Which brings me to a radical concept I’ve been kicking round for some time now: Trump’s greatest likelihood at profitable can be to stop issuing statements — or tweets — about something aside from the financial system. And to chop ALL statements and tweets all the way down to, roughly, one a day.
No Mueller report. No name-calling of potential Democratic candidates. No nothing — aside from tweeting or talking in regards to the present state of the financial system. And doing that after a day.
Sure, such a method would possibly immediate accusations that Trump is hiding from the media. Or that he’s strolling away from issues corresponding to constructing the border wall that his base fairly clearly values.
That hole appears, fairly clearly, the results of the truth that folks merely don’t like Trump and his total strategy — bragging, bullying and so on. — to the job. What higher technique to make folks concentrate on the a part of the Trump presidency they do like (the financial system) than by downplaying the half they do not like (Trump personally)?
To be clear: This may NEVER occur. Trump is just not able to the form of self-discipline it could require. And, even when he have been, different points would doubtless crop up that, as president, he and his advisers would really feel compelled to handle.
However, I suggest it to make this level: Trump’s largest hurdle to a second time period is his character and habits in workplace.
The Level: A much less divisive — and fewer irregular — Republican president, with this similar financial document by two-plus years of his time period, can be sitting fairly for reelection. Trump, as a result of he’s Trump, is not.
