There has been a particularly frustrating weekend for Us 45. president. Saturday, it was clear that a federal judge would not stop the book to the former national sikkerhetsrådgiveren John Bolton, so The white house demanded. And then Donald Trump on the night of Sunday to travel the old woman after a discouraging week, he and his candidacy a good idea roll around by teenagers. Trump was beaten at home, on social media, on young people's ever more popular channel, TikTok. The world goes still to come.
Wednesday comes the book of Bolton. It can be the bolt that is nailing again the ark of Trump as president. The reason is that the book can take from the Trump his main valgkampsak. In the absence of other issues will Trump all the judge try to make China to its hovedmotstander in the fall election. He will put the responsibility for the spread of coronaviruset in the united STATES at China, for there is nothing so unifying as an external enemy. Trump has long called the virus "the chinese virus", and topped the rhetoric when he night to Sunday called the virus "Kung Flu". So, why China?
Trump own inadequacy in the tackle of the virus is obvious. First, he believed it was something that would blow away "as if by a miracle" in the course of a few weeks in march. Then he said that he took a malariamedisin against the virus that both the WHO and us health authorities say does not help, but on the contrary may be dangerous for cardiac patients. And after around 122 000 dead each remove in the world - praises his hemningsløst of their own success, and at the same time in the weekend called together to massemønstringen of followers in Tulsa in Oklahoma, despite warnings that it could lead to a new proliferation of the virus. Therefore China. The perfect enemy, as for Trump's supporters can prove the president to be the scapegoat for a well-documented beside the point strategy in pestens time.
Had it not been for the foreign policy hawk John Bolton, who topped his long career in Washington to be the premier academic alibi for the Donald Trumps "America First" policy. But as the third in the row of the Trumps national sikkerhetsrådgivere also got Bolton fired a year ago. And as the first of the Trumps real insiders reveals Bolton kunnskapsløsheten, dumskapen and the chaos in the Trump administration.
Here revealed that Trump thought that Finland was part of Russia, and that he did not know that Britain was a atomvåpenmakt. It is revealed that Trump said of the chinese president Xi Jinping that interned a million muslims - ten percent of China's muslims - was "exactly the right thing to do". And that He prayed for help to be re-elected to plead on chinese imports of soybeans from states in the Midwest, which is nøkkelstater that Trump must win in the election in november. Also so flattered Trump Xi on to say that he was the most important leader in China's history.
this is it smiskingen and ræv-sleikingen of Xi Jinping which is the politically most important. How can Trump make the China to his boss in the election campaign after it is revealed that he licked Xis ass private? And how can he link the democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden to the complacency towards China when he himself has acted as he has? Here Trump a big communications problem.
But it is far from the only issue Trump has. This weekend should Trump seriously started the campaign with massemøtet Tulsa. Massemøter of devoted followers, and abuse of opponents, was Trumps main weapons in the election four years ago. But Tulsa started it not good. In spite of the corona-the father built the Trump on the advance up great expectations to say that a million fans would come. It was based on the feedback on social media.
But in reality came there almost none. Large massemønstringer and speeches scheduled outside of the arena that took 19 000 people was cancelled because it didn't come people. And from inside the arena reported, among other things CNN that there were only 10 000 spectators. And the difference between 1 000 000 and 10 000 is more than two zeros. There are 990 000 people. Most evidence suggests that the Trump was tricked by young Trump opponents on the social media TikTok, who booked the tickets for the event, but never intended to come.
Trump got so this weekend beating on their own home turf, on social media. And he got a beating away from home, of his former employee, Bolton. That because of China could be the bolt that is nailing again Trumps political coffin.You can submit your article and opinion piece in Dagbladet here
