During Donald Trump’s latest interview with Sean Hannity, he was unable to answer the simple question of what his agenda was for the second term of his presidency. Four months away from Election Day in a race where polls have him down by as much as 14 points and Trump cannot say what he would do with another four years.
With no agenda and no message beyond repeats of his 2016 greatest hits – “build the wall,” “lock her/them up,” etc. – Trump is falling back on an old tactic that worked well for him four years ago. He’s relying on the politics of fear.

No less than 15 times on Saturday night, the president of the United States posted wanted posters on Twitter, endangering the lives of people who have yet to be charged with any crime. Trump can’t adequately handle a global pandemic, a plummeting unemployment rate, or massive civil unrest, but he can definitely use that unrest to stoke greater fear and divide the country for his own benefit.
Trump’s Wild West wanted posters were followed by a miniature horror movie featuring Democrats as the villains, determined to destroy cities and overrun them with crime and looting. If he can’t win over black voters, he’ll use them to convince white voters that their survival depends on another four years of a Donald Trump presidency.
It’s not a new tactic for Trump. After all, undocumented immigrants were drug dealers and rapists just four years ago. In the midst of such a turning point for our country, however, there could be no worse person leading the country than Donald Trump.
Twitter was quick to respond to Trump’s wild Saturday night Twitter binge. Read some of their comments below:
