Trump sets hectic campaign pace as his party frets

68 Comments
By Brian KNOWLTON

President Donald Trump pushed on with a hectic series of rallies across the United States on Saturday, as he seeks to avert a potentially humiliating defeat at the ballot box in only 17 days.

Trump was storming through the battleground states of Michigan and Wisconsin before overnighting in Nevada, desperately seeking to make up lost ground against Democratic challenger Joe Biden, who was keeping a quieter schedule.

The frenetic pace set by the 74-year-old president -- and the fact that he has had to devote time to states like Georgia and Florida that he won in 2016 -- reflected the Republican Party's mounting concern, even as his aides sought to project confidence.

"President Trump's strategy is to work for the vote of the American people," his spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany said on Fox News.

"It's why he'll be in two states today, he'll have two rallies tomorrow, two more in Arizona on Monday, and he's going all-in."

Biden, after making several campaign stops Friday in Michigan, was keeping a low profile on Saturday in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware.

But he issued a statement to Wisconsin voters hours before Trump was to arrive there, focusing on a theme he has pursued relentlessly: Trump's mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic.

"His failed response to the pandemic has crushed Wisconsin’s economy," Biden said, noting that 150,000 state residents had lost jobs since Trump took office in 2016.

Trump himself is recovering from COVID-19, as are a few dozen other White House and campaign personnel, including McEnany, but she sought to impart a positive spin on the experience.

"He's been through COVID himself, he's going to talk directly to the American people on that debate stage about his experience," she said.

The final televised debate between the candidates -- and one of Trump's last opportunities to argue his case before a wide audience -- is set for this Thursday. More than 21 million Americans have already cast early votes.

Trump backed out of what was to have been the second debate after organizers announced a virtual format following his COVID-19 diagnosis. The candidates held rival town hall events instead, with Biden drawing more viewers.

McEnany said Trump would use the final debate to "talk about his great response to COVID."

It has been a tough case for Trump to make.

The virus has claimed more than 215,000 American lives -- a dismal toll that is the world's worst -- and the president has frequently mocked or flouted health experts' guidelines.

Biden, 77, emphasized that point in his statement.

"President Trump is knowingly downplaying the severity of the virus," he said. "At virtually every turn, he has panicked and tried to wish it away, rather than doing the hard work to get it under control."

As the election nears, it is the incumbent who appears to face steeper odds, with polls indicating a Democratic surge and a few Republican senators have openly expressed doubts about their party's leader.

Senator Ben Sasse warned fellow Nebraskans in a recent phone call that Republicans faced a "blood bath in the Senate" after Trump had bungled the pandemic response, alienated global allies and mistreated women.

Trump, characteristically punched back Saturday on Twitter against Sasse's "rather stupid and obnoxious ways".

Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas has also warned of a "Republican blood bath of Watergate proportions."

And even Trump said in Georgia that "maybe I'll have to leave the country" if Biden wins -- a joke remark, but striking from a president notoriously allergic to any talk of losing.

Democrats -- and many Americans -- mistrust polling since the shock defeat of presumed favorite Hillary Clinton in 2016, but surveys chart a tougher road for Trump now.

An average of national polls from the RealClearPolitics site shows Biden with a strong 9-point lead, and leading in key battleground states -- though by a narrower 4.5-point average.

On Saturday, thousands of people were expected to take part in rallies in Washington and elsewhere protesting against Trump and his recent nomination of conservative judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.

Trump has outworked Biden. He is winning Florida and Ohio at the moment. That is huge for Trump.

Trump will go down in history as the worst ever American president.

His anti-American backers in the US and around the globe are pleased at the damage, perhaps permanent, he's done to the republic.

A lasting stain on Trump, his fellow R's, his fellow 'elite' and his followers in general will be the Supreme Court justices he nominated making decisions further undermining the rights of individuals and allowing big corporations to have even greater control.

Trump is fighting for his political and legal life.

Many lawsuits are coming his way once he's out of office, and he'll not be protected by the presidency. It's easy to see why he's so desperate, right now, but he's going to lose and lose big.

And losing the WH will seem minor compared to what happens post presidency, when the IRS and justice system comes down hard on him, among the many legal problems coming his way.

He'll reap what he sowed with all the lies and reckless behavior while POTUS.

Makes you wonder was Trumps corona virus real, no records produced, a military hospital, doctors under gag orders. Maybe we should ask other corona virus sufferers if they think Trumps schedule is really attainable after only 3 days hospitalization. Trump is obese, probably has a heart condition , with over 215000 Americans dead, who probably had similar conditions, and we are lead to believe he is some sort of superman, give me a break.

Considering there've been some terrible presidents, it's quite an underachievement of intelligence and character to be outright the worst president ever, of which Trump clearly is.

Trump outdistances the disgraced with lies and gaslighting of the people who lapped up his con man gig. It isn't even close as to how he has been the worst president in American history, for America, and ultimately useless as the instigator for the true and first time majority lack of respect America is finding from her allies.

Yeah, Trump's going to blow his own trumpet and tell them all about how he, as "the Chosen One", was the only one who could do it and he's going to remind his mindlessly cheering audience how he kept his inauguration vow to protect the people and end (Obama's) "American carnage", not. But try as Trump will, after four years of mayhem most Americans have already had enough of his embarrassing shtick and have tuned out. Voters have now turned out by the millions to turn him out in November and in January turn him in (I pray).

Depends on whom you’re asking

His anti-American backers in the US and around the globe are pleased at the damage, perhaps permanent, he's done to the republic.

