Trump faces “the most devastating headwinds that any president has ever faced,” said Ronna McDaniel, chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, who participates in daily calls with Kushner and Parscale on strategy.

Matt Schlapp, American Conservative Union chairman and a White House ally, said the president is favored to win — if he can stay focused on his agenda and good news on the economy while fighting the impeachment inquiry.

“Are you asking me if I wish the president would stay on message? My answer would be one word: Yes,” he said…

Kushner has told Trump he believes that Democratic leaders made a significant strategic mistake by initiating impeachment proceedings, allowing the incumbent to run as an outsider challenging a Washington resistant to change.
