The person most capable of defeating Donald Trump is Donald Trump. If Democrats are smart, they will let him do the job.

President Trump thrives on outrage and resentment. He seethes with it, stirs it in others and mines it for his own political profit. His political project relies on driving Americans to their cultural and ideological corners. He is Pavlov. We are the dogs.

I guess it's a publicity stunt," Trump told reporters as he left the White House for North Carolina. "To be honest, I'm not looking to give them any credibility," he added. Former Rep. Joe Walsh (Ill.), former Rep. Mark Sanford (S.C.) and former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld have each announced campaigns against Trump.

All hail God Emperor Trump . Glory to his Trumpenriech. Song: Destroy by Worth Dying For.

Mr. Trump’s serial assaults on the decency and the decorum upon which civil society depends are enraging — and meant to be. It is only natural to respond to his every provocation with righteous indignation.

My advice to the Democratic nominee next year is: Donʼt play.

Wrestling is Mr. Trump’s preferred form of combat. But beating him will require jiu-jitsu, a different style of battle typically defined as the art of manipulating an opponent’s force against himself rather than confronting it with one’s own force.

Mr. Trump was elected to shake things up and challenge the political establishment. And to many of his core supporters, his incendiary dog whistles, bullhorn attacks and nonstop flouting of “political correctness” remain energizing symbols of authenticity.

AOC wants Republicans 'on the record' against impeaching Trump

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to bring an impeachment vote in Congress for Republicans to go on the record for or against impeaching President Trump. © Provided by MediaDC: Washington Newspaper Publishing Company, Inc. The freshman Democratic lawmaker made the challenge while speaking to reporters Tuesday on Capitol Hill. "I want to see every Republican go on the record and knowingly vote against impeachment of this president, knowing his corruption, having it on the record," Ocasio-Cortez said. "This is outrageous to protect the amount of lawlessness.

There is a strong and real case for the new nationalism. Don't let Trump destroy it. Like a lot of famous rich people, Trump is subject to many lawsuits. The problem is that these lawsuits aren't frivolous money-sniffing lotto tickets from the plaintiffs.

"( Trump ) wants to do many things, but none of his actions would affect us Do you think the United States can rip up the JCPOA (the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action nuclear deal)? Do you think we and our nation will let him do that?” Rouhani said in a speech at the University of Tehran.

But polling and focus groups reflect a growing unease among a small but potentially decisive group of voters who sided with Mr. Trump in 2016 but are increasingly turned off by the unremitting nastiness, the gratuitous squabbles and the endless chaos he sows.

Plenty of attention has been paid to the historic shift in suburban areas Mr. Trump narrowly carried in 2016 but that broke decisively with his party last fall. That revolt was led by college-educated white women, who overwhelmingly turned against Republican candidates.

But what should be of even greater concern to Mr. Trump is the potential erosion among the non-college-educated white women he is counting on as a core constituency. Those women gave Mr. Trump a 27-point margin over Hillary Clinton in 2016. Yet in a recent Fox News poll, Mr. Trump was beating former Vice President Joe Biden by just four points in that group.

Trump supporter says he was targeted in multiple car vandalism cases

Trump supporter says he was targeted in multiple car vandalism cases Within the last month, Walter Hillegass says his Toyota Rav 4 has been vandalized three different times. In each case, multiple tires were slashed and his tire cover destroyed. “It was clear this was a completely politically bias attack because my tire cover had a Trump sticker,” Hillegass said. During the third attack, surveillance cameras were rolling and caught the suspect in the act. Hillegass says he doesn’t recognize the man and has no idea why anyone would do something so spiteful. “If you want to disagree with somebody sit down at the table and talk about it,” Hillegass says. “Don’t destroy people’s property and don’t attack people.

If I were sitting in the Trump war room, this number, more than any other, would alarm me. He won the presidency by the slimmest of margins in three battleground states. With little place to grow, even a small erosion of support among these women could prove fatal to Mr. Trump’s chances. While they are inclined to many of his positions, the thing that is driving these voters away is Mr. Trump himself.

And one thing we can be sure of as the election approaches: Donald Trump is not going to change.