And yet, those Anti-Americans are endorsing Biden because they know given what we know now with his China connections want a President that’s compliant and capitulates.

A lasting stain on Trump, his fellow R's,

Not really, for once the Republicans are seen as to some degree taking a stand on Marxist radical policies and the dismantling of the US, so for their efforts on that they’ll be praised.

his fellow 'elite' and his followers in general will be the Supreme Court justices he nominated making decisions further undermining the rights of individuals and allowing big corporations to have even greater control

Yeah, it just sucks having a Constitutionalist and textualist on the bench, how awful! God save us from Democracy and the Constitution.

Finally a positive article about Trump, describing him as vigorous and even athletic as the author used words like frenetic and hectic. That’s who I want as president. Not someone dull and sleepy and always in the basement.

Honestly, I'll miss him if he loses. I want 4 more years of waking up and reading about what surprisingly absurd things he has said or done. Can't wait to hear him talk more about his great Covid-19 response over the next couple of weeks.

Back to reality, President Trump in 4 short years has brought unparalleled economic success to Americans of all race religion and creed, brought China to heel, orchestrated historic peace treaties in the Middle East and exploded leftist heads on a daily basis.

Haven't seen any temper tantrums or humiliation. Have seen a lot of people buy into the cult of the man, defending his violent rhetoric, serial lying, racism, voter suppression and catastrophic "handling" of the pandemic.

He has reneged on Iran, the Paris Climate accords, he has flip flopped on every single issue and preened and pouted over perceived slights and genuine criticism.

His criminal activities could see him in legal troubles, after he leaves the WH in January. No wonder he's tweeting sickening bigotry and crazy theories. He's got nothing to lose in securing a second term.

This was a surprise, but I’d say Trump isn’t as entertaining as he was. Even the trash he retweets on Twitter isn’t as funny as it was. The ‘Biden for Resident’ trash wasn’t of the same quality as the old CNN memes, hitting Hillary with a golf ball and battling mini Mike/Darth Vader. His gags on stage and in debates have become a bit stale too and not a patch on knob jokes or lying about Tweeting about non-existent sex tapes. He can’t do the shock value material about throwing out all illegal immigrants as he failed to do it.

He’s actually become a bit boring and predictable.

Stop treating him like a baby. The buck stops at the top.

The blame China line is used to deflect from his failure. Some other leaders around the world dealt with Covid well and saw their stock rise as a result. Ardern in NZ absolutely thrashed the opposition based largely on her response to it.

The CCP clearly has a lot to answer for but you do see how transparent the ‘blame China’ line is, don’t you?

Look at Trump’s approval rating on Covid and how it sunk. The majority of the electorate are not buying it. Nor should they.

We expect US GHG emissions in 2020 will be 10%–11% lower than 2019. Restricted travel mobility has impacted the transport sector, which is responsible for the largest share of GHG nationwide, decreasing the consumption of motor gasoline by 24% in the second quarter of 2020 compared to 2019, year-over-year.

Those ‘top ten environmental decisions’ that are according to you causing Californians to pack up and leave now all happened between the 1800s and the middle of the last century. More recent environmental rulings have tried to reverse their effects or at the least preserve what environment is left. Trump’s ‘profit at and price and st^ff the environment’ policies are threaten to further damage an already damaged environment.

It is obvious the President is not loved by many. I get it. He is hard to like, given his personality and demeanour.

I have yet to find many who dispute his accomplishments though. Peace in the Middle East, elimination of ISIS, trade deals like USMCA, achieving energy independence, record high employment (especially for those minorities he supposedly hates), criminal justice reform, just off the top of my head. Ex-VP Biden has had more than 4 decades in Washington, access to power at the highest levels, and has nowhere near the list of accomplishments. Not to mention his health is actually and obviously declining.

Repubs, if Biden wins it won't be so bad. He's a moderate, nothing like the far left in any way. He doesn't support the New Green Deal, defunding the police, eliminating the filibuster, etc. I doubt he will pack the courts.

Peace in the Middle East,

Not for the Palestinian people who have had their culture and freedoms eroded even further over the last 4 years.

elimination of ISIS,

ISIS have not been eliminated. It is still recruiting in places like Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq.

Three years since Iraq declared victory over IS, sleeper cells continue to stage attacks across the country’s north. Meanwhile, the U.S.-led coalition has been carrying out a planned drawdown this year as Iraqi security forces take the lead in combat and air raids.

The Iraqi PM has said:

“In the end, we will still need cooperation and assistance at levels that today might not require direct and military support, and support on the ground,” al-Kadhimi said. He said the cooperation “will reflect the changing nature of terrorism’s threat,” including continued training and weapons support.

I wouldn't mind if Joe Biden (2008 version) was running and won. However, the current version, in the current political climate, is the problem. He is obviously not the man he once was. He has been influenced by the far left elements of his party and is not in control of either himself or his party.

ISIS is all but dead. There is no more Caliphate, as there was under the previous president (who referred to them as Junior Varsity). The Palestinians had numerous chances to make peace and refused. Now they are no longer a player. They irritated their Islamic brethren to the point that peace with Israel is preferable to yet more years with the kleptocracy in Gaza,

Notice you didn't dispute any of the genuine economic progress under President Trump... guess you concede those points thern.

Influenced, yes. That’s part of being a good leader. But as someone left of center, he is almost exactly in line with myself, not the far left (whom I decry).

and is not in control of either himself or his party.

Heh, your guys sleepy joe narrative fell apart when Biden whooped trump at the debate. And your assertion that the leader of the party isn’t in control of the party is projection due to your guy being abandoned by so many of his party.
