Chris Hayes Dismantles Donald Trump Campaign's Biggest Con

“He wants you to believe that he’s strong, but he’s not. He is not a colossus. He’s a con man," said the MSNBC host.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes on Monday night shattered the perception that Donald Trump is unbeatable, suggesting the president is much more politically vulnerable than he may realize.

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.”