Given that Mr. Trump’s approval rating has been hovering around 40 percent throughout his presidency, his obvious and only strategy is to turn his dial further into the red. He will try to raise the stakes by painting the election as a choice between himself and a radical, left-wing apocalypse. He will bay about socialism, open borders and “deep state” corruption and relentlessly work to inflame and exploit racial and cultural divides.

But as Mr. Trump seeks to rev up his base, he also runs a significant risk of driving away a small but decisive cohort of voters he needs. His frenetic efforts to create a panic over the immigrant caravan in the days leading up to the 2018 midterms may have stoked his base, but it also generated a backlash that contributed to major losses for his party.

Trump says Pompeo not under consideration to replace Bolton

Trump says Pompeo not under consideration to replace Bolton President Trump on Thursday said he does not plan to make Secretary of State Mike Pompeo his national security adviser. © UPI Photo Trump says Pompeo not under consideration to replace Bolton The president told reporters as he left to attend a GOP House retreat in Baltimore that he spoke with Pompeo earlier in the day, and that the secretary of State "liked the idea of somebody [else] in there." "I think he is fantastic," Trump said of Pompeo. Reports circulated this week that Trump may consider appointing Pompeo to replace former national security adviser John Bolton, who he fired on Tuesday.

The Trump Administration has achieved more in the first 2 1/2 years of its existence than perhaps any administration in the history of our Country. We get ZERO media credit for what we have done, and are doing, but the people know, and that’s all that is important!

Today I will kill trump destroy his wall and kill myself (not in real life only in the game).

With everything on the line and nothing, to his mind, out of bounds, the same dynamic will be in play in 2020, and this creates an opportunity for Democrats — if their party’s message allows Trump defectors to comfortably cross that bridge.

There is a legion of arguments on moral, ethical and policy grounds for Mr. Trump’s defeat, and that’s leaving out the sheer incompetence. But the most effective question for Democrats to get voters to ask is simply whether the country can survive another four years like this.

Can we continue to wake each day to the tweets and tantrums, the nasty, often gratuitous fights and the ensuing turmoil that surrounds this president? Can we make progress on issues of concern to the way millions of people live their lives with a leader who looks for every opportunity to divide us for his own political purposes? And is a Trump freed of the burden of re-election really going to be less combative and more constructive in a second term? Um, no.

Each time Mr. Trump lashes out, as he will with increasing ferocity and frequency as the election approaches, these questions will gain more resonance. Every erratic escalation — every needless quarrel, firing or convulsive policy lurch — will provide additional evidence in the case for change.

Trump vows to protect 2nd Amendment after gun briefing

Trump vows to protect 2nd Amendment after gun briefing WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is vowing to fully protect the Second Amendment after huddling with top aides to discuss gun control measures. Trump insists "a lot of progress" was made on background checks "and various things having to do with guns" during Thursday's discussion. But he's also making clear that he's weary of angering gun proponents, suggesting Democrats' push for new gun control measures following a summer of mass shootings could be "a ploy" to take Americans' "guns away." Trump was briefed Thursday on a list of potential measures, including boosting mental health assistance and expediting executions for mass killers.

Trump lacks the traditional subtlety, but his actions are right in line with standard Republican tactics. We can’t pretend that all of our current chaos is the fault of one man. Before everyone jerks their knees into denial at that accusation, let ’s take a look at the warning signs of fascism, as posted at the United

Donald Trump would not be facing any of this so-called legal jeopardy that he’s facing today had he never run for the presidency. If you join this guy we’re gonna destroy you right along with our efforts to destroy him.” They want to isolate Donald Trump so that the only thing he has is his voters.

Mr. Trump’s impulse is always to create a binary choice, forcing Americans to retreat to tribe. He wants to define the battle around divisive cultural issues that will hem in his supporters, and it would be seductive for Democrats to chase every tweeted rabbit down the hole. The president would welcome a pitched battle over lines of race, ideology and culture.

But while Mr. Trump’s thermonuclear politics may rally both his base and Democrats who slumbered in 2016, it is the paralyzing disorder and anxiety his bilious behavior creates that is a distressing turnoff to voters at the margins who will make the difference.

To win, the Democrats will have turn Mr. Trump’s negative energy against him without embodying it themselves.
