Chris Wallace Argues Trump is Missing ‘Cultural Shift’ in the Country: He ‘Runs the Risk of Being Left Behind’


Fox News’ Chris Wallace said Friday that President Donald Trump risks being “left behind” by the massive cultural shift going on in the United States right now.

In speaking with colleague Bill Hemmer, Wallace referenced a Wall Street Journal column from Kimberly Strassel saying the president is only hurting himself and giving his critics ammunition to go after him.

“You’ve got this major cultural shift,” Wallace said. “We don’t know how long it will last, but when you see the NFL, Roger Goodell, flipping on kneeling during the national anthem, more remarkably when you see NASCAR with its roots in the South banning the confederate flag, they think that there’s a real cultural shift going on, and what Kim Strassel was saying — and I agree with her— is that the president doesn’t seem to be reacting to that cultural shift and runs the risk of being left behind and that would be a bad place to be when you’re running for reelection.”

That being said, Wallace also dinged Joe Biden a bit and said there’s a reason he’s “not going to be able to put this race away” so easily.

He said that even though some Democrats won’t say so publicly, “Biden is best when you don’t see him and when he’s not out there conceivably stepping in it.”
