Trump launches unprecedented reelection machine

Source: Politico

President Donald Trump is planning to roll out an unprecedented structure for his 2020 reelection, a streamlined organization that incorporates the Republican National Committee and the president’s campaign into a single entity.

Under the plan, which has been in the works for several weeks, the Trump reelection campaign and the RNC will merge their field and fundraising programs into a joint outfit dubbed Trump Victory. The two teams will also share office space rather than operate out of separate buildings, as has been custom.

“We are going to streamline this presidential campaign like no presidential campaign has been streamlined before,” said Chris Carr, a veteran party strategist who has been tapped to serve as political director on the Trump reelection effort.

Speaking to the departure from presidential campaign tradition, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel called it “the biggest, most efficient and unified campaign operation in American history.”

If Trump does make it that far, I think it's better to run against him than run against Kasich/Haley.

38. they've still got 1500 radio stations coordinated with kremlin trolling

gop won't go down that hard because 1500 radio stations are and have been polluting jury pools re trump vs 'deep state' for 3 years while liberals were listening to music

gop's going to be able to force a lot compromise because of it and then the same propaganda ops will be used to convince dems their politicians are spineless, don't care, same as the cons - and they'll stay home on election

works every time

Oh, and he's trying to hold off indictment for another 4 years. Presuming, of course, he doesn't make a plea deal to keep his ass out of jail and resign during 2019.

After he's held accountable , but his rally's are nothing more than conning people for campaign donations funds for his legal bills , and debt he has, not for th ere-election campaign like he claims.

12. With all that little Putin financing he should be able to streamline the cons

Combine all those Traitor Trump businesses with the GOP and White House. Add a little Putin campaign contribution through the NRA and we get another 4 years of Traitor Trump.

It's all about the money.....and he's got Kavanaugh to cover his huge ass when charges are brought. It's all good betraying your country for fun and profit. Just ask the Koch brothers how well that works.

Amid all the other forms of corruption Trump and his buddies seemed to be engaged in, I can't help but think they are so rotten they're likely stealing from each other as well. With all that money rolling in from donors, do you really think Trump is capable of not sticking his hand into the cookie jar?

I hope he is in jail to watch the RNC do its own thing, without him.

He still believes he will get out of all these investigations without a scratch...if that were to happen it would be a blow to justice in the USA.

This will be that, but on a much larger scale.

Trump is going to suck all the oxygen and money out of the room. He's that greedy, and both his lifestyle and grifting ways demand constant influx of cash to keep the con going.
