Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is warning Republicans considering challenging President Donald Trump in 2020 that it would be a waste of time.
The Kentucky Republican told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday that that it would be very, very difficult to unseat the president in the primary.
Republicans, such as retiring Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, are considering challenging Trump in 2020.
McConnell said that would be a waste of time frankly. But the people who would be likely to challenge the president would not be coming to me for advice.(continued)

Ditch has given up on #ResistingTrump?
Short of a complete economic collapse.... Trump will win re-election by the biggest landslide since Reagans Re-election.
What the 2020 campaign WILL do is bring out a LARGE slate of potential Democrat candidates, who will tear each other up like a roomful of tomcats. Were I one of those considering being part of that prospect, I would be filled with the worst sort of dread and terror. Oppo research is already running in overdrive, and only will gear up even higher and higher.
But that may be even more entertaining for the spectators than watching “The Purge” or “American Horror Show”.
In other words, more winning.
TRUMP was beating everyone when most people thought he was a Liberal TROLL!!!
WTF is going to beat TRUMP now after Gorsuch & Kavanaugh?
FLAKE, JEB BUSH, and KASICH will run to pour fire on DEMOCRAT lies and innuendos. They are bitter and small.
Just project out another 2 years at the same rate of WIN
The WINING will be massive and unexpected.
Trump wins, game, set and match.
It's the tea party all over again, the guys in power pretended to be on board but never were, the young bulls coming in actually meant it but lacked the numbers to make a real impact. This time the new young bulls will add their numbers to the tea partiers still in congress and maybe they'll have enough heads to actually be a major force in driving policy.
If so, that means Trump will have transformed the GOP. May it be so!
I think Mitch has realized that he likes winning and hes feeling the love of the GOP(finally). He finally doesnt feel like a hapless loser.
He also knows that he personally will be much better off backing a great conservative POTUS like Trump.
Hes also seen what happened to petty anti-Trump gadflies like Corker and Flake. If Juan McLame hadnt croaked, he would have been driven out of his senate seat eventually. McLame was ultimately a HATED Arizona senator with a less than 20 percent approval rating last summer.
“Republicans, such as retiring Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, are considering challenging Trump in 2020.”
I think that’s a great idea. Spend more of his money, i.e., flush it down the toilet.
The GOP establishment might be planning to pull a Reagan. Once Bush senior became president the first thing they did was get rid of all the Reagan people (non-establishment people). We must never let that happen again.
I dont understand all these newcomers on the left who think they can be President. I heard on the radio Jeff Flake is thinking about it. He was elected in 2012. He did agree to that extra Week of FBI investigation so maybe he has some traction withthe left.
FLAKE, JEB BUSH, and KASICH will run .....
No he is smart enough to wait him out.
McConnell is still a Bush League Republican hell bent on making America into North Mexico.
[None of them has a chance in Hell, with or without Trump.]
They don’t expect to win, only to badmouth.
Or East China...
I think t going for 440 electoral votes in2020
Especially with that field of candidates.
