Victor Schwartz, a former law school dean, is predicting that President Trump may drop out of the election and use his remaining time to pursue his agenda.
Schwartz wrote an op-ed for The Washington Examiner that it is “distinctly possible” that Trump could follow the path of Lyndon B. Johnson.
Schwartz said, “On March 31, 1968, President Lyndon Johnson shocked the world when, in the middle of a speech on a totally different topic, he said: “I shall not seek and will not accept the nomination of my party for president in 1968.”
