The Trump reelection campaign is betting that “disaffected Democrats” have had enough of radical progressivism, launching the “Democrats for Trump” coalition on Thursday.
“From the sham impeachment to the outright embrace of socialism, the Democrat party of today is unrecognizable and leaving moderate Democrats behind,” said President Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, in a statement. “For Democrats who feel abandoned by the socialist radicalization of their party, there is room for you on Team Trump and we welcome you to join the movement and a President that are putting America first.”
Parscale also took to Twitter to release campaign internal polling showing the possibility of Democrats holding House seats in districts won by Trump in 2016.

President Trump made a famous flip of a Democrat when Representative Jeff Van Drew moved over to the GOP amid impeachment.
The campaign said its new coalition is for moderate liberals who want to work with Trump-led conservatives on lowering prescription drug costs, passing strong trade deals and fixing America’s infrastructure.
