Former White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney conceded that if the election becomes a “referendum” on President Trump, the Republican incumbent will face “real headwinds” against Joe Biden, Politico reports.
Said Mulvaney: “If the president can go back to drawing those contrasts between him and Joe Biden — that becomes a race between Trump and Biden — I think the president does extraordinarily well. And he shows people, ‘Look, if you hire me, this is what you get. If you hire him, you end up with no jobs.’”
He added: “If it ends up being a popularity contest or, worse, a referendum on President Trump, I think he’s got some real headwinds to face.”Save to Favorites
