Trump campaign ‘retooling’ because scaremongering ads have blown up in the president’s face: Election analyst

Published

on

On CNN Saturday, Niskanen Center political scientist Rachel Bitecofer explained how President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign has realized their strategy of trying to scare voters about crime and defunded police departments is backfiring.

“You’ve seen the commercial, we’ve all seen the commercial of the woman dialing 911. She’s looking for the response because somebody is going to break into her house,” said commentator Michael Smerconish. “This has been the big topic of the Trump campaign, oddly, they’ve gone dark in the last couple of days. My question, Rachel, in a commercial like this, who are they trying to reach, swing voters … or the base?”

“So, they’re trying to reach both,” said Bitecofer. “But I think the Trump strategy, which, by the way, they are pulling off the air and are going to retool because it’s obviously not working, is it’s about trying to — it’s really out of date. And it’s trying to convince people that, you know, racial minorities are coming to disrupt their peaceful suburban lifestyle and hedge off of that suburban loss. It’s a total misread of, like, what the mentality of what the suburban, college-educated voters are about.”

“Here’s what I will tell you,” added Bitecofer. “The Trump campaign is not a campaign that’s been tooled for addition, which is how traditional campaigns are tooled. It’s one that has been tooled for subtraction from the Biden campaign. It was a dubious strategy from the get-go, and I think they’re starting to realize how ineffective it is.”

"The U.S. will share any coronavirus vaccine it develops with the globe after American needs are met, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said Monday during a visit to Taiwan," reported Evie Fordham.

"Our first priority of course is to develop and produce enough quantity of safe and effective FDA-approved vaccines and therapeutics for use in the United States," said Azar. "But we anticipate having capacity that, once those needs are satisfied, those products would be available in the world community according to fair and equitable distributions that we would consult in the international community on ... After our departure from the WHO, we will work with others in the world community to find the appropriate vehicles for continuing to support, on a multilateral and bilateral basis, global public health on the order that the United States has done in the past."

Experts issue dire warning on Trump executive action on unemployment insurance

Published

on

"Literally every new detail about these executive orders confirms that in addition to being wildly unconstitutional, they will do absolutely nothing to help anyone who's suffering."

On top of serious questions about the directive's legality and workability, experts are warning that President Donald Trump's executive action to extend the federal boost to unemployment benefits at $400-per-week—using $44 billion in funds meant for disaster relief—leaves out the poorest Americans by design.
