What is Trump running on in 2020?
« on: March 26, 2019, 06:52:51 PM »
A little on the flip side, what’s Trump got he can work with?

First off, the economy.  Any reasonabley competent person can see the economy is beyond good, arguably the best in a generation. Real wages going up, lowest black and hispanic unemployment, record low unemployment in general, more women working than ever before, GDP is pretty solid despite the drag of rising interest rates and the rollback of quantitative easing sucking up capital. If it’s the economy, stupid, then this is a big stick to swing - assuming it lasts another 18 months.

Related, capitalism. Trump will run on this as hard as democrats run as the socialist party. It’s a winner for Trump.

Security. ISIS is gone, it’s official. He can make hay all day about border security and Democrats resisting it. North Korea ain’t exactly a success but there’s a real chance for progress that hasn’t been since the end of the war. Related, strengthing ties with Israel, peeling off the traditional jewish Democrat voters as the left enables anti-semitism.

Fake news. This is a hammer Democrats and the media gave him and have now turned into Mjolnir, the ultimate war hammer. Trump and his allies can now dismiss any negative story as fake news. I find it mind blowing the left has backed themselves into this corner. The Russian collusion hoax will be the gift that keeps giving.

Supreme Court nominations. I believe this was a significant factor last time and will be again but it can cut both ways. If Democrats are demoralized as they seem, this could put him in a good spot.

Not that he needs it but what else could put Trump back in the white House?

The economy remains a winner for 2020 so far.

Quote
The U.S. created 196,000 new jobs last month after a swoon in February, an encouraging gain that hints growth in the economy is ready for a revival.

Unemployment remains at 3.8% which means Trump can claim the lowest average unemployment of any president in history. Unemployment rates among minorities are at all time record lows.

Quote
The increase in pay in the past 12 months slowed to 3.2% from 3.4%. Still, wages are rising near the fastest pace in a decade. Most economists think yearly pay will soon move closer to the 4% mark, underscoring just how tight the labor market is.

How do you compete with that? The Democrat media complex is trying some fun with ratios around race to stoke racial animosity but it’s hard to tell someone that’s gotten better paying jobs, ones that literally impact their lives personally, that it’s an illusion and not working for them.

I’m not sure how touting the system of Venezuela is going to work against this, should be interesting to see that.

While it's true that all that's required for this to sell is for voters to believe it, I wouldn't suggest you believe it personally. I think unemployment figures have been generally untrustworthy for some years.

Touting the system of Venezuela is, as you say, a losing strategy.

Touting the system of Scandinavia, which is what people are actually doing and you obtusely ignore, might not be. Guess we'll find out.

I think the rally cry, “let’s be like Finland” is a great idea. Especially in an environment like we currently have.

LOL.

Guess you don't know much about Finland, do you?

Well, considering how Trump was hammered for allegedly wanting to bring more Norwegians into the country, I can certainly see one way it could be spun.

Lol. Fair enough my friend. This argument was coming around to how each country's population lives and the different way they go about that. Not about how many Norwegians versus Mexicans were allowed in.
