‘I Am Nervous’: GOP Senators Admit They Are Terrified Trump Will Crash The Economy And Ruin Their Careers

A new report on Thursday revealed that multiple Republican Senators are growing nervous with the economy under Donald Trump’s leadership and many of them admit that this could ruin their political future.

According to Politico, Republicans have been growingly getting worried with Trump’s trade war, which has cost the economy billions of dollars and has no clear objective or exit strategy.

“There’s no question that trade uncertainty is contributing to the slowdown,” Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) told Politico. “We’re in a very good place. The danger is: Where are we going to be a year from now if concerns about trade continue to be an irritant to growth?”

“The biggest risk to the economy is the whole trade situation,” said Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI). “We stopped doing the regulatory burden, we have a fairer tax system … and the whole trade war has injected a huge dose of uncertainty and instability.”

The biggest problem for Republicans is that Trump’s trade war is hurting them in key states where a red seat could quickly turn blue in 2020.

“Everyone acknowledges that the economy is good, but they are still uneasy about their own circumstances,” a Republican official working on Senate races told Politico. “I am nervous that people will lose their patience and want to start seeing results.”
