Trump shouldn’t worry about Joe Walsh’s 2020 bid: Dan Palmer


SIDE. THANKS MARK. LELAND: HERE TO TALK ABOUT THE ENTERTAINMENT, GOP DAN PALMER GOOD TO SEE YOU. PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS 90 PLUS PERCENT APPROVAL, I FIND HIS ONLY PLACE APPROVAL NUMBERS HAVE ACTUALLY GROWN SINCE INAUGURATION. DO YOU THINK HE SHOULD BE WORRIED?>> I DON’T THINK SO. I THINK TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT YOU’VE GOT TO HAVE NAME ID, BE ABLE TO RAISE MONEY, AND YOU HAVE TO HAVE A COMPELLING MESSAGE. I MEAN, FRANKLY, JOE WALSH ISN’T EVEN THE BEST KNOWN JOE WALSH. IT COULD BE THE GUITAR PLAYER FOR THE EAGLES RIGHT?>> POINT TAKEN THIS IS HOW MR. WALSH IS FRAMING HIS CURRENT RUN. TAKE A LISTEN.>> MOST OF MY FORMER COLLEAGUES BELIEVE. THEY THINK TRUMP IS GOING TO LOSE IN NOVEMBER AND THEY WANT HIM TO LOSE IN NOVEMBER, AND THEN THEY THINK THEY’RE DONE WITH HIM AND EVERYTHING CAN GO BACK TO NORMAL. LELAND: YOU MADE AN INTERESTING POINT HERE. ONE ALSO COULD REMEMBER SOME OF YOURS AND MY CONVERSATION CIRCA 2015 WHEN DONALD TRUMP GOT INTO THE RACE AND YOU’RE SUPPORTING TED CRUZ AND YOU’RE SAYING THIS IS A CELEBRITY, THE GUY IS NOW RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. IS THERE A RISK OF DISMISSING WALSH TOO EASILY AS SO MANY DISMISSED TRUMP?>> I DON’T THINK SO. THE PRESIDENT WHEN HE WAS A CANDIDATE FLANKED CRUZ TO THE RIGHT AND THE DIVIDING LINE IN THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARY 2016 WAS THE IMMIGRATION ISSUE, AND HE OWNED THAT ISSUE. LELAND: HE PUSHES EVERYBODY TO THE RIGHT.>> EXACTLY SO IN THIS CASE THERE IS ALWAYS A NEVER-TRUMP CONSTITUENCY. IT’S DIMINISHED BUT IT HASN’T GONE AWAY AND I THINK THEY’RE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO GO BEHIND WHETHER IT’S GOING UP TO NEW HAMPSHIRE, WHETHER IT’S JOE WALSH BUT THE JUSTIFICATION FOR HIS CAMPAIGN THAT HE HAD SOME POSITIVE FEEDBACK ON THE INTERNET, I MEAN, HONESTLY IF I WORE A SQUIRREL PUPPET ON MY NOSE, I COULD GET SOME POSITIVE FEEDBACK ON THE INTERNET. LELAND: THIS TIME YOU’RE ON OUR SHOW WE’D LIKE YOU TO TRY THAT AND SEE HOW MUCH POSITIVE FEEDBACK THERE IS. I THINK YOUR WIFE MIGHT HAVE A THING OR TWO TO SAY, BUT PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT WHETHER THE MEDIA LOVES THE CHALLENGE FROM EITHER SIDE. THE LAST THREE TIMES AN INCUMBENT REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT WAS CHALLENGED BY A PRIMARY CHALLENGER FROM THEIR OWN PARTY THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED. REAGAN CHALLENGES FORD, FORD LOSES. KENNEDY CHALLENGES CARTER, CARTER LOSES, BUCHANAN CHALLENGE S H. W. BUSH AND H. W. BUSH LOSES. SHOULD REPUBLICANS WORRY THAT WALSH ARE GOING TO BE SPOILERS?>> THE COMMON THREAD IN THOSE THREE LOSSES WAS A LOUSY ECONOMY AND AT PRESENT WE HAVE A PRETTY ROBUST ECONOMY. THE LEFT IS TALKING ABOUT RUSSIA AND RACISM AND NOW RECESSION. THEY ARE LOOKING FOR SOME KIND OF A HOLD TO TRY TO ATTACK TRUMP AS LONG AS THIS ECONOMY IS STRONG THEY HAVE A TOUGH TIME. LELAND: WE HAD A DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSMAN ON EARLIER WHO ADMITTED THE ECONOMY WAS PRETTY STRONG AND KEPT TALKING ABOUT RECESSIONS ON THE HORIZON. IT’S COMING IT’S COMING. DOES THIS PUT THE PRESIDENT IN A DIFFICULT POSITION TO NEGOTIATE WITH CHINA, BECAUSE IF HE DOESN’T GET A DEAL WITH CHINA THERE’S A GOOD CHANCE WE COULD BE IN A MUCH WORSE SPOT A YEAR FROM NOW THAN WE ARE RIGHT NOW. ACTUALLY MOST LIKELY WE WILL BE. THAT GIVES CHINA THE UPPER HAND. THEY KNOW ABOUT THE ELECTION. PRESIDENT XI DOESN’T.>> I’M GLAD YOU RAISED THIS. I THINK THE REAL ISSUE WITH CHINA HAS BEEN FRAMED INCORRECTLY. THIS IS NOT STRICTLY AN ECONOMIC ISSUE. THIS IS A NATIONAL SECURITY ISSUE AS LONG AS THEY APPROPRIATING INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AS LONG AS THEY ARE USING CURRENCY MANIPULATION, A SYMMETRIC ACCESS TO MARKETS. THEY ARE PUTTING THEMSELVES IN A POSITION WHERE THEY CAN CHALLENGE FOR WORLD DOMINANCE. NOW THE UNITED STATES IS A SINGLE PREEMINENT WORLD POWER. IF CHINA’S ALLOWED TO CONTINUE THESE PRACTICES, THEY COULD FIND THEMSELVES RIVALLING THE U.S. FOR DOMINANCE. YOU ALREADY SEE THEM BUILDING ISLANDS IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEA. LELAND: AND MILITARY BASES.>> THEY ARE A RIVAL AND COULD RISE TO BECOMING AN ENEMY AND THE MOST IMPORTANT THING WITH THE CHINA TRADE DEAL IS WE HAVE TO HOB EL THEIR PROGRESS. LELAND: STEVEN MILLER NOW START ING TO MOVE TO THAT POINT TALKING ABOUT MOVING AWAY FROM CHINA’S PAYING FOR IT TO THE NATIONAL SECURITY ISSUE DAN ALWAYS GOOD TO SEE YOU NEXT TIME
