This election Donald J Trump (R) is the end all and be all focus of the 2020 Presidential Election, just as he was in 2018. Yesterday, he sparred with former Vice-President Joe Biden (D-PA) during their mutual visits to the Hawkeye State. Biden started the engagement by releasing his speech in the morning to media sources https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/11/politics/joe-biden-iowa-remarks/index.html. In the speech, the most touted line is, “I believe Trump is an existential threat to America.”
In response, Trump questioned Biden’s capacity for office saying, “I think he’s the weakest mentally and I like running against people that are weak mentally … The other ones have much more energy.
We contend, our point we made before, this is No Country for Old Men. The squabble sounds like two neighbors arguing in their backyards about mowing the grass around the trees that separate them. We hope the election for the highest office in the land, doesn’t come down to being thought of a battle between two mental midgets. Granted, Trump did carry the vote of the less educated.
This is not to say the situation of the 2020 campaign will change much, it will remain all about Trump and America’s love/hate relationship with him or people love to hate feelings toward him.
To this end, we are adopting the hashtag #Trumpbait, which will likely be the measure of the impact a specific policy position or political point makes and whether it results in a tweet from Trump. Its only natural.
So, the 2019-20 political standard of whether or not something in the Presidential election has weighed is it Trump tweets about it.
