Trump’s Weaknesses Get Exposed
Instead of talking about Trump’s radical language and what he tries to pass off as policy, let’s focus on something else. The catnip that gets the media’s attention is Trump’s inflammatory statements, but he makes those statements for media attention. What isn’t discussed enough is Donald Trump himself and his performance on the campaign trail.
The Trump campaign is trying to put their candidate on the campaign trail more, and what the increased visibility has done is highlight that the 2024 version of Donald Trump is not the same as the guy who launched his first campaign in 2015.
Trump Gets The City And State That He Is In Wrong
Trump is trying to visit the early states of Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada more, but what happened in Iowa over the weekend was revealing.
“There’s no way Iowa is voting against Trump,” he said, noting the economic benefits to farm states from the tariffs his administration imposed on China.
And yet, when Trump took the stage he gave a hearty hello to a city more than 80 miles north, and over the South Dakota state line. “Hello to a place where we’ve done very well, Sioux Falls. Thank you very much,” he said, before correcting himself several minutes later.
Joe Biden can fly around the world and always know where he is, but Trump can’t go from Nevada to Iowa, and do the same. Also, it isn’t like Trump confused places in Iowa and Nevada. He brought up a city and state that he had not been in.
