The two Chairman of Pro-Trump Super PAC Great America PAC are sounding the alarm on the “adrift” Trump campaign while providing the steps they say are necessary for President Trump to take in order to get his campaign and America back on track.
Writing in USA Today Ed Rollins and Eric Breach state:
The Trump campaign can reverse Biden’s fortunate momentum by recapturing the “Make America Great Again” movement of 2016. With so much dividing us, Americans want their country back. If anarchy can damage our cities, capitalism will build them back up. If Democrats and media elites want to label Americans racist and divide us, President Trump can demonstrate that it is unity that guides us.
How can President Trump do it? He must recapture the original “MAGA” themes, hammering home the “America First” message of 2016, from law and order to middle-class tax cuts and conservative jurisprudence. President Trump also needs to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the riots that marred broad protests for racial justice, with creativity, empathy and tenacity.
First, using executive authority and federal assets like the National Guard, President Trump should push back on chaotic elements when Democratic governors and mayors are too weak or unwilling to protect their citizens. Block bills for funding for cities that allow anarchy, sanctuary status for illegal immigrants, destruction of monuments and defunding of police. Create tax incentives for those willing to rebuild and take their cities back.
At the same time, the president must remind citizens of these Democratic-led states and cities that liberal policies and lawlessness are recipes for disaster. The administration’s record of achieving record-low Black unemployment and addressing criminal justice reform in any other year would be solid, but President Trump needs new, innovative thinking to accompany it.
They end with calling for Trump to focus on education, specifically reopening schools in the fall.
