Shark Tank's Kevin O'Leary: Trump Has 100% Chance of Re-election

    Why Kevin O'Leary says Trump has '100 percent' chance of getting reelected in 2020

    Video is great and worth a watch.

    At the CNBC Disruptor 50 Roadshow in Philadelphia on Wednesday, the financial expert and “Shark Tank” star blamed past administrations’ regulation-heavy policies and applauded Trump’s push to eliminate the red tape for companies nationwide, facilitating the lives of America’s small-business owners.

    “If you think this administration is getting voted out in the next election, you are 100 percent wrong. Where I go to Amarillo, Texas; Champaign; Urbana; Fargo, his name is painted on the barn, and I see it for miles around. And look, I’m not trying to advocate here for it. I’m just telling you, if you think sitting in Boston or Philly or New York or LA that’s America, that’s not America. I go to America, and they love what’s happening,” he said.

    Wow! Mr Wonderful making such a bold prediction.

    I suspect he's close to right. I'm just leary of calling it 100%. A lot can happen between now and election time.

    Apparently Kevin O'Leary should sign up for a remedial math class.

    I expect he will be reelected. I don’t know about 100% but I think the odds are in his favor.

    I think it is 100% certain that Trump will not relinquish the office after the 2020 election.

    Well, Obama did, George Bush did, and Bill Clinton before him did as well. I expect if a Democrat wins that Trump would relinquish the office. Unlike Venzuela, I feel certain that the nations institutions would demand it.

    I have faith that Americans are smarter than that. If it took me 30 seconds to see through Trump, two years of exposure should be more than enough for even the most gullible to begin to have serious doubts.

    But I fear Russian interference, along with McConnell and his enablers holding the welcome mat out for them, will tip.the balance. As far as I am concerned, McConnell should be indicted for treason. The FBI and DOJ have issued serious warnings, and He's telling Russia to come on down.

    Pretty bold claim considering the latest state by state polling shows him underwater in Florida, Texas, Georgia and more, and the Dems winning by 400 EC votes.

    Obviously lots can change between now and the election, but it’s a strange time to make bullish predictions about his electability.

    Mr. Wonderful (O'Leary) is know for making bold predictions.

    It's why he's been on Shark Tank for so long.

    Geography, too:

    No, I'm pretty sure that those are all parts of America. In fact, Boston, Philly, and New York were all more fundamental to the founding of the country than were Amarillo and Champaign Urbana.

    Perspective makes a world of difference to what a person sees.


    I knew a small business owner and he explained to me that keeping abreast of regulations was a full time job in his business.

    Again perspective matters. I've spent 3 1/2 years on or close to the minimum wage and I can tell you as many other single people on a minimum wage can, that raising it is the last thing we want. But Middle class people just don't understand that an extra dollar or so doesn't cover the loss from losing Medicaid.

    The best chance the DNC has is a dark horse, someone who comes out into the limelight late in the game, whose policies have not been revealed, who talks positive stuff which doesn't make any sense.

    The DNC also lacked a main policy in 2016, having one candidate way off on the left and the other off on the right, favoring the elimination of more working class jobs through her TPP 'gold standard of trade agreements' while Bernie wanted more working class jobs.

    And they're back at it again, complaining about each other and everything else just to waste time so nobody finds out how bad the policies they support actually are.

    But non-citizens voting doesn't bother you? It's going to be very hard for the democrats to win the 2020 election given that they are still trying to win the 2016 election. Let. It. Go.

    Non citizens voting? Wasn't there an investigation into that?

    Which is why you need universal health coverage so you can insist on a decent wage without having to worry whether you will qualify for healthcare or not.

    Yea, I guess that's why the GOP lost so badly in 2018. The millions of illegal non-citizens voting!
