Trump Should Avoid Hunter Biden, Talk About Economy And Keeping Citizens Safe

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

In case you missed it, these are the subjects for the next and final debate, rather than the original foreign policy focus

  • Coronavirus
  • National Security
  • Race
  • Leadership
  • American Families
  • Climate Change

Karl Rove says

With less than two weeks left before the 2020 presidential election, former White House deputy chief of staff Karl Rove said it would be more “effective” for the Trump campaign to focus on the economy as opposed to the Hunter Biden “scandal.”

Rove made the statement on “America’s Newsroom” on Wednesday shortly after Trump 2020 Campaign National Press Secretary Hogan Gidley appeared on the program and explained the campaign strategy to focus on Hunter Biden and his international business dealings to attack Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

“The president isn’t talking about Hunter Biden. What he is talking about is Joe Biden and what these emails now reveal is that Joe Biden is flatout corrupt,” Gidley said referencing the Hunter Biden emails reportedly revealing his foreign business dealings, including contacts in Ukraine and China.

“This was one of the big problems with Hillary Clinton back in 2016,” Gidley continued. “The American people knew about Clinton cash.”

Admittedly, that worked, did it not?

In response, Rove pointed to a Washington Post op-ed written by former White House chief speechwriter Marc Thiessen in which Thiessen argued that President Trump “needs to stop talking about Hunter Biden” and “start winning over reluctant voters.”

“He argues the focus ought to be on the economy and the big contrast between the policy prescriptions of President Trump and those of Joe Biden and frankly I’m in agreement with him,” Rove, a Fox News contributor, said.

On one hand, yeah. People need to know about the good news in the economy, and that Joe’s plans would be bad for the economy, jobs, and their wallets. How do they effect American families? Think about this: for all the Democrat caterwauling about Trump’s tax plan not helping the middle and lower classes, those making less than $400,000, Biden’s plan keeps the taxes exactly the same for those making under $400k, so, they must have been good, right? Trump could ask Joe why he wasted so much money on projects that were not shovel ready, on companies that went out of business, on unnecessary weatherization projects, and more, while Obama had Joe in charge of the 2009 Stimulus. He could ask Joe what exactly he knows about business, considering he’s been an elected official most of his life.

But, of course, this campaign has mostly been about personality rather than policies.

Lee Carter: Biden vs. Trump – at presidential debate both men must say these 4 words to voters

Thursday night is the last chance President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden have to make their case on the debate stage. And while the microphones can now be muted, there’s one message they must still get across: with me, you will be safe.

Here’s why those four words are so important and mean so much.

No matter where you sit on the political spectrum, you likely feel the same emotion right now: fear. And more than anything, we need to be reassured.

We need to know that it’s all going to be OK. That we can wake up after the election is decided, breathing a long-needed sigh of relief.

And so, for both Trump and Biden, the message must be the same. But what it means coming for each of them will be totally different. Let’s start with the president and then move on to the Democratic presidential nominee.

Carter goes through a list for both candidates. For Trump, it’s about telling people you’ll have freedom, jobs, money, Right to be armed, protecting freedom of speech, protection from overbearing government. For Joe, it’s all about Government being mommy and daddy.

And they’re both right. Trump should actually use tonight’s debate to discuss topics. He should focus on who’s policies keep people safe and prosperous better, that Joe wants government control of your life, that his climate change plans and everything else will increase people’s taxes and cost of living. That Trump has been working to spread peace in the Middle East in a way no one else did, that Biden emboldened the Iranian terrorist government. That Joe and the Dems stood back while their Antifa folks burned down black owned businesses and created mayhem which distracted from police reform, and how so many Dems want to simply defund the police. Compare and contrast. Will he? We’ll see.
