The host of “All In with Chris Hayes” acknowledged there was a “real unmistakable sense of fear among Democrats” that Trump will win reelection in November after the GOP-controlled Senate voted to acquit him on impeachment charges.
Trump’s campaign is keen to project the president as a “colossus” with a “juggernaut” of support behind him, the news anchor noted.
But Hayes said commentary about Trump’s alleged ascendency was wildly overstated and warned Democrats not to fall for the con.
“Remember, a majority of the country still opposes this man,” said Hayes, who highlighted how Trump lost the popular vote to his 2016 Democratic rival Hillary Clinton by more than 3 million votes.
“He is weak. He is vulnerable. Politically, he’s beatable,” Hayes added. “He wants you to believe that he’s strong, but he’s not. He is not a colossus. He’s a con man.”
