British journalist Piers Morgan told fans this week that he would put on his “Nostradamus hat” to predict the 2020 U.S. presidential election outcome, and he foresees President Trump coming out on top.

The host of “Good Morning Britain” predicted in a 2015 interview with GQ magazine that Mr. Trump would win the Republican Party’s presidential nomination and go on to capture the White House if Hillary Clinton were his challenger. That successful prognostication prompted an op-ed Wednesday by Mr. Morgan as the one-year anniversary of Mr. Trump’s win nears.

In addition to mocking a planned day of rage by activists called “Scream helplessly at the sky on the anniversary of the election,” Mr. Morgan offered 10 reasons why the president’s 2020 chances look good.

An abridged version of his list includes:

  • “He’s the most resilient, uncompromising man in America. Love him or loathe him, Trump hasn’t changed or pivoted one iota from the candidate who ran for office.”
  • Trump’s [Republican] enemies are bailing out from the fight like conscientious objectors in the war.”
  • “Hollywood’s liberal elite, Trump’s most vociferous, influential and vicious opponents, have exposed themselves to be a bunch of shocking hypocrites whose high moral and ethical plinth now lies in a pile of ruins.”
  • “The Democrats don’t have anyone yet who can run against Trump and actually beat him.”
  • Hillary Clinton’s still hanging around like a malodorous failure to remind everyone on a daily basis of the world’s biggest and most shocking political defeat.”

The journalist buttressed his first five points by mentioning a stable U.S. economy, America’s rejuvenated superpower status, Mr. Trump’s social media savvy and base of support, and the claim that 70 percent of incumbent presidents are re-elected.

“So scream all your like next week, hysterical Trump-hating liberal snowflakes, but I’d save some of your voice for Wednesday, November 4, 2020,” the pundit concluded.
