‘Saw a woman walk miles on crutches to see him’: CNN guest explains why Trump will win a 2020 ‘landslide’

A guest on a CNN panel made it clear that President Trump supporters are not wallowing in collusion or impeachment fears and will usher him into a reelection win in 2020.

Political activist Amy Kremer, the co-founder of Women for Trump, told CNN host Chris Cuomo on “Cuomo Prime Time” Wednesday why she believes Trump will win in a “landslide” in 2020 thanks, in part, to supporters who are tired of the attacks on him and are looking for the president to solve their everyday problems.

“I want to say that I just came from Pennsylvania spending several days there,” she said, noting the rally the president held Monday in the town of Montoursville in central Pennsylvania. “I was outside of that rally on Monday night.”

Kremer painted a picture of Americans who were interested in what the president had to say and seemed supportive of his policies.

“Those people aren’t waking up worried about collusion, obstruction, impeachment,” she continued. “They are waking up across America worried about how they’re going to feed families and clothe families. Do they have jobs, can they put a roof over their children’s head.”

In fact, Kremer noted, Trump’s supporters are so committed that they almost literally will go the extra mile for him.

“I saw a woman walk several miles on crutches – I have a picture of her –  to see this president. Women with their walkers are going into this see this president,” she said.

“I predict, this goes on, this is going to be a landslide for this president,” Kremer added.

Cuomo interjected with the argument that Trump is pursuing his own political interests and that the people coming out to the rallies are probably more interested in infrastructure than in his political agenda. Earlier Wednesday, the president reportedly walked out of a scheduled meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer which had been set to discuss an infrastructure budget.

Kremer fired back at Cuomo with a reality check, flipping his narrative on its head.

“Actually, you know what, at a luncheon yesterday they said they were tired of the attacks on this president,” she said. “They were tired of the witch hunt and they wanted it to end.”

The contentious interview continued as Kremer and lobbyist David Urban, a former senior adviser for Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, battled with Cuomo over the political games Democrats continue to play in their attacks against the president.

Trump unleashed a scathing rebuke of Democrats after he prematurely left the meeting on Wednesday, demanding the that the “phony investigations” end if they want to have meaningful policy progress.

“I don’t do cover-ups,” Trump said, referring to Pelosi’s claim just hours before their meeting as she emerged from a closed-door meeting with Congressional Democrats to accuse the President of the United States of being involved in a “cover-up.”

“We do believe that it’s important to follow the facts. We believe that no one is above the law, including the President of the United States,” she said.

Rather than clarify her remarks or move toward common ground with the president after their failed meeting, the California Democrat reiterated her claims that Trump is engaged in an “unprecedented cover-up campaign of the facts.”
