Recommendation 1: More of this please
This is something I’d like to see a lot more of from former President Trump. It’s a lengthy interview with Breitbart.com that doesn’t focus obsessively on the legal assaults on him or relitigating the 2020 election, but on his accomplishments in office, how Biden is destroying the country, and how he would reverse America's downward plunge if he were back in the White House.
We need more of this because the Democrats know that they can’t run on the strength of their policies or their accomplishments because their policies are disasters wherever they’re tried. They would lose in any A-B comparison of liberal vs. conservatives policies. This was perfectly expressed in a recent Babylon Bee headline about a Gavin Newsom/Ron DeSantis debate: “Governor Of State People Are Fleeing From Agrees To Debate Governor Of State They Are Fleeing To.”
For that reason, they have to be like bad magicians and create endless distractions to keep the public from noticing their trickery. Their limited bag of trick includes accusing their opponents of being racists and wanting to bring back slavery (even though the GOP was founded on ending slavery), claiming Republicans want to take away women’s rights (when they're obliterating women’s rights and won't even say what a woman is), and of course, demonizing Trump and hitting him with an endless string of partisan indictments for speech or actions nobody else would ever be charged over.
Yes, that’s outrageous and needs to be stopped. But when Trump talks about nothing but that, or the 2020 election, he’s playing their game on their field. For all the horrible stuff from the past few years that needs to be corrected, voters will be more motivated by a positive agenda explaining how Trump will make their lives better. After three years of Biden, they desperately need someone to help them. If he can remind them of how he did it before and explain how he will do it again – as he does in this interview – that’s a much better message than just reacting to the attacks, which will keep coming anyway, no matter what he does.
Recommendation 2: Stop with the combative social media posts please!
Speaking of things that Trump should not focus on, I wish he would let his lawyers handle his legal problems and not make their job harder with the combative social media posts that hand his opponents ammunition to use against him on a silver platter. Like this attempt by Jack Smith to block discovery, citing Trump’s social media posts as justification.
Yes, I know it’s a ridiculous twisting of what Trump said, but he should know by now that of course they’re going to do that. Remember what we heard on every old rerun of “Dragnet”: "Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.” I’ve never heard a better summation of the strategy the Democrats are using against Trump.
