President Donald Trump has already been busy campaigning for the 2020 presidential race and is expected to run for re-election.

However, prominent Republican donor Anthony Scaramucci believes that the Republican Party may need to replace Trump with another candidate if the GOP wants to win the race.

Scaramucci told Axios, “We are now in the early episodes of ‘Chernobyl’ on HBO, where the reactor is melting down and the apparatchiks are trying to figure out whether to cover it up or start the clean-up process.”

Scaramucci further stated, “A couple more weeks like this and ‘country over party’ is going to require the Republicans to replace the top of the ticket in 2020.”

In case you don’t recall, Scaramucci served in Trump’s administration but lasted just 11 days before he was ousted.

He admits that for now, replacement is “unspeakable” but may soon become a serious option.

Scaramucci also said that President Trump’s visit to El Paso, Texas, which was the site of a recent tragedy that targeted Latinos, was a “catastrophe.”

President Donald Trump was quick to respond on Twitter:

Will President Trump be replaced?

It seems unfathomable — but recent polls suggest that both former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) would handily beat Trump in a head-to-head matchup.
