Former President Donald J. Trump is champing at the bit to push his bid for another presidential run, but Republicans are shaking in their boots as an early announcement they believe would jeopardize the party’s fortune in the mid-term election.
At the same time, some would like to see the former president disappear from the political scene as another run and win by him would spell weeping and mourning and gnashing of teeth for the RINO as Trump often tend to term party members who do not support his agenda.
On the other hand, there is no other politician the Democrats fear than Donald Trump, and rightly so.
The fact is Biden won the election last year with a popular vote majority of seven million and an electoral college advantage of 306 to 232.
But a detailed look at the statistics revealed that Biden has little to brag about, for Trump could easily have won the election if he had maintained a hold on a mere 43,000 votes in Arizona, Georgia, and Wisconsin.
Several Republican senators reportedly told The Hill that they don’t want to see Trump return as the party’s front-man.
“I think we’re better off when he’s not part of any story,” a Republican senator said according to the report.
“He’s a clinical narcissist. He threw away the election in the debate with Biden and he threw away the Senate out of spite,” the lawmaker added.
“The 2022 election ought to be about the Biden administration and its rolling disasters so anything that would detract from the public being focused on what Democratic governance is doing to this country would be ill-advised,” Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), a Trump ally said in the report.
Meanwhile, Trump’s golf buddy Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), continues to argue that Trump is the Republican best positioned to win back the White House for the GOP.
“I think he was a good president on the things I care about,” he said. “He’s going to have to deal with the problems in 2020 but, yeah, I think he’d be the most viable candidate right now,” said Lindsey.
Notwithstanding, Trump continues to do his stump speeches around the country which many view as not only testing the waters to see the strength of his support but, more importantly, to win contribution and influence more people.
In his recent outing in Iowa, he told a crowd of cheering supporters that “we’re going to take America back.” He charged that the Democrats are leading the country to the “brink of ruin.”
Trump also continued with his “stop the steal” mantra maintaining his gripe that the 2020 presidential election was rigged and urged Republicans to get the vote out for the 2022 midterms, in which the GOP is expected to win back control of the House and Senate.
“We must send the radical left a message they will never forget,” he said.
The fact of the matter, right now, the Democrats do not know their heads from a hole in the ground as Sens. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) continue to stranglehold the party’s agenda.
Many pundits are now beginning to condemn the Democratic Party’s presidency to a one-term win a la Jimmy Carter’s in 1977.
The truth is the American electorate now sees Biden as weak on both domestic and international policies. These include, among others:
Immigration — migrants continue to pile up on the border with no immediate solution in the making
Afghanistan — a shameful exit strategy
Cuba — failure to lead by at least returning to Obama’s policy
Iran — yet to strike a nuclear deal
Student Loan — failure to cancel student loan debt
Physical Infrastructure — languishing in Congress
Social Infrastructure — languishing in Congress
Certainly, Biden has nothing to lose, so he may as well throw the kitchen sink at the problems rather than playing nice with the rumbunctious Republicans who are prepared to do or say anything to assume power.
Trump would have asked what is there to lose, and certainly, Biden should be asking the same question.
Historical precedence suggests that after the mid-term elections, a President is hemmed in by the opposition party, so if President Biden doesn’t act now, then when?
