‘It’s time for the Democrats to stop bashing President Trump.’
Is that a voice of reason amidst the anti-Trump mob? Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown urged the Democrat mob to quit bashing President Trump if they want to win in November.
‘President Trump’s policies remain popular with many Americans, which means Democrats need to find a campaign strategy beyond just bashing him.’
The San Francisco Chronicle reports,
It’s time for the Democrats to stop bashing President Trump.
It’s not going to be easy, given his policies and personality. It might even mean checking into a 12-step program. But setting a winning agenda is like maneuvering an aircraft carrier. It takes time to change course. And if they want to be on target for the November midterm elections, the Democrats need to start changing course now.
Like it or not, a significant number of Americans are actually happy these days. They are making money. They feel safe, and they agree with with the president’s protectionist trade policies, his call for more American jobs, even his immigration stance.
The jobs growth reports, the North Korea summit and the steady economy are beating out the Stormy Daniels scandal and the Robert Mueller investigation in Middle America, hands down.
Rather than stoking the base by attacking Trump, Democrats need to come up with a platform that addresses the average voters’ hopes and concerns. Not just the needs of underdogs or whatever cause happens to be the media flavor of the week.
