Certain figures within the Republican Party are still scheming behind closed doors to sabotage President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign.
Several Never-Trumpers have been waiting for the best time to strike, and former Attorney General Jess Sessions could be preparing to stab Trump in the back as revenge for the president firing him last year.
The latest “front man” for the Never-Trump movement is former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.
Scaramucci has been smearing and slandering Trump on just about every cable news shows he can get on.
But during an appearance this week on CNN’s “New Day,” Scaramucci detailed how he is working on to defeat Trump in the 2020 Republican primary.
Scaramucci told host Alisyn Camerota that a Trump challenger could skip the traditional early state caucuses and primaries in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada and instead target the larger, delegate-rich states later in the contest.
“The good news is you have until November, but you can really skip over the states of Iowa and New Hampshire and South Carolina and you can work on the bigger states. You can start winning delegates from some of the biggest states that are sour on the president,” Scaramucci stated.
Scaramucci then said he’s recruiting former Trump cabinet officials to speak out against the president.
“I’m in the process of putting together a team of people that feel the exact same way that I do. This is not a ‘Never Trump’ situation. This not just screeching rhetoric. This is — Okay, the guy is unstable,” Scaramucci said.
He added: “Everyone inside knows it, everyone outside knows it. Let’s see if we can find a viable alternative. Moreover, I have to get some former Cabinet officials in unity to speak up about it. They know it’s a crisis.”
This has led many to suggest he’s targeting Sessions, who has had a rocky relationship with Trump for over two years.
Trump and Sessions relationship began to turn sour when the former Alabama senator outrageously recused himself from overseeing the Russia investigation.
Sessions’ act of weakness led to the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel — and Trump has said he blames Sessions’ recusal for kicking off the two-year long Russia witch hunt.
During an interview in June, Trump said nominating Sessions to serve as the attorney general was the biggest mistake of his entire presidency.
During an interview on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” host Chuck Todd asked Trump: “If you would have one do-over as president, what would it be?”
Trump answered, “Well, it would be personnel.”
“I would say if I had one do-over, it would be, I would not have appointed Jeff Sessions to be attorney general. That would be my one,” Trump said.
Time will tell what happens next, but many are questioning whether Sessions would try to take down Trump as an act of revenge.
