Trump plans to visit Arizona, another battleground state where he is behind in polls, for two campaign events on Monday.“You think I’m doing this for my health?” Trump said about his whirlwind schedule. “I’m not doing this for my health.”
Democratic nominee Joe Biden, the former vice president, has kept a lower profile, and he did not hold any events on Saturday. His running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris of California, has also been grounded after two people on her campaign planetested positive for the coronavirus
. She has subsequently tested negative and is expected to visit Florida on Monday, the first day of in-person voting in that battleground state.During Trump’s first rally on Saturday in Muskegon, a small lakefront community northwest of Grand Rapids, he largely ditched the teleprompter and leaned hard into a number of divisive cultural issues, railing about the “radical left” and “cancel culture.”
AdvertisementHe blasted efforts to remove Confederate statues and alter American history curricula to include a more unflinching examination of slavery and the Jim Crow era, characterizing the moves as part of a broader “crusade against American history” and “our heritage” that he blamed on Democrats.
He intentionally mispronounced the name of Rep. Ilhan Omar, a former Somali refugee elected in 2018, and told the crowd that the Minnesota congresswoman “does not love our country too much,” and that she in fact “hates” it. It was the first of three such references to Omar, which he repeated later in Wisconsin. Yet moments later, Trump blasted Democrats for their supposed intolerance, citing efforts to “cancel” more traditional renderings of American history.
“These are not the tactics of a respectable political movement,” Trump said. He then claimed falsely that Democrats wanted to remove the Jefferson Memorial and “blow up” Mt. Rushmore.He blasted Biden numerous times, telling his supporters that his opponent is “shot.” Biden, he said, “never had the kind of control that you have to have to be president.”
AdvertisementAs usual, Trump offered nothing resembling a policy agenda for a second term. Yet he promised that his never-defined plan “will make the state better in every single way than it was before,” while “Biden’s plan will crush Michigan.”In Michigan and later Wisconsin, Trump largely avoided the main issues of importance to voters. He didn’t talk about healthcare at all and only briefly mentioned the stagnant economy and the pandemic, blasting Democrats for imposing what he called “unscientific lockdowns.”

Trump is sick physically and mentally. He needs help from his doctors, not votes from Americans. These two things somehow connected? It shows how desperate he is. The Republican leadership should do something about him. This is not the action of someone who wants to be president.This is the action of someone so desperate to get out of a situation, he's willing to cause any kind of chaos to make it happen, instead of admitting he doesn't want to do the job. No integrity whatsoever.

Because the CCP is using national power, spies, and bribery senior American officials to prevent Trump from being re-elected at all cost
He supports far right terrorists, what a surprise!
