"For all the intellectuals out there whose hair is going to go on fire, ‘But we're becoming like them. We're becoming like them,' we cannot lose the next election. We will go back 50 years."

Deutsch has offered public doubts about whether a Democrat can defeat Trump in next year's election.

Last month, following the first Democratic primary debate from Miami, Deutsch said that in his "heart of hearts," he didn't see "see anybody" onstage who would beat Trump.
