Donald Trump’s Twitter feed just three days before the 2020 presidential elections reflects one thing: he’s losing badly in the polls and he’s terrified. His desperate attempts to paint his 77-year-old white male centrist opponent as a radical Marxist who will take away, among other things, Christmas, electricity, and cars are making him look more desperate than ever. On Saturday morning, he made another attempt to paint his opponent as awful and himself as winning, despite 225,000 Americans dead from COVID-19, reek of desperation.
Trump has pushed the idea that President Barack Obama, America’s beloved first black president, did nothing for people of color. He even has some black friends who will back him up on that, including Vernon Jones and Candace Owens. But the measure of how black voters feel about President Obama can only be expressed by black voters as a whole, and 92 percent of them approve of the work he did in office.
Trump’s desperate lies about his tax returns, returns he refuses to release and set the matter to rest, are a response to The New York Times stories about Trump’s tax returns, copies of which were leaked to the news outlet. Tax returns do not reflect how much a person paid in a single year but how much they owed, whether or not prepayments have already been made. Trump owed zero dollars in some years and $750 his first year in office.
His constant raving about Biden, most of which has been thoroughly debunked, are not going to change the image of Trump as a grifter and a racist. Barack Obama, The New York Times, and Joe Biden haven’t painted that picture of Trump, he’s done that himself.
