Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) responded to Trump’s claim that America will reelect him in 2020 by saying that’s not going to happen.
America can’t take four more years of Trump
Rep. Schiff responded to Trump on ABC’s This Week, “That’s not going to happen, and I don’t think this country could survive another four years of a president like this who gets up every day and tries to find new and different ways to divide us. He doesn’t seem to understand that a fundamental aspect of his job is to try to make us a more perfect union, but that’s not at all where he’s coming from, and he’s going to be defeated. He has to be defeated because I don’t know how much more our democratic institutions can take of this attack on the rule of law.”
House Intelligence Committee Chair Rep. Adam Schiff says Trump "has to be defeated" in 2020.

Adam Schiff was right
The political energy in this country is focused on defeating Donald Trump. Our body politic has institutionally reacted to Trump’s corruption like it is trying to reject a bad organ to save itself. Trump can bluster and claim that he is going to be reelected, but so far, the energy is not there. His crowds are straggling out of his rallies while he is still talking. Trump has done nothing to expand the electoral map, as swing states that he carried in 2016 are showing signs of slipping away from him in 2020.
His”great economy” hasn’t been good for working people. Healthcare is an issue that is on everyone’s minds, and the nation seems ready to move on from Trump and back to stability.
