To say that President Donald Trump’s re-election chances are diminishing is an understatement. In fact, Trump is trailing Democratic rival Joe Biden in every national poll in recent days. To make matters worse, the Trump campaign could face even more damage in the coming months, according got a new report published by Politico.
The news outlet conducted interviews with several historians and journalists who identified potential Trump “bombshells” that could send his hopes of winning the 2020 race spiraling further down the drain.
Among the potential bombshells are revelations about the president’s business dealings, which he has managed to keep completely opaque after he broke his campaign promise to release his tax returns.
“Questions swirl about the exact size of Trump’s fortune and whether the reality matches Trump’s claims; the nature of the family’s past and current business dealings overseas; the extent to which foreign interests seek to influence Trump through favorable dealings with his holdings or those of family members; the degree to which his hotels and other business operations have reaped enhanced revenue because of Trump’s presidency,” the publication notes.
Another mystery that could be unraveled is the precise nature of Trump’s relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
New York Times reporter Peter Baker tells Politico that “we don’t have the explanation why” Trump is “so seemingly enamored of Putin” and why “he so desperately wants his approval.”
Another issue that has the White House scrambling to deflect is the president’s health. Politico suggests revelations about the true state of Trump’s health could come back to haunt him as well.
“What was that unscheduled trip to Walter Reed Army Medical Center last November all about?” the publication asks. “What explains Trump’s unsteady appearance drinking water or walking down a ramp at West Point earlier this month?”
