Politico, citing two people familiar with conversations with the president, reported that Trump views 2020 as “the real election” and doesn’t see the midterms as a referendum on himself, even though that is what he is telling crowds at campaign rallies.

“These are their elections … and if they screw it up, it’s not my fault,” Politico reported Trump as saying, citing one person with knowledge of these talks.

Trump told The Associated Press last week that he would not accept blame if the GOP loses seats in the midterms.
