On Thursday, former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) predicted that the Republican Party will collapse after the 2020 presidential election — whether President Donald Trump wins or loses.

Walsh, a conservative congressman originally elected during the 2010 tea party wave, has been one of the president's most vocal critics from the right. After mounting an ill-fated primary challenge to attempt to deny Trump the nomination for a second term, he has abandoned the GOP.
