Fox News contributor: 'Most likely' outcome is Trump doesn't run in 2020

Washington Examiner 1 month ago

NASHVILLE, Tennessee — Fox News contributor Christopher Hahn predicted that President Trump will not run for reelection in 2020.

Hahn, a lawyer who is one of the network's most frequent liberal guests, told the Washington Examiner on Saturday that he believes the "most likely" outcome is that the Senate will advise Trump not to run for reelection based on accusations of quid pro quo. Hahn suggested that in Trump's absence, the 2020 Republican ticket will be led by either Vice President Mike Pence or former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.

He predicted the current impeachment will lead to the president's downfall and specifically said that by March 15, the country will know whether Trump plans on seeking a second term. Hahn added that the testimony of former national security adviser John Bolton, which is still not a certainty, would be the final nail in the coffin for this administration.

"I wouldn’t want [Bolton] to hold a grudge against me," Hahn said, noting Bolton's contentious exit from the White House. "He’s annoyed the president didn't take his foreign policy advice.” Hahn then added that Trump's former adviser could be "a hand grenade" to the president, a play on the fact that Bolton called Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, who is at the center of the impeachment inquiry, "a hand grenade who’s going to blow everybody up."

Hahn also said he hopes Trump doesn't face criminal prosecution once he is removed from office, and added that in the event a Democrat wins in 2020, he or she "will have to pardon" the president.

“When push comes to shove, there are still going to be 40% of Americans that love that guy,” he said. “The amount of damage a trial of a president would to the United States would be irreparable.”
