Yeah... his base is somehow going to double despite him being the architect of their lost access to medicine.
I don't care how many Muslims or North Koreans he bombs, once his base starts losing their children, spouses, and parents because of his budget cuts, they'll either stay home during the election or cast a protest vote.
You can't count on your constituents to hate so much they forget you are killing their family.
“It does look like a graveyard, says Slawson, who’s president of the Local 506 Union. “That’s the story of a lot of Erie. When you strip better than 30,000 jobs out of an area, this is what happens.” His union represents around 3,000 workers now, but the calls that come into his office are often from people whose jobs have disappeared.
Decades of decline in American manufacturing have seen a 1950s powerhouse gradually eroded to a shell of its former self in the present day. But this isn’t merely a story of economics, this is a story of the human impact, the emotional toll that hits a community which has lost the means to provide for its people.

That's Trump's key to victory in 2020. Bringing some kind of living wage jobs to the Great Lakes States he pulled from the Democrats.
'We don't want other leaders and other countries laughing at us any more. And they won't be. They won't be,' Trump declared. 'I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris.'

As I've said about and to Democrats in thread after thread, they're spending so much time "Trump bashing" that it's:
1.) Distracting them from finding a viable Democratic candidate.
2.) Building American sympathy for the Trump Administration/Family.
3.) Making the Democratic Party look totally dysfunctional.
4.) Scaring away any intelligent Democrat candidates.
5.) Stifling their ability to be creative..to generate a common-sense platform that would appeal to most Americans.
