBC contributor Donny Deutsch made the shocking statement on the far-left news network’s Morning Joe, claiming that Trump could do unexpectedly well, after a string of victories.
Referencing Monday’s announcement that unemployment was at its lowest rate in nearly 20 years, Deutsch said, “3.9 [percent unemployment], if he does the North Korea thing, ISIS. This man, unless there’s some real serious stuff in these indictments is gonna get reelected in a landslide.”
Morning Joe co-anchor Sara Eisen tacitly agreed–saying that the “big headline 3.9 percent” unemployment was a “wow number” for the President.
Eisen also admitted that the stock market “loves this number.”
Morning Joe’s economist analyst, Steve Rattner, was more measured in his support… but agreed that, if Trump’s economy continues to boom, he could be a shoe-in in 2020.
“I take Donny’s point, in the fall of 2020, if the economy looks like this, it will be very good for Donald Trump,” Rattner said.
Rattner also cautioned that Trump “has a long way to go from here to there without some kind of economic bump in the road.”
