Trump Turns Attention Toward Election

Trump Turns Attention Toward Election
  • President Trump is traveling as much as he can to speak to voters. 
  • Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee, has spent most of his time at home.
  • Trump-backed candidate Sen. Randy Feenstra beat long-time GOP Rep. Steve King in the Iowa Congressional primary.
  • Aside from keeping the White House, Trump’s party is trying to keep the Senate from flipping.

(NewsReady.com) – President Donald Trump has had to deal with what seems like an unprecedented number of crises in an election year. First, there was that whole global pandemic thing. Then, there were the revelations about his predecessors’ apparent abuse of the FBI and executive branch to work against him. Those two were bad enough, but 2020 is like the gift that keeps on giving.

In late May, riots broke out across the US. Businesses were destroyed and police officers were injured after a now-fired Minneapolis, Minnesota police officer killed George Floyd, a black man. As the president grapples with how to deal with all of that, he still has a campaign to run and he’s trying to get as many Republicans elected at the local level as possible. So, over the last couple of weeks, he’s spent time endorsing candidates.

Endorsement From The Commander-in-Chief

According to Trump 2020 Campaign Manager Brad Parscale, the candidates Trump has endorsed for special elections and primaries have an undefeated record.

In addition to all of the House candidates, the president’s throwing his weight behind Tommy Tuberville. He’s running against Trump’s former Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, who the commander-in-chief believes is to blame for the long, drawn-out Russia investigation.

The president wants to help people who he knows are going to be on his team; Sessions isn’t one of them.

Presidential Campaign

Even though Trump is taking time to help Republicans win, he hasn’t forgotten about his own campaign. Currently, the president is looking forward to the Republican National Convention (RNC) in August.

He’s also working to bring the economy back to its former glory after the COVID-19 pandemic. Trump knows he’s the only person who can make it great again. So far, it seems to be working for his campaign. President Trump is leading Joe Biden in Pennsylvania, Arizona, and he’s tied in Wisconsin. All three of these are important in November and it looks like he might sweep them again.

Of course, the only way the president wins again is if the right gets behind him and shows up to vote.
