Donald Trump’s re-election campaign just hit its biggest speed bump yet.
The President is facing what could be the biggest threat to a second term.
And Jeff Sessions could be about to cross one unthinkable line with this betrayal of Trump.
Disgraced former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci appeared once again on CNN to continue his feud with the President.
This time on “New Day,” Scaramucci told host Alisyn Camerota his plan to defeat the President in the GOP primaries.
Scaramucci claimed the anti-Trump challenger could skip Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina and make a play for the big states in order to deny the President the delegates necessary to secure the GOP nomination.
“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 explained.
Scaramucci added that he thought he could get former cabinet secretaries to join his effort.
“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. 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,” Scaramucci added.
Speculation immediately centered on former Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Trump soured on Sessions after Sessions caved in to pressure to recuse himself in the Russia investigation, resulting in the appointment of Robert Mueller.
Sessions was the first Senator to endorse Trump in 2016, so Sessions endorsing a Trump challenger would create a stir.
