The most recent election showed that it’s never a good idea to bet against Donald Trump… but now a prominent conservative pundit has gone on the record with a dire warning about 2020.
Former Fox News star Bill O’Reilly recently explained that he believes the president might be limited to a single term, unless Trump can successfully tackle tax reform.
The well-known political commentator made his prediction on Friday while speaking on Glenn Beck’s radio program.
“I think the president has got to stop everything and just, you know, get into the tax cut business and get in fast,” O’Reilly said, according to TheBlaze.
O’Reilly also explained that Trump won’t “have any power” if he is unable to make progress on the tax issue, and worried that Republicans may be “turning on him.”
O’Reilly predicted that in a situation where Trump’s base turns on him, the president’s opponents might smell blood in the water and increase their attacks.
“Then the bad guys come in, and they’re going to throw everything at him. They’ll trump up stuff, they’ll make up stuff,” said O’Reilly. “[I]f he loses his support, and he hasn’t so far. His people are staying with him.”
Trump’s administration has teased a massive tax cut, but details of the president’s plan are still murky. Key points of the plan have been reported by Conservative Tribune and other outlets around the end of April, but no overt action has been taken since then.
Despite the lack of details, members of the administration have continued to hint at an upcoming push for tax reform.
Just days ago, Vice President Mike Pence announced that Trump “is going to work with this Congress this year, and we’re going pass the largest tax cut since the days of Ronald Reagan,” according to TheBlaze.
Trump may only be halfway through his first year in office, but eyes are already shifting to the 2018 and 2020 elections.
If Bill O’Reilly is correct, then Republicans will need to get the ball rolling on tax reform soon… or face serious problems at the polls.
