During Donald Trump’s Fox News Sunday interview with Chris Wallace, he was asked what he believes his legacy as president will be. Trump then went on a long rant about how unfairly he’s been treated, which is apparently what Trump wants to leave behind: his grievances, his petulance, and his excuses. He continued on those themes, as well as lots of the fear-mongering that makes up his political campaign strategy, on Twitter after the full interview aired.
That interview did not do Trump any favors at a time when he is losing by massive double digit percentages to Joe Biden and he knows it. His weak attempts to revive the Mexican immigrants/Muslims/Socialists fears in 2016 under the names radicals/anarchists/looters rhetoric in 2020 are a desperation move. Joe Biden is no more a radical than the average 77-year-old white men in America who has served in Congress since the 1970s. Trump knows this, and is futilely seeking some inroad with the voters who are quickly turning from him: suburban women, white women as a whole, moderate voters, and independents.
There is nothing scarier to the average American right now than a global pandemic that has killed more than 143,000 Americans, the highest unemployment rate since 1929, the threat of millions of Americans being left homeless due to the job market and ability of workers to stay employed safely, and the reasons behind the civil unrest across the country. The person most responsible for addressing those issues is President Donald Trump, but he’s too focused on how “unfairly” he’s been treated to deal with it.
Twitter is so over Trump’s whining and fear-mongering. Read some of their comments below:
