Anthony Scaramucci, the former White House communications director, believes he knows the exact month Donald Trump will decide not to run for President again.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, the friend turned enemy of the President had this to say:

He’s gonna drop out of the race because it’s gonna become very clear. OK, it’ll be March of 2020. He’ll likely drop out by March of 2020. It’s gonna become very clear that it’s impossible for him to win.

Scaramucci has well and truly turned on his former employer in recent weeks, labelling Trump “the fattest President” in response to the fat-shaming of a man at a recent rally as well as likening Trump to the Chernobyl disaster, presumably inspired by the recent HBO miniseries.

It was, however, another HBO sensation that 'The Mooch' referenced in the interview when discussing the President and why he should face a Republican challenger:

You know, this is like ‘Game of Thrones. We need an Arya Stark, okay? We gotta take this guy out because this is like the Night King. The minute the Night King is vaporized, all the zombies are gonna fall by the wayside, right? We had the Wicked Witch of the West, but he is the Wicked Witch of the West Wing. We gotta get some water thrown on him. He’ll start melting
