Trump headed to historic political defeat in 2020 that likely will take down Republican Senate with him, says David Frum


Frum, who is now a senior editor at The Atlantic, predicted on Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber” that Trump is headed for a “historic political defeat” in the 2020 election.

He further warned that the Trump White House’s botched response to the public health crisis, which for weeks saw the president downplaying the threat of the contagion, in lockstep with multiple GOP lawmakers, would “likely take the Republican Senate down with him.”

Frum called on the scientists and public health officials on the White House coronavirus task force to do more to stop Trump “from doing harm” by spreading falsehoods and misinformation during the daily updates.
