NeverTrumpers Gearing Up for 2020 Primary Challenge Against the President

Under any scenario short of the indictment and impeachment of President Donald Trump, we see no viable path whatsoever for any Republican who might like to challenge him in the 2020 primaries. And since we see no evidence that Trump is under any particular danger of being indicted (and virtually no danger of being thrown out of office), it means that any Republican planning to run against him is doing so for reasons of vanity, if not for the explicit benefit of the Democratic Party. Make no mistake – this suicide mission does not make you a man of honor or some kind of principled soldier of conservatism. It makes you a traitor to the cause.

But then, when you realize who is behind the early efforts to defeat Trump in 2020, you’ll hardly be surprised.

From CNBC:

One of President Donald Trump’s most vocal opponents is creating a political war machine to take on the commander in chief when it comes time for him to run for re-election in 2020.

Bill Kristol, who served in the administrations of Republican presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, says his nonprofit organization Defending Democracy Together is seeking a GOP candidate to run against Trump in 2020.

“We are thinking of and doing preliminary work to prepare for a primary run against Trump,” Kristol said in an interview on Thursday. “People aren’t going to say they will run against Trump unless they have the infrastructure but I’ve been trying to persuade people that it may not be that difficult,” he added.

Kristol, a director of Defending Democracy Together, explained that he’s organized a coalition of activists who are polling voters and meeting with focus groups in swing states such as New Hampshire.

He’s also been engaging with three potential Republican primary candidates who have been outspoken critics of the president: Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska, outgoing Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Other possible nominees on Kristol’s radar are Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker and Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan.

As we can see, the NeverTrump movement is alive and…um, maybe not well, but breathing at the very least. And they apparently have some money to burn on an arrogant venture that will only make it that much harder for Trump to triumph over the Democrats in the fall of 2020. But then, the people named in the story above had no problem trying to hand victory to Hillary Clinton in 2016, so it should come as no surprise. How you can disavow everything President Trump has accomplished over the last two years and still call yourself a conservative is beyond our comprehension. But hey, if “politeness” is more important to you than results, have at it…

  1. The war is not between the “R’s” and the “D’s” but between the DC Political Class and the US Business Class (those who know how to run a successful business).

  2. Bill Kristol is a sore loser and is Conservative in his own mind! He should have the cojones to run so that he can be put in his rightful place!

  3. Kristol is a swamp creature as is the Democrats and RINO’s. We the people are the are the only ones that can fix that. Election time is how term limits are imposed.

  4. No matter the chatter and innuendos. Trump will prevail in2020. He does need a change in attitude and drop some of his political machoism.

  5. Kristol is proving to be a very stupid man. Everyone one of his potential candidates is a proven looser who would not get even 25% of the GOP primary votes.

  6. I never cared much for Bill Kristol when he showed up on Fox as a conservative. I guess he is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. It is going to end badly for the Never Trumpers as, we the people, have had enough of the politicians who lie to us all the time. Trump has brought this country back again after Obama tried to destroy it. People have jobs again and more money in their pockets. They can buy houses and cars and get some interest on their cash. We need to check this illegal immigration. That is the greatest danger to us. If Congress would get out of Trump’s way, we would have a wall built and more border patrol agents.

  7. If I were these folks I wouldn’t waste my money. After the Republicans beat back the challenge of Democrats in November these folks are going to be hard pressed to mount any internal party resistence. All real Trump supporters need to be certain to vote in November and don’t rely on others to do it for you. We need every vote to make sure these Democratic Socialists don’t ever get control of this Country again.

  8. When someone gives you more in two years then have been done I the last couple of decades, you do not kick them where I hurts.. VOTE FOR AMERICA ON NOVEMBER 6.

  9. it’s Trump 2020 no one will beat him they paid lots on Hillary and look where that got them. Go vote Nov 6th for Republicans only. Straight ticket for them we need to keep house and senate or lose it all.
    I am also rooting for Kavanaugh to get voted in real soon. Charges are a lie.
