MSNBC's Donny Deutsch: Trump Would 'Call the Military' If He Loses in 2020
Trish Regan played a clip of MSNBC pundit Donny Deutsch positing that "in the sad event" President Trump runs for reelection, he would lose the race but likely "call the military" and refuse to leave office.
Deutsch, a longtime New York City ad executive, said he believes Trump will be "disqualified" before the election heats up.
If Trump ends up running and losing to the Democrat candidate, "it will be stunning what we would see. He would be a president going, I’m not leaving. I’m not leaving. Call the military," he said.
"We have to look at this man. He really would do that. He would say, ‘No, no, no. I’m still here.’" Deutsch continued. "He would turn to 50 million Americans and say I’m still your president and this is my new government."
Regan and Media Research Center director Tim Graham discussed Deutsch's statements relative to the debate over the outstanding results from the 2018 elections.
NewsBusters, a partner website of Graham's MRC, wrote that Deutsch was effectively suggesting that Trump would attempt a coup to hold power.
"I kind of half-thought he was joking," Regan said.
Graham said Deutsch's comments were "cuckoo."
