Trump’s racists attacks are ‘central to 2020 strategy’ – expect ‘more, not less race-baiting madness’: Report

President Donald Trump‘s racist attacks on four progressive Democratic Congresswomen are not “improvisational madness,” but rather calculated “race-baiting” that is “central to his 2020 strategy.”

So reports Axios, citing sources “close to Trump” who “predict more, not less, of the race-baiting madness.”

Why?

Axios explains:

“Trump knows that in 2016, he won the white vote by 20+ points.”

He knows most “older, white evangelicals…are unlikely to ditch him, no matter how offensive his comments.”

He knows Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who Trump today called one of the “four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse,”  is a “4-for-4 grievance magnet” for his Fox News audience.

Axios says “white swing voters agreed with Trump on immigration,” and  “white Democrats with high levels of racial resentment were likely to vote … Republican.”

“Facebook is often his incubator. He has spent three times more than all Democratic contenders combined on Facebook, with a mix of message-testing immigration lines to appealing to Hispanics who seem susceptible to his worldview.”
