TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – US President Donald Trump will quit the 2020 race and not seek re-election, according to a former top aide.
Anthony Scaramucci, the short-lived White House communications director, said the president will likely quit the race in March to avoid the humiliation of defeat.
“He’s gonna drop out of the race because it’s gonna become very clear. Okay, it’ll be March of 2020. He’ll likely drop out by March of 2020. It’s gonna become very clear that it’s impossible for him to win,” he said in an interview with Vanity Fair.
“He’s got the self-worth in terms of his self-esteem of a small pigeon. It’s a very small pigeon. And so you think this guy’s gonna look at those poll numbers and say — he’s not gonna be able to handle that humiliation.”
The battle of words between Scaramucci and Trump has escalated in recent weeks.
Last week, Trump took to Twitter, charging that Scaramucci was “totally incapable of handling” the role of White House communications chief.
A day later, Scaramucci said on CNN that Trump had “gone off the rails,” adding, the president was “sounding more and more nonsensical.”
Scaramucci compared the US president to a “demagogue” and insisted the Trump administration’s conservative policy agenda is not worth the damage the Republican has inflicted upon America’s democratic institutions.
