It seems that the Trump handlers want to try gloss over the virus and economic problems Trump has by focusing on the protests around the country?
Trump has NO handle of a pandemic that is killing thousand a day and dragging down the economy and business and he wants to try to sell the country is having protests that Joe Biden is responsible for???
It’s THAT bad for the GOPer’s , huh?
This isn’t 2016….
The Trump winning miracle has little chance of a second act….
President Donald Trump’s campaign has virtually disappeared from the airwaves as it undertakes “a review and fine-tuning of the campaign’s strategy” as an official put it after the replacement of campaign manager Brad Parscale.
With less than 100 days until Election Day, the Trump campaign spent virtually nothing on television or radio ads on Wednesday and Thursday, according to data from Advertising Analytics. And it has effectively nothing booked through August.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden’s campaign has spent $3.9 million over those two days and has another almost $6 million booked through the end of August.
When asked about the lack of spending, a Trump campaign official pointed to the decision earlier this month to demote Parscale and elevate deputy campaign manager Bill Stepien to fill that role.
“With the leadership change in the campaign, there’s understandably a review and fine-tuning of the campaign’s strategy. We’ll be back on the air shortly, even more forcefully exposing Joe Biden as a puppet of the radical left-wing,” the official told NBC News.
As part of a broader strategy to shift the public’s focus from to coronavirus to fears over crime and anarchy, the campaign has so far put most of its money behind a spot that attacks Biden over Democratic calls to “defund the police.” Advertising Analytics data shows the campaign has spent almost $17 million to run the spot on broadcast and national cable since the beginning of July.
The spot imagines a police department slashed by budget cuts that asks victims of serious violent crimes to leave a message and hear back from officers in five days….
Trump’s campaign will begin running ads Monday in a cluster of states ahead of the early voting period. The move represents a shift for the campaign, which for months has been spending heavily in a wide array of battlegrounds. Bill Stepien, Trump’s newly appointed campaign manager, has spent recent days reevaluating the advertising strategy as the president gears up for the final three months of the election.
Trump previewed the forthcoming offensive in a Friday afternoon tweet, writing: “We are doing a new ad campaign on Sleepy Joe Biden that will be out on Monday. He has been brought even further LEFT than Crazy Bernie Sanders ever thought possible.”
Trump advisers declined to specify which states the ads would be focused on, but there are several key battlegrounds at the front of the early voting calendar. Either in-person or mail-in voting will begin in Florida, Michigan, North Carolina and Pennsylvania by the end of September.
The commercials will also be backed by a national ad buy on cable and broadcast, Trump advisers said. Stepien used a Wednesday evening staff meeting to preview several upcoming spots.
The move comes at a pivotal moment for the president, who finds himself trailing Biden across the electoral map.
Stepien has been undertaking a broader review of the campaign’s operation, including its budgeting and hiring. There has been a focus on TV buying, which comprises a substantial portion of any presidential campaign’s overall spending.
“Everything on the campaign needs to be purpose driven and goal-oriented — that goes for the political operation, the communications operation, and most importantly ad buying,” Stepien said in a Thursday interview. “It would be malpractice if we didn’t reexamine that we are spending money in the right places on the right message.”
