On just about any possible debate topic, Trump has a record he can brag about. And Biden has a record, or a position, which makes him vulnerable.
So no matter what the subject matter, it seems to me President Trump needs to, in order, 1) talk about the accomplishments of his first term, then 2) criticize the Biden position, and 3), in summation, explain why his election will produce a better outcome for the large majority of the American people.
When he debated Clinton four years ago, Donald Trump was a novice, untested in politics and government. A lot of people, myself included, didn’t know what to make of him. He’s learned a lot, and accomplished a lot. He should talk about what he’s learned, and how it has made him a better President.
A presidential debate is a joint, televised job interview. And when you’re hiring someone for a big job, you value experience, and past success.
That’s why Trump is not going to get fired.
On election night I’ll watch Fox, but I’ll be recording the other networks, so I can watch them react to Trump’s victory. It will be an extreme dose of schadenfreude. There will be horror, and rage, and tears. All joyful to behold.
I’m confident in large part because of the shy Trump voters. They don’t want to admit they’re voting for Trump. They don’t like Trump. They can’t stand Trump. And they would never consider admitting they support him to a pollster. They may not admit it to their own family.
But voting for Trump is in their own self interest, and that’s what they’ll do.
Donald Trump isn’t the man you want your son to be, and he sure as hell isn’t the kind you’d want to marry your daughter. He’s no moral paragon, he’s rather the opposite.
He’s an anti-politician, who speaks the plain truth. In 2016 he barely beat the most disliked candidate in history. On Nov. 3rd he’ll beat the worst candidate. He needs all the help that he can get.
There will never be another one like him.
