Herman Cain Makes Bold Prediction About 2020 Presidential Election – The GOP Isn’t Going to Like it

Businessman and former presidential candidate Herman Cain has made known his prediction regarding what will happen during the 2020 presidential election.
While many strategists and pollsters have been focused on trying to foresee if a Republican challenger will run against Trump in the primary, Cain said he doesn’t believe anyone will step forward.
“I don’t believe any of the GOP people are going to try to run against (Trump), to take him out, they’re just going to probably try to work against him, like many of them are doing right now,” Cain told Fox Business on Wednesday.
Despite Cain’s prediction, many analysts and commentators have weighed in to suggest various GOP candidates who may challenge the president. One of the names mentioned the most is that of Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who has made no secret of his distaste for Trump and his policies.
In August, pollster Tony Fabrizio conducted a poll pitting Trump against Kasich, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska and Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas in a hypothetical primary.
The poll found that Trump had 50 percent support within the GOP, while Cruz earned 14 percent of the hypothetical vote and Kasich sat at 10 percent. Sasse and Cotton each had 1 percent support.
Other Republicans have not quite ruled out running against Trump in a 2020 primary.
Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, who is not seeking re-election to the upper chamber in 2018, has been a vocal Trump critic. Still, he said last month that it is “way, way too early” for anyone to be considering a presidential run in 2020.
Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, who is also stepping down in 2018, told “Good Morning America” in October that he was focused on his short-term goals. Still, he didn’t say he wouldn’t run in 2020.
“You know, that’s a long time away. And we’ll deal with that when it comes to it,” said Flake.
For now, Cain’s prediction holds true, as no Republican has stepped forward to declare their candidacy.
Meanwhile, Trump has already qualified as an official candidate in 2020, despite some media speculation that he may not run at all.
Cain went on to explain that he expects those Republicans who don’t support Trump’s agenda have a reckoning coming.
His website, he noted, keeps a list of “RINOs,” or Republicans in name only, to share with the public.
“We are keeping track of the Republican RINOs on health care, the Republican RINOs on the tax bill, and we’re going to keep a rolling list of all of the Republicans in name only so we can share it with the public,” Cain said.
“Many of these Republicans, they believe that their constituency has short memories. Some of them do, but we don’t, and we’re going to make sure people know how, on these big issues, that the public cares about, many of them did not support the president,” Cain added.
