The biggest boost to President Trump’s re-election chances are the Democrats and the media. Recent events highlight both groups continually make the same mistake in their quest to ensure he becomes a one-term president.
Namely; they inadvertently prove him right about their motives and that is becoming the story. Democrats should be doing is showing the voters they have an alternative and clear plan to improve the nation. The media should be reporting the news versus delivering biased coverage.
I’ve written this many times in the past. The media should simply report the news and let the American voter decide President Trump’s fitness for office. Instead, the media insults his base and infuriates independent voters by constantly trying to prove he is an illegitimate president.
It’s an old tune. President Reagan was senile. President George H Bush could not relate to the common man because he did not know how much it cost for a gallon of milk. The Supreme Court stole the presidency from Al Gore and awarded it to President George W Bush. Ever notice all the Republican presidents did not belong but President Clinton and Obama were saviors?
Note to the media: You can only cry wolf so often before no one believes you.
The Democrats are no better. Their actions lend credence to President Trump’s claim of a witch hunt and position him as a clear choice against socialism and obstructionism.
It seems the Robert Mueller investigation will end without proof of any collusion by President Trump’s campaign. However, watching this soap opera unfold there may be a compelling case that members of the Justice Department may have conspired to reverse the election results. Think about that for a minute.
The Democrats did not get the outcome they wanted from Mueller so Congressman Adam Schiff wants to investigate President Trump’s finances. He claims President Trump is making decisions based on his own financial interests versus doing what is best for the nation. As the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee he has every right to launch the investigation.
Will he find a smoking gun that proves President Trump made a decision that jeopardizes our national interests to make a buck? The probability of that happening is extremely remote and most sane people will see right through the charade. That will anger voters even more towards what they believe is an unfair attack.
People may not like President Trump’s style but they despise unfairness more. The Democrats are appearing to be more concerned about obstructing his efforts than helping the nation and voters don’t like that optic.
President Trump will continually beat the drum about another witch hunt on the campaign trail. It will play well to his base and also resonate with uncommitted voter.
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocascio-Cortez is the gift that keeps on giving. Can President Trump have a better ad than the billboard in Times Squares that screams “Thanks for nothing, AOC?” It claims her socialist views cost New York City 25,000 jobs, $4 billion in lost wages, and $12 billion in lost economic impact for New York city?
Thanks to her Green New Deal resolution all 2020 Democratic hopefuls must sign onto the concept in order to get through the primary. It’s one thing to play to the far-Left fringe in the primary, it’s quite another to attract moderate and independents to a socialist agenda in the general election.
She is single-handedly giving President Trump the clearest reason to vote for him since he unveiled his list of Supreme Court nominees. And speaking of which, he’ll have a field day painting his challenger as a socialist chomping at the bit to add a socialist supreme court justice.
Finally, we come to the wall. President Trump will be able to forge a clear difference between him and his challengers. Democrats will have a hard time explaining all those videos of them supporting a wall during President Obama’s administration and their about face during President Trump’s term.
It’s early in the process so anything can happen and change but it seems more likely by the day that 2020 will be another choice between the lesser of two evils. Moderates and Independents will not support socialism and President Trump has a strong base. That’s a recipe for re-election.
If Democrats want to fulfill their dream of a one term Trump presidency they may want to find a moderate that can articulate why she or he is better for the nation than President Trump.
