Will President Donald Trump have a primary challenger in 2020?

Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake thinks so.

As CNN reported, Flake told Georgia Public Broadcastings Political Rewind on Wednesday that the president is currently inviting a political opponent for the 2020 election.

That would mean Trump would face a Republican challenger in the primary instead of earning the nomination outright.

"I think that certainly depends on him," Flake said. "I think he could govern in a way that he wouldn't. But, I think that the way that the direction he's headed right now, just kinda drilling down on the base rather than trying to expand the base I think he's inviting one."

Trump and Flake have been critical of each other in recent weeks. Flakes been a critic of Trump since early on, and Trump has fought back by speaking out against the Arizona senator.

At a rally on Tuesday, Trump didnt mention Flake by name, but did say that Arizonas other senator is weak on borders, which is not unlike Trumps tweet last week that called Flake toxic and weak on borders.

Trump again tweeted about Flake on Wednesday.

Flake, meanwhile, talked Trump on Fox News this week, and was asked why Trump didnt support him.

"I don't know. I want to work with the president when I think that he's right, and I'll challenge him when I think that he's wrong, Flake said.
