I mean the guyt only thinks about HIMSELF….
And ceratinly NOT about his adopted party lawmakers….
He’s playing the Republican voters that are overwhelemingly supporting him right now….
And he HAS to be sacred of a Pelosi led US House and an outside chance of a Schumer led US Senate also…..
Trump has increasingly cautioned his party against allowing the House, and even the Senate, to fall into Democratic control, voicing fears about his certain impeachment if that happens.
“We have to keep the House because if we listen to Maxine Waters, she’s going around saying, ‘We will impeach him,’” Trump said at a recent rally in Michigan, referring to the Democratic congresswoman from California.
“We gotta go out and we gotta fight like hell and we gotta win the House and we gotta win the Senate,” he added.
One person who has worked on strategy with the president’s team told POLITICO that the midterms pose more risk to Trump than his many outstanding legal quandaries, including special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
“I think where there are plenty of Americans who are sympathetic [to Mueller’s investigation], there are also plenty of Americans who will think this is just a witch hunt,” the person said, using a favorite phrase of Trump’s. “This is not a legal problem for the president. … It may be a legal problem for other members in his orbit. But it’s not a legal problem for the president. Never has been.
“It’s always been about a potential impeachment.”
Trump appears to believe victory in the November midterms depends on turning the contests into a referendum on his leadership, rather than risking a district-by-district slog over conventional messaging about the Republican tax overhaul and the upbeat economy….
Congrats Democrats. Alaska Governor Bill Walker will pull a Bernie Sanders and run in the Democrat primary, in addition to running as an Independent.
I actually did the post about Trump and the 2018 midterm ‘it’s about me’ thing right hete…
