Varney: Trump's performance against coronavirus 'not looking good' for Democrats




 

FOX Business' Stuart Varney, in his latest "My Take," argues that President Trump's managing of the coronavirus outbreak only leaves the Democrats in a bad position for the upcoming election.

"We are seven months from the election and the Democrats know they have a problem," he said. "Likely candidate Joe Biden is sidelined and gets no traction. The primaries and the Milwaukee convention are in chaos."

VARNEY: PUBLIC RAGE BECOMING COMMON AMONG SENIOR DEMOCRATS

Varney said, worst of all for Democrats, Trump's performance during the coronavirus outbreak has given him popular approval and is boosting him in the polls.

"At this stage, the Democrats are not looking good," he said.

Varney said he believes Speaker Nancy Pelosi has "something up her sleeve" such as a new round of investigations after calling for an "after-action review."

"You know what that means," he added. "After the virus, investigate the president's actions and come up with some dirt. Some kind of scandal. And put it all on national television!"

According to Varney, Congressman Adam Schiff has already joined Pelosi's efforts by demanding a "9/11 style" commission.

"There is no end to the Democrats' contempt for this president," Varney said. "Adam Schiff is just dying to get back on television."

Varney said Democrats have tried to "smear" President Trump with Russia investigations and impeachment and now they're "at it again." Varney believes there's nothing else the Democrats can do but "investigate and come up with an October surprise."

"It's a desperate political strategy … what a gamble," he said. "If it fails, it surely opens the door to a second Trump term."

The coronavirus pandemic has forced Trump and presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden to halt campaign rallies. Trump said on Twitter that if Democratic Governor Roy Cooper does not immediately answer "whether or not the space will be allowed to be fully occupied," then the party will find "with all of the jobs and economic development it brings, another Republican National Convention site."

He finally ordered flags lowered to half-staff at the White House only after being badgered to do so by his critics and otherwise took no public notice as the American death toll from the coronavirus pandemic approached a staggering 100,000.While the country neared six digits of death, the president who repeatedly criticized his predecessor for...
