Why would President Trump jump into the Democrat’s civil war with a tweet he must’ve known would be perceived as racist?
The answer is quite simple really.
Last week we were all talking about how Nancy Pelosi was at war with the “Squad” of socialists/communists within her party. Nancy may be nutty, but she is politically astute, and she was trying to create some daylight between the overall Democrat party and the radicals who call themselves the “Squad.”
Last Thursday, some in the media were actually beginning to describe Nancy Pelosi as a “moderate” for the way she was battling the radicals who were trying to take over the Democrat party. Nancy Pelosi a “moderate?” HA! Nancy was using her “war” with the “Squad” to reposition the Democrat party to the center of American politics. And it was all political kabuki.
Why was Nancy attempting to create that perception? New polling from Axios shows just how unpopular the “Squad” is with Democrats AND Independents. Nancy knew the best way for her and the rest of her party to be seen as “normal” and moderate was to put the “Squad” on an island. She knows that if the Democrats are perceived to be radicals they will lose to President Trump, and possibly hand the house back to the GOP next year.
And she was well on her way….until Trump said, “Oh no you don’t.”
For his part, President Trump wants to run against the party of the radical “Squad” next year, so he had to find a way to reunite them.
With his tweets about the “Squad,” President Trump forced Nancy and the Democrat party to embrace the four radicals of the “Squad.” He tied them together once again, and today Nancy and the Democrats will introduce a resolution condemning President Trump for, get this, his tweets.
Here’s a tweet from President Trump last night: “The Dems were trying to distance themselves from the four “progressives,” but now they are forced to embrace them. That means they are endorsing Socialism, hate of Israel and the USA! Not good for the Democrats!”
Double whammy, he endeared his base to him by telling radicals to “leave if you don’t like it here,” and he forced Nancy and her party to once again embrace the radicals.
Will it work? Who knows? But one thing is for sure, Nancy and the Democrats own AOC and the “Squad,” and that’s a good thing….for Donald Trump.
