Following President Donald Trump’s campaign rally-style speech in Pennsylvania over the weekend, Philippe Reines, a former senior adviser to Hillary Clinton, said he understands why Trump could win re-election in 2020.
Trump was in Pennsylvania on Saturday to help boost Republican Rick Saccone, who is running against Democrat Conor Lamb in the special election for Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District.
Whether Trump will boost Saccone to victory Tuesday remains to be seen.
Reines explained to Fox News host Jesse Watters that he didn’t enjoy the “walk down memory lane” during the speech, but noted that “Boy, does Donald Trump know how to keep an audience in the palm of his hands.
In addition to serving as a senior adviser to Clinton during her years as secretary of state, Reines served as an adviser to Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, where he was made famous for playing Trump during Clinton’s debate preparations.
