At this point, President Donald Trump’s re-election strategy seems to hinge on spouting off his half-baked conspiracy theories to as many people as possible and hoping for the best. At a Thursday rally in Greenville, North Carolina, the president did just that, claiming — as summarized on Twitter — that “Joe Biden and the Democrat Socialists will kill your jobs, dismantle your police departments, dissolve your borders, release criminal aliens, raise your taxes, confiscate your guns, end fracking, destroy your suburbs, and drive God from the public square.” Every single one of these claims — every single one — is a brazen misrepresentation of reality.

In short — no, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden won’t “kill your jobs.” Actually, he wants to improve job opportunities across the nation. Meanwhile, to suggest that Biden wants to “dismantle your police departments” and “dissolve your borders” is just laughable nonsense that has little relationship to basic reality. Similarly, under no major Democratic plan is there any idea to “release criminal aliens” in some kind of subversion of the law and basic concerns about public safety. Every criminal will continue to serve the sentences handed down by the judicial system — Democrats simply don’t want to compel local authorities to hand immigrants who are among those criminals over to federal authorities after their sentences are complete. There’s no subversion of the due process of law with this rebuttal of the feds in place. Criminals still serve their sentences.

Going on — Biden has pledged not to raise taxes on Americans earning under $400,000 a year, he has no plan to forcibly confiscate assault weapons on any systematic scale, his campaign does not support ending fracking cold turkey, and he will not “destroy the suburbs” if elected. The idea underlying that last claim is that Democrats will essentially do away with single-family home zoning, which is false. As for the idea that Democrats will “drive God from the public square” — Joe Biden is an openly practicing Catholic.

On Thursday afternoon, Trump also complained about journalist Steve Scully, who was indefinitely suspended from C-SPAN this week after admitting to lying that a hacker was responsible for a mildly anti-Trump tweet that went out from his account in the days before he was set to moderate the now-cancelled second presidential debate. Trump also petulantly complained about an NBC town hall that he was set to participate in on Thursday night.

Does Trump ever stop complaining?
