Camerota asked Gowdy if he was leaving politics because of all the toxicity, and he continued to lament the victory-at-any-cost attitude in the government:

“I was thinking last night when President Obama was elected, several Republicans said their objective was to make him a one term president, not do good for the country…and there were lots of people who were laying in bed dreaming of running in 2020 to make President Trump a one term president. So, the notion that folks work together for the betterment of the country I think right now with this moment in American politics, we mainly work towards either keeping the majority or becoming the majority.”
