After his ratings flop acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention, Joe Biden is now watching from his basement as Donald Trump lays out his second-term agenda.
Scott McKay, writing at The American Spectator, outlines Trump’s strategy, and makes note that Biden has a “100 percent propensity to vaporize as a presidential candidate” throughout history. He writes (abridged):
Sunday afternoon, the Trump campaign put out a press release containing bullet points of the second-term agenda he’ll run on
It’s been said repeatedly that Trump can’t just wait around for Joe Biden to implode — though the chances aren’t terrible that Biden will do just that, given his 100 percent propensity to vaporize as a presidential candidate in the past and his current suspect capacity with respect to what’s inside his cranium.
Trump needs something to run on beyond funny tweets and the fact he’s neither Antifa nor Bill de Blasio.
Americans don’t want to vote for the Hard-Left despite what the legacy media might have you believe, and it’s pretty clear they don’t really want to vote for Biden either.
President Trump’s boundless optimism and certainty in America’s greatness is reflected in his second-term goals and stands in stark contrast to the gloomy vision of America projected by Joe Biden and Democrats.
-For example, under “JOBS,” Trump says he wants to create 10 million new jobs in the first 10 months of his second term.
There’s a section on ending America’s reliance on China, something that needed to be in the agenda given that Trump will surely make Biden’s cozy/corrupt relationship with the Chinese Communist Party a key issue in the campaign.
It’s a law-and-order message in a time of political chaos, and it’s an open appeal to middle-class people of color who bristle at the idea they’re obligated to endorse the radical politics of the street.
Properly articulated, this agenda could pull a political landslide and even grow some coattails. But Trump is going to want to resist the temptation to dunk on Biden in every news cycle, because an agenda like this can speak for itself and win.
