MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell said the idea that President Donald Trump would not leave the White House if he loses the 2020 presidential election is "gaining more and more currency" with people after he delivered a monologue Tuesday night on how Trump surrenders all the time. Specifically, he was speaking about the census question being knocked down by the Supreme Court.
"There's a very important lesson in today's surrender for what will happen the next time a new president is sworn in Donald Trump is forced to leave the White House," O'Donnell said. "There are actually people who are gaining more and more currency with the belief that that won't happen, that Donald Trump simply will not accept the inauguration of another president, especially after the president tweeted a video suggesting that he was going to stay president forever. But of course Donald Trump will surrender the White House because he always surrenders to the stronger power."
"Donald Trump has surrendered more times than we can count, beginning with Mexico paying for the wall. He surrendered to Mexico on that immediately after taking office and got on the phone to beg the president of Mexico to stop talking about it so that the Trump surrender on paying for the wall could quietly fade away," O'Donnell also said on Tuesday's broadcast of his MSNBC program.
