On Friday, CNN commentator Gloria Borger explained how President Donald Trump is gearing up for 2020 by repeating his 2016 presidential campaign strategy.
After a rally in Grand Rapids Michigan, Trump ranted about Democrats and special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
After playing a mash-up of Trump’s remarks at the rally, CNN host Wolf Blitzer said it “sounded like a reelection strategy in the works.”
“It’s almost hard to describe,” Borger said. “He had one of the best weeks of his presidency with the Mueller report. Instead, he is going back to the way he was during the campaign. Maybe it will work for him and maybe it won’t.”
“He is full of grievance,” she said after Trump told his base that they were “elite.”
“The need to say ‘I’m better than you are. I’m better than my political opponents. I have a bigger house. I have a bigger apartment.’ He has the need to say whatever they believe is phony. ‘The resistance is stupid and ridiculous,'” she said.
“What we see is the real Donald Trump. Let’s not mention the language coming from the podium of the president of the United States — highly inappropriate,” she said.

Lincoln Project releases harrowing new video of the future if Trump wins re-election
The Lincoln Project, the group of former top GOP strategists seeking to beat President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, released another new video on Monday evening.
Unlike other videos, the latest release did not feature Trump saying crazy things. Instead, it is more like a 60-second short film.
It features a mother listening to election night returns. She goes into her son's bedroom and lovingly awakens him.
"Hey honey, you asked me to wake you and tell you what happened in the election," she says.
"Who won?" the child asked.
"Trump," she replied. "Trump won."
