Mitt Romney Predicts Trump Will ‘Easily’ Win Again in 2020

Mitt Romney has predicted that Donald Trump will stroll to a second term in office in 2020. The GOP’s failed 2012 presidential nominee, who previously called Trump a “con man” and “a fake,” said he foresees six more years of Trump’s presidency, saying the president will “easily” win his party’s nomination in 2020 and “solidly” win a second term. “I think that not just because of the strong economy and the fact that people are going to see increasingly rising wages,” Romney said, “but I think it’s also true because I think our Democrat friends are likely to nominate someone who is really out of the mainstream of American thought and will make it easier for a president who’s presiding over a growing economy.” Romney delivered the remarks on the first day of a three-day, closed-door summit in Utah’s mountains as he welcomed high-profile business and political leaders—including House Speaker Paul Ryan and billionaire former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg—to the event.
