‘A Big Storm Is Coming’: Top Republican Warns Trump Is Taking The Country Off The Cliff
“There’s a big storm coming,” former Congressman Mark Sanford (R-SC) said in a video uploaded to YouTube on Monday, warning that the American economy is on the brink of collapse due to President Donald Trump’s trade war.
“America is in the most precarious financial position,” Sanford said, adding that “not dealing with it could crush our economy, it could wipe out whatever we’ve saved, it could even destroy our republic.”
Sanford’s warning about deficits and the economy comes as experts are increasingly worried that Trump’s trade war could cause a recession by next year.
It is the latest move suggesting Sanford, who was ousted from his congressional seat in a primary last year amid anger over his “insufficient loyalty” to President Donald Trump, is leaning toward a primary challenge against the president.
While Sanford’s challenge would be almost certain to fail, it is a sign of Trump’s potential weakness as an incumbent.
