Does President Donald Trump still have a path to victory in the 2020 election?
Best-selling author Bill O’Reilly says the odds are slim; however, it’s not in the best interest of the American people for Trump to concede quite yet.
“I don’t think that the President should concede,” O’Reilly told the Hammer and Nigel Show Tuesday. “I think he should tell the American people, ‘I know I am probably not going to be the President after January, but I believe that the election was fraudulent in some places and it’s my job to find that out for you so that it doesn’t happen again.'”
The long-time host of #1 rated “O’Reilly Factor” on Fox News said it’s unlikely that the Supreme Court would put a stay in place on the election without an abundance of evidence indicating there were multiple incidents of voter fraud.
“I don’t believe the Supreme Court is going to do that because if they did, it’s inevitable that it would lead to violence,” O’Reilly said. “What you see in Portland, Seattle, Kenosha, and Minneapolis would happen everywhere and the Supreme Court knows that.”
“So you can’t just have the Supreme Court say, ‘We’re going to have a do-over,’ unless you have an overwhelming example of fraud that everyone can see and verify,” he added.
O’Reilly said he fully expects Donald Trump to run for President again in 2024.
O’Reilly: “I think Trump wants to be Grover Cleveland, who was the only President in history to win two terms, but non-consecutively. I fully expect Donald Trump to remain a prominent voice in the Republican party over the next three years. He’s a dominant force and he got over 73 million votes, which is amazing. And in the meantime, you’re going to have Senator Mitch McConnell as the most powerful man in America because he’s the one who introduces bills. So Republicans are going to have a lot of voices and tools to manage the Biden administration and keep them in check.”
O’Reilly, who authored the best-selling “The United States of Trump: How The President Really Sees America,” told Hammer and Nigel that the President would have had an easier time winning a second term if he had “dialed back the aggression.”
“I think that President Trump gets angry and acts out, and sometimes that works,” said O’Reilly. “Things like Russian collusion, impeachment, and the corrupt press are worthy of showing anger because the American people recognize that those things are a bunch of garbage and they’re angry about it too. But sometimes you need to pull it back.”
O’Reilly continued: “I suggested to Trump in the last week-and-a-half of his campaign he should have cut a sixty-second TV spot saying, ‘Look, I know some of you don’t like me. I know I go overboard sometimes. But, I’m really going to help you if you re-elect me, and my track record proves that.’ He could have done that, but he chose not to.”
Pivoting to the crucial runoff elections set to take place in Georgia in January, O’Reilly said Republicans are likely to secure both seats and maintain their majority in the Senate.
“If you look at the voting patterns in Georgia, the two Republicans should win. And I suggest to Donald Trump that he should hold rallies in Georgia for those two Republican candidates to help shore up the base even more,” O’Reilly said.
