The former Fox employee went on to talk about Trump's future designs for the GOP should the party continue to appease him.

"Trump is trying to figure out how can he exploit this in a way that will keep the Republican Party hopelessly divided, and therefore exploitable, because he needs this issue," he said. "It's going to be the litmus test that every republican candidate in 2022 is going to have to face as they go through these primaries."
