If Trump wants to take credit for an economic boom after a decade of recovery from the Great Recession, then he must also own this collapse, thanks to his administration’ s mismanagement of the pandemic But he has since failed to deliver for working Americans. Now the wheels are coming off .

Before President Trump returned to the White House from Walter Reed, doctors warned that the powerful steroids he'd been administered could have a significant effect on a patient's behavior. "We tell family members, especially for our older patients," Dr. Negin Hajizadeh, critical care physician at Northwell Health, told the New York Times, "this may cause changes in eating habits and, in extreme cases, mania and impaired decision-making."

Well, we don't know about any changes in Donald Trump's eating habits, but, steroid-related or not, we've certainly seen signs of impaired decision-making. For whatever reason, Trump's been making a lot of dumb moves lately which are hurting, not helping, his chances for reelection.

" The wheels are off the wagon . It' s time to put grandpa in an assisted-living facility because he cannot care for himself." President Donald Trump speaks during a news conference at the Lotte New York Palace hotel during the United Nations General Assembly, Sept.

When President Donald Trump traveled to Saudi Arabia, he danced with a sword and sipped coffee with the king, but made not a mention of the country' s He went further adding that the election of Trump articulated the resentment many Americans felt towards an “avalanche of political correctness”.

It started, once he got home from the hospital. The first thing he did was refuse to participate in an Oct. 15 debate with Joe Biden - after the Presidential Debate Commission, not knowing when Trump might be able to safely reappear in public, had wisely decided to make it an online exchange. He wouldn't "waste his time" with an online debate, Trump told Fox News. Whereupon Biden scheduled a town hall on ABC, and Trump countered by scheduling his own town hall on NBC the same night at the same time.

It was a dumb decision, that only helped Biden. According to Nielsen, the first presidential debate on Sept. 29 attracted 73.1 million viewers. The ABC/NBC town halls attracted a combined audience of only 27.5 million viewers - of which Biden, on ABC alone, gained 14 million viewers; and Trump, with three channels - NBC, MSNBC and CNBC - only 13.5 million. Biden beat Trump where it hurts the most: in TV ratings. And who made that dumb decision? Trump himself.

Second disaster. The day after Trump returned to the White House, without consulting congressional Democrats or Republicans, or his own Treasury secretary, Trump cancelled negotiations for a second stimulus package. Two days later, pummeled by opposition from both Republicans and Democrats in Congress, as well as millions of American workers and small businesses who were counting on additional federal help to stay afloat in the age of COVID-19, Trump flip-flopped. But the damage was already done. Trump came across either as someone who didn't know what he was doing or didn't care. Bottom line: Trump destroyed any chance of a second stimulus bill and the economic boost it might have given his campaign. Who made that dumb decision? Trump himself.

Trump compounded that faux-pas by demanding that Republican Senators ignore what the majority of Americans wanted and rush to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court before Nov. 3. In so doing, Trump only energized the Democratic base and further alienated suburban women because of Barrett's extreme views on abortion and health care. Another dumb decision made by Trump himself.

Finally, after forcing White House doctors to give him a clean bill of health, Trump's embarked on a blizzard of daily campaign rallies which even some of his closet campaign advisers privately admit are a total waste of time. He does nothing but throw red-meat to his supporters, who were going to vote for him anyway. There's no outreach to independents or undecided voters. No message of plans for a second term. Not even Fox News carries Trump's rallies anymore, because they are "full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." Except, of course, as superspreader events, exposing thousands of supporters to the risk of coronavirus: Trump's dumbest, and most dangerous, decision of all.

With only two weeks to go, the wheels are coming off Trump's campaign wagon. And all of his problems are self-inflicted.
