Trump's strategy in 2020 will be to sling as much filth as possible and hope his base comes out

Trump’s strategy in 2020 will be to sling as much filth as possible and hope his base comes out in sufficient numbers. This is what he knows how to do.

Just last week, the President invited to the White House leading members of the far-right social-media crowd, including one “Carpe Donktum,” who recently made a nasty altered video of Joe Biden; Bill Mitchell, who ladles out the latest QAnon conspiracy theories; the oppo-research operative James O’Keefe III; and Ali Alexander, who, like the President’s own son, recently shared a tweet that called into question Kamala Harris’s racial background. A sterling bunch. At the meeting, Trump expressed the full knowledge that cyber-fuelled hatred and racism had helped him win the election. He honored the group with a White House invitation in the hopes that it will be there for him again in 2020. “The crap you think of is unbelievable!” he told them in bemused admiration. These were his people.

1. Right.

At some point we should get OUT of his mud, and run substantive campaigns.

2. This is his strategy every single day.

His mind only knows filth and corruption. There is no serotonin in Trump's addled brain.

3. So I skimmed the "I voted for you but..." posts on twitter,

and quite a few people who voted for him were disappointed and upset by his comments. I guess this is the stock-market faction of his base? I have no idea.

5. It's true

many of the country-club Republicans voted for the Orange Menace, mainly because they wanted a tax cut, but also because Hillary has been so severely demonized to them for decades.

However, there is a chance that they will be replaced by Trump base voters who sat out the 2016 election because they believed the polls that Hillary was going to win that time. They won't be sitting back this time around if they're still Trump fans.
