Donald Trump Jr. reportedly thinks his dad is going to lose in November

While most Trump campaign officials are remarkably optimistic about President Trump's re-election chances, one person reportedly isn't feeling so cheery: his son, Donald Trump Jr.

A prominent conservative activist who is in regular contact with Trump Jr. and campaign officials told The New York Times that he is "the only person who thinks they're going to lose. He's like, 'We're losing, dude, and we're going to get really hurt when we lose.'"

Trump Jr.'s biggest concern appears to be that if his father doesn't win in November, various prosecutors investigating the Trump Organization will be waiting to charge them, the activist told the Times. Trump Jr. also shared with the activist that he does not believe there could be a "peaceful transition" between the Trump and Biden administrations, and they plan to "shoot the prisoners."

Andy Surabian, a spokesman for Trump Jr., told the Times this is "100 percent false. Don does not have these concerns."
