Tucker: What if Trump doesn’t want to be re-elected?


>>Tucker: 2020 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN ALREADY UNDERWAY. DOZENS OF CANDIDATES IN THE RACE AND POSSIBLY DOZENS MORE TO COME. ON THE REPUBLICAN SIDE THERE IS JUST THE INCUMBENT PRESIDENT. EVERYONE ASSUMES HE WANTS TO BE REELECTED MOST PRESIDENTS DO. WHAT IF DONALD TRUMP HAD DECIDED HE HAS HAD ENOUGH? TOO MANY INVESTIGATIONS, TOO MUCH NASTINESS, TOO FEW UPSIDES. IT WOULDN’T BE A CRAZY CONCLUSION. HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO SPEND YOUR 70’S LOCKED INTO THE WHITE HOUSE? LET’S SAY TRUMP WANTS TO LOSE IN 2020 AND GET BACK TO HIS OLD LIFE? HOW WE DO THAT? LET’S SEE, HE MIGHT START BY PROPOSING HALF A BILLION DOLLARS IN MEDICARE CUTS. THAT’S SOMETHING THAT NOBODY OUTSIDE THE LIBERTARIAN SYMPOSIA CIRCUIT WANTS TO SEE. DO YOU THAT THEN HE WOULD SLASH FUNDING FOR THE EVERIFY PROGRAM ALLOW COMPANIES TO KEEP HIRING ILLEGAL LABOR IN VIOLATION OF A KEY CAMPAIGN PROMISE. AFTER THAT HE WOULD DENOUNCE BRINGING IN EVEN MORE LOW SKILLED WORKERS THAT WOULD PUSH DOWN THE WAGES OF THE PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR HIM. THE MOST VULNERABLE GROUP IN THE COUNTRY. FINALLY HE WOULD RELEASE A BUNCH OF DRUG DEALERS RIGHT BACK ON THE STREETS RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WORST DRUG EPIDEMIC IN HISTORY AND CONTINUE OUR POINTLESS MILITARY INTERVENTION IN SYRIA WHICH IN NO WAY BENEFITS THE UNITED STATES. IF THE PRESIDENT DID ALL OF THAT, THE MESSAGE WOULD BE VERY CLEAR, HE HAS NO IDEA WHAT HE RAN ON IN 2016, HE JUST WANTS OUT. WELL LET’S SAY VOTERS STILL DIDN’T GET THE MESSAGE. MAYBE THEY WERE TOO DISTRACTED BY THE RUSSIA HOAX TO NOTICE? AT THAT POINT YOU HAVE TO DO SOMETHING REALLY EXTREME TO GET THEIR ATTENTION, SOMETHING SO MINDLESS AND COUNTER PRODUCTIVE THERE IS LITERALLY NO WAY TO GET REELECTED AFTER DOING IT. YOU WOULD RAISE GAS TAXES. IN FACT THE ADMINISTRATION IS PROPOSING JUST THAT ACCORDING TO NEWS REPORTS THE WHITE HOUSE IS NEGOTIATING WITH DEMOCRATS TO HIKE TAXES ON GASOLINE IN ORDER TO FUND, QUOTE INFRASTRUCTURE. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE IDEAS THAT EVERYONE IN WASHINGTON LOVES. IT COSTS THEM NOTHING. THEY ARE TOO RICH TO CARE WHAT GAS COSTS AND BY THE WAY THEY DON’T DRIVE. IF YOU LIVE OUTSIDE THE COASTAL CITIES AND NOT RICH, HIGHER GAS PRICES ARE A DISASTER. THEY HURT YOU IMMEDIATELY. THAT’S ALWAYS TRUE ANYTHING THAT RAISES THE PRICE OF GASOLINE GREEN NEW DEAL OR RAISES THE PRICE OF GASOLINE THINK TANKS CRUSHES THE WEAKEST IN OUR SOCIETY. NORMAL PEOPLE HATE IT MANY OF THOSE PEOPLE VOTED FOR DONALD TRUMP THE FIRST TIME. IT’S NUTS. AND IT’S NOT LIKE THERE AREN’T OTHER SMARTER LESS REGRESSIVE OPTIONS IF YOU WANT TO RAISE MONEY THERE ARE MANY OF THEM. ROLL BACK SOME OF THOSE 2017 TAX CUTS WHICH WENT OVERWHELMINGLY TO HIGH EARNERS AND BIG COMPANIES. BILLIONS OF REMITTANCE IN THE UNITED STATES TO THE REST OF THE WORLD. REMEMBER THAT IDEA? REDUCE CARRIED INTEREST LIKE THE INCOME IT SO OBVIOUSLY IS WE SHOULD DO THAT ANYWAY JUST ON PRINCIPLE. EVEN TAX CAPITAL GAINS LIKE WE TAX SALARIES. MITT ROMNEY MIGHT FINALLY PATE SAME RATE AS YOUR DENTIST AND THAT WOULD BE SATISFYING. AND THEN WE COULD GET CREATIVE. HOW ABOUT ABOUT 80% TAX ON ALL LOBBYING PRODUCED BY FORMER MEMBERS OF CONGRESS. THAT’S A GOOD ONE. HOW ABOUT AN IPHONE TAX? OR HOW ABOUT A TOUGH NEW TAX ON A TRILLION-DOLLAR BASED INTERNET DEALER WHOSE BASE PUBLIC ROADS TO DELIVER THEIR PACKAGES? COMPANIES LIKE THAT HAVE PUT AN AWFUL LOT OF AMERICAN BUSINESSES OUT OF WORK. THEY CLOG OUR ROADS. WHY AREN’T THEY PAYING FOR INFRASTRUCTURE? WE COULD GO ON PLENTY OF OBVIOUS IDEAS OUT THERE. HIKING TAXES ON WORKING CLASS RURAL PEOPLE IS NOT ON THE LIST. UNLESS YOU SECRETLY WANT TO
