MSNBC contributor Donny Deutsch said President Donald Trump could be re-elected in 2020 by a “landslide” following the morning’s employment news.
What are the details?
Deutsch, who appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” explained Friday that a Trump victory could be in the bag based on unemployment’s record 18-year low, as well as dealings with North Korea.
A Friday report revealed that the unemployment rate was at 3.9 percent, which is the lowest the U.S. level has been in 18 years. The economy also added 164,000 jobs in April.
During his “Morning Joe” appearance, Deutsch said, “3.9, jobs, if he does the North Korea thing, ISIS — this man, unless there’s some real serious stuff in these indictments is gonna get re-elected in a landslide.”
Steve Rattner, “Morning Joe’s” economic analyst, said that Deutsch’s comments weren’t off-base.
“Donny is right, it’s a good number,” he said. “I take Donny’s point, in the fall of 2020, if the economy looks like this, it will be very good for Donald Trump.”
