To Beat Trump Biden Must Erode and Erase His False Image of Strength

In a time of chaos the strongman wins. That simple lesson from history is why Donald Trump may win re-election in November notwithstanding current polling. In fact, I’m convinced there is only one reliable way to stop Trump from triumphing yet again: by unmasking him as a complete and total wimp, a weakling. Elections are all about images. If Trump goes into election day 2020 looking like the strongest leader on the ballot he will win. If he looks like what he really is, the wimpiest wimp to ever crawl across the American political stage, he will lose. It’s as simple as that.
