WATCH: Scarborough Says Trump is Letting GOP Know He’s Throwing in the Towel

GOP congresspeople and senators have backed Donald Trump on nearly all of his decisions. They don’t really have much of a choice. Trump has an iron grip on the Republican party and has punished nearly every lawmaker who’s attempted to criticize him.

That, however, doesn’t mean that support goes both ways. Recently, news leaked that Jared Kushner is holding back funds desperately need by incumbent Republicans. And Joe Scarborough feels that he might even bail on the party. The MSNBC host claimed Friday morning that Trump’s delayed election idea was a signal to the GOP that he can’t win in November.

The host said of the proposed election delay, “He really knows he’s going to lose this fall. I mean, he’s sending the message to Republican senators ‘I’m going to lose.'”

Scarborough continued:

“After this happened yesterday, Republican senators were aghast this was, in effect, Donald Trump throwing in the towel, making excuses already for his loss for an election that’s, what, 97, 98 days away, and he’s already throwing in the towel? So he’s — he’s already talking about doubting the validity of November’s elections because he knows he’s going to lose.”
