President Trump “feels cheated” by the 2016 election probe that hung over his White House, but vindication will come in a 2020 “landslide,” according to outside adviser Jerry Falwell Jr.
Falwell, the president of Virginia’s Christian conservative Liberty University, said that the president expressed his views in a call after his Wednesday speech in Panama City Beach, Fla.
Falwell said that Trump agreed with his humorous weekend tweet that he get a couple years tacked on to his first term, a joke many Democrats took seriously.
“I think it’s the way he feels too,” said Falwell.
After the best week ever for @realDonaldTrump – no obstruction, no collusion, NYT admits @BarackObama did spy on his campaign, & the economy is soaring. I now support reparations – Trump should have 2 yrs added to his 1st term as pay back for time stolen by this corrupt failed coup

“I talked to him last night, after his speech, and he feels vindicated and he feels cheated by having this cloud over his presidency for the last two years and it’s just wrong. Something like that should not happen in the United States,” he added in an interview about this weekend’s commencement address by Vice President Mike Pence.
Falwell noted that Trump’s crowd in Florida was again huge and he said the support is there for his reelection.
“I think he’s going to win by a landslide in 2020,” Falwell said.
“I think people see how he’s been mistreated, and they see the Trump derangement syndrome on the Left and in the media, and I think they are going to reward him,” he told Secrets.
