“Chris, you know it’s way too early to be talking about the 2020 [election],” Johnson said on CNN’s “New Day” when asked if he will support Trump in a 2020 reelection bid.

“No, it isn’t, not to say that you support the guy who’s president, who’s the head of your party,” CNN anchor Chris Cuomo pushed back.
Johnson argued that there could be a different landscape in 2020 and pointed to the upcoming November midterm elections.
“It could be a completely different world by 2020. We have a 2018 election first,” Johnson said. “So, you know, I understand the kind of ‘gotcha’ question you’re engaging here. But it’s just way too early to even be talking about it.”
Cuomo said he was “offended” by Johnson’s view of the inquiry as a “gotcha” question.
Both parties are currently focused on the upcoming midterms, where the GOP will have to defend its majorities in both the House and the Senate.
