Turns out that while Trump is flexing his political muscles promising his adoring fans that he will crush any future Democratic opponent, efforts are underway within his own GOP to primary him in 2020. According to a CNBC article, conservative columnist and prominent NeverTrumper Bill Kristol is apparently actively recruiting Republicans to primary Trump in 2020, a move that is certain to enrage the criticism averse Trump. He has apparently talked to Gov John Kasich(Ohio), Sen Ben Sassse(Neb) and Sen Jeff Flake(AZ) about a possible 2020 Trump primary challenge.
The NeverTrumpers have largely remained silent during Trump’s presidency but now with all the troubles, legal and otherwise, engulfing the Trump administration, they are starting to voice their opposition to his presidency again. This could prove highly problematic to the GOP establishment because Trump will certainly take opposition from within as “disloyal” rebellion and wage a fierce war against his critics.
Yours Truly, a political sage at this juncture has long predicted a GOP split before 2020 and this llatest development has all the markings of one.

My prediction however has been that it is Romney who will primary Trump and TrumpRussia will be central to his challenge
I’ve long predicted.@GOP is HEADED FOR A BITTER SPLIT before 2020. I’d even go out on a limb and say the party will split into the #Trump/#Bannon faction & Romney/Establishment faction. #Trumprussia will be a catalyst for the split#TheResistance #CNN #MSNBC #FoxNews #BBCNews

It will be interesting to see how the GOP civil war plays out as we approach 2020. Bottom line when it does finally happen just remind the cable TV pundits that grassroots @Emolclause called it a long time ago. Remember folks, it is Mitt Romney who will give Trump a run for his money, leading to the GOP split.
For those of you very happy with @Emolclause’s activism don’t shy away from the “tip jar” below on your way out
