Trump Privately Tells Confidants That ‘Socialism’ Won’t Be ‘So Easy’ to Beat in 2020

Trump Privately Tells Confidants That ‘Socialism’ Won’t Be ‘So Easy’ to Beat in 2020 As he campaigns for reelection, Donald Trump and his team have made trashing the “socialists or communists” in the 2020 Democratic presidential field a cornerstone of their messaging. In private, however, the president often strikes a different, more nuanced tone.

The 2020 Democratic Party presidential debates have taken place among candidates in the campaign for the Democratic Party's nomination for the president of the United States in the 2020 presidential

President Trump is starting to give signs of how he will run for re-election, attempting to invert the attack on him as an extremist by painting Democrats as The denunciation of socialism and the attempt to tie the philosophy to Democrats is Trump 's and his campaign 's attempt to invert the argument that he

While some may be anticipating sparks to fly between Democratic candidates onstage, the Trump campaign plans to literally fly its counter messaging in the air above Houston ahead of Thursday's debate.

President Donald Trump's campaign intends to counter-program the Democratic primary debate hosted by ABC News and Univision with an ad blitz that includes two full-page newspaper ads and flying a massive banner in the air that blasts socialism just before candidates take the stage.

"Socialism will kill Houston's economy!" the ad reads, along with a number to text, according to a rendering provided to ABC News by a Trump campaign official.

Trump says he won't debate primary opponents

Trump says he won't debate primary opponents President Trump on Monday indicated he would not be willing to debate the Republicans seeking to run against him in a primary for the party's 2020 nomination. © Getty Trump says he won't debate primary opponents "They're all at less than 1 percent. 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.

Trump used it repeatedly in November as he campaigned for Republican candidates and its inclusion at the State of the Union address suggests he'll be bringing it back as the 2020 campaign ramps up. Here are some of the ways Trump has used the specter of socialism , including about Venezuela, as

Trump ’s campaign issued a statement after the debate saying it was “the best argument for President Trump ’s re-election and should really be counted as an in-kind contribution” to his campaign . “The Democrats proposed a radical government takeover of American society that would demolish the

The campaign is spending around $7,500 for the flight and production of the ad, which is scheduled to fly from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. local time -- an hour before Democrats are set to square-off in their first one-night debate this cycle.

This isn't the first time the campaign utilized the sky to spread its message. Over Labor Day, the president's reelection campaign targeted beaches in key swing states with airborne banners.

"Every single Democrat candidate has job killing, economy crushing policies that won't work for America. Team Trump is here to remind them and let everyone in Houston know what a complete disaster Democrats are for America," Erin Perrine, deputy communications director, told ABC News in a statement on Wednesday.

Business Insider to host GOP debate with Trump challengers

Business Insider to host GOP debate with Trump challengers Business Insider announced Tuesday it will host a debate featuring candidates who have announced GOP presidential primary challenges to President Trump. Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) and former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld (R) are slated to appear in the Sept. 24 debate, while former Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) has also been invited. The debate will be held as part of Business Insider Today, a daily online news show from the publication on Facebook's video on demand service. "President Trump was invited to participate but has not responded," Business Insider said in a press release Tuesday afternoon announcing the event.

President Trump hadn’t had much success dividing Democrats until he found a word that would provoke very different responses from different members of the party during his State of the Union address: socialism .

But as Donald Trump ’s presidency stretches into its second year, democratic socialism has become a significant force in Democratic politics. There is little distinction made between the terms “democratic socialism ” and “ socialism ” in the group’s literature.

Painting Democrats as socialists is routine for the president's reelection team, which has argued the entire opposition field is radical leftists. However, Thursday's debate will feature a range of hopefuls from the more moderate Sen. Amy Klobuchar to the more progressive Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.

The flyover ads ahead of Thursday's debate are in line with a campaign that's reveled in trolling opponents through not only advertising but merchandise. Amid accusations that Trump altered a National Hurricane Center map with a Sharpie to show Dorian could have hit Alabama, the campaign quickly jumped at the chance to raise funds by selling its own black markers.

This campaign season has come full circle. Trump initially answered, “security, security, security,” but then struggled to name other core functions. This is a man running for president who, if he secures the GOP nomination, will debate Hillary Clinton in the fall over the fundamental role of the

The campaign also will take out two full-page print ads targeting Warren, former Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro. Two of the ads, which will run in Houston and in Castro's hometown of San Antonio, accuse the Democrats of killing jobs and specifically attack Castro for "obstructing the president."

"Donate to San Antonio's deplorables and join the prestigious list of those who stand tall for America," one ad is expected to read.

The ad also challenges the Democratic candidates on health care, slamming Medicare-for-all proposals.

At Trump's rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina, on Monday, he leaned into attacking Democrats' health care plans, arguing that his potential 2020 rivals want to strip millions of Americans of their private insurance while giving undocumented immigrants "free health care." The president promised he would have a better plan. The president offered no specifics.
