President Trump can excel in the last debate if his behavior is different than it was in his first debate – that of a manner-less, impulsive, petulant billionaire. Tomorrow night, Mr. Trump needs to reel that back and show voters that he is an objective leader.
It’s funny how the media is slanting the Commission’s decision to mute the debaters as a negative for Trump. Instead, it’s likely to benefit the president. He won’t be able to (1) say impulsive things or (2) interrupt Biden while Biden potentially puts his foot in his mouth. The muting also may slow Mr. Trump and give him enough time to gather his thoughts before he blurts out whatever is in the frontal lobe of his brain.
The reality is that Mr. Trump’s chance for victory has always rested on him. Trump has been his own biggest impediment by not focusing on his many accomplishments, including being America’s jobs creator (especially with minorities), Israel’s best friend, and the staunch defender of America’s police.
If the President acts like the measured decision-maker that he has proven to be, it should be enough to win the election.
