As mass protests over police brutality take place across the nation, COVID-19 killing people, and the economy falling apart, local Republican officials are boasting that the “more bad things happen, the more they support Trump.” In fact, even as the president’s approval rating keeps plummeting, his supporters sound surprisingly confident about November’s election, according to Politico.

“The more bad things happen in the country, it just solidifies support for Trump,” said Phillip Stephens, GOP chairman in Robeson County, N.C. “We’re calling him ‘Teflon Trump.’ Nothing’s going to stick, because if anything, it’s getting more exciting than it was in 2016.”
