Now comes the curveball for 2020: Third party politicking.
It’s a scary thought, to be honest. We already have a democratic party who can’t whittle their race down to less than twenty candidates, preparing to scale the juggernaut that is Team Trump. If a free-thinking third party candidate were to emerge, you can bet that the entire ordeal would be thrown into a tizzy.
Now, with frequent Trump critic Justin Amash quitting the republican party, (after being the first GOP member to openly call for the impeachment of President Trump), there could be a very real possibility of a ménage à vote.
“In recent years, though, I’ve become disenchanted with party politics and frightened by what I see from it,” he said in the op-ed. “The two-party system has evolved into an existential threat to American principles and institutions.”
That ominous dig at the two-party system aside, the President tweeted his thoughts on the subject soon after Amash made headlines.
“Great news for the Republican Party as one of the dumbest & most disloyal men in Congress is ‘quitting’ the Party,” Trump tweeted. “No Collusion, No Obstruction! Knew he couldn’t get the nomination to run again in the Great State of Michigan. Already being challenged for his seat. A total loser!”
Given the political mayhem that we have been witnessing in the United States as of late, it wouldn’t likely surprise anyone to see a third party make a run toward the Oval Office in 2020.
It will, however, enrage just about everyone in both parties.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
