According to a recent report from Fox News, Donald Trump may drop out of the 2020 presidential race if he believes he has no chance of winning.
The Trump campaign responded to the accusation by calling it “the granddaddy of fake news”.
“Everyone knows that media polling has always been wrong about President Trump – they undersample Republicans and don’t screen for likely voters – in order to set false narratives,” Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh told Fox News.
“It won’t work. There was similar fretting in 2016 and if it had been accurate, Hillary Clinton would be in the White House right now,” he added.
However, this news is not coming from Trump’s rivals at CNN or MSNBC who he often accuses of spreading fake news, but rather, this news was reported by Fox, which usually has a very close and friendly relationship with the president.
The Fox report also suggested that a number of Republican party insiders are concerned about Trump’s chances of getting re-elected because of current polling numbers, but the Trump administration is quick to point to the poll numbers that showed him losing the 2016 election.
Charles Gasparino, the Fox News reporter who published the rumors, said that he had spoken to “major players” in the GOP to get his information. He said that one of the insiders described the president’s mood as “fragile.”
BREAKING— (thread)GOP operatives are for the first time raising the possibility that @realDonaldTrump could drop out of the race if his poll numbers don’t rebound. Over the weekend I spoke to a sample of major players; one described Trumps current psyche as “fragile.” I’m

Trump has had a very rough year, facing strong opposition from both the right and left heading into the election year. Trump was depending on going into the election with a strong economy behind him, but the conditions of the pandemic have prevented that from happening. Furthermore, growing protests against police brutality has put Trump in opposition to many young people.
However, for Trump, the most painful attacks are coming from his own team. Last week, the president was furious about an advertisement that right-wing groups were putting on television. The advertisement called attention to some recent footage which appears to show Trump struggling to move or perform basic functions.
Sorry to inform the Do Nothing Democrats, but I am getting VERY GOOD internal Polling Numbers. Just like 2016, the @nytimes Polls are Fake! The @FoxNews Polls are a JOKE! Do you think they will apologize to me & their subscribers AGAIN when I WIN? People want LAW, ORDER & SAFETY!

The organization that released the advertisement is known as the Lincoln Project, and it is comprised by a group of longtime Republican campaign strategists who don’t want to see Trump win the upcoming election. They are coming out against Trump because they believe he is dangerous for the country.
The video showed footage of the aging president struggling to walk down a small ramp at the West Point graduation ceremony. The footage also showed the president struggling to lift small bottles of water.
The narrator of the advertisement tells the viewer, “Something’s wrong with Donald Trump.”
The narrator went on to call Trump a “weak, unfit and shaky president,” adding that he does not have enough strength to lead, nor the character to admit his shortcomings.
In the previous election, the Trump campaign made regular references to Hillary Clinton’s health to diminish public confidence in her ability to be a leader. He has also called his current rival Joe Biden “sleep Joe,” and suggested that the former vice president has a deteriorating mental capacity. Now it appears that Trump’s enemies are turning this strategy back on him.
