Wednesday on MSNBC's 'Deadline: White House' with Nicole Wallace, #NeverTrump GOP strategist Steve Schmidt decried those saying that Starbucks founder Howard Schultz's independent run would be a "spoiler" in the 2020 election, saying:
STEVE SCHMIDT: The people who are doing the shouting, almost universally, are the same people who said Joe Biden shouldn't run because it is Hillary Clinton's turn, and they're the same people who put their thumb on the scale for Hillary Clinton against Bernie Sanders because he couldn't win.
And they guaranteed us that Donald Trump would never be elected.
Schmidt made a name for himself in 2016 as one of the most vocal #NeverTrump Republicans and predicted a landslide win for Hillary Clinton until the end.
MSNBC has reportedly cut ties with Schmidt amid news that he is advising Schultz's presidential run.
