MSNBC contributor Donny Deutsch said President Donald Trump could be re-elected in 2020 by a "landslide" following the morning's employment news.

What are the details?

Deutsch, who appeared on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," explained Friday that a Trump victory could be in the bag based on unemployment's record 18-year low, as well as dealings with North Korea.

A Friday report revealed that the unemployment rate was at 3.9 percent, which is the lowest the U.S. level has been in 18 years. The economy also added 164,000 jobs in April.

During his "Morning Joe" appearance, Deutsch said, "3.9, jobs, if he does the North Korea thing, ISIS — this man, unless there’s some real serious stuff in these indictments is gonna get re-elected in a landslide."

Steve Rattner, "Morning Joe's" economic analyst, said that Deutsch's comments weren't off-base.

"Donny is right, it’s a good number," he said. "I take Donny's point, in the fall of 2020, if the economy looks like this, it will be very good for Donald Trump."

Anything else?

This isn't the first time Deutsch has called a "landslide" victory in 2020 for Trump.

In February, Deutsch said the very same thing — that Trump would be re-elected in a "landslide" — if he weren't removed from office first.

Deutsch, who was a part of MSNBC's "Deadline: White House," discussed the Russian investigation, and the White House's "ongoing attack" on the FBI.

When one of the panelists brought up Trump's low approval ratings, she and Deutsch bantered back and forth that ratings didn't matter because of Trump's core supporters.

"He will win again in a landslide," Deutsch said of the 2020 presidential race. "Because people vote with their pocketbooks, and that’s what’s scary to me."
