TRUMP: GOP Could Lose the Senate Because of RINOs Who Don’t Support Me

'You have a few people that want to be cute, and I think they’re going to lose their elections...'

President Trump predicted on Thursday that Senate Republicans who have not supported him or his agenda will lose their reelection bids in November.

Trump said he is confident that he will win reelection and that Republicans will retake the House.

But he admitted he isn’t as confident about the GOP’s chances in the Senate, and he said the NeverTrump senators who haven’t supported his administration are to blame.

“I believe we’re going to take back the House because Nancy Pelosi is stone-cold crazy. And I think we’re going to take the House and that’s upon — you know, I don’t make a statement like that very easily. But we’re going to take — otherwise, I’ll look very bad — but we’re going to take back the House,” Trump told Fox Business.

“We’re going to hold the presidency, and we’re fighting very hard in the Senate. I’ll be honest, the Senate is tough. We have a couple of people that aren’t as supportive of Trump as they should be, and those people are going to lose their elections. If they don’t support Trump, they lose their elections. It’s a simple element,” he continued.

Pointing to the recent Senate primary in Tennessee, Trump noted that the candidate he endorsed, Bill Hagerty, won his primary race.

“You have a few people that want to be cute, and I think they’re going to lose their elections, and that’s a problem for the Senate,” Trump said.

Recent polls prove Trump may be right.

In Maine, for example, Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, who has been frequently critical of the president, lags behind her Democratic opponent.

Sara Gideon, the state’s Democratic House speaker, is leading Collins by five points, according to a recent survey by the Bangor Daily News.

“She has both defied President Trump and backed him to the hilt,” Quinnipiac University polling analyst Tim Malloy explained. “[She] faces the political challenge of her life.”
