In the following instance of how Donald Trump views himself as an authoritarian ruler who will not be contested the president is allegedly contemplating bypassing the 2020 presidential debates.
In accordance with The New York Times,”President Trump is talking with his advisers that the potential for hanging out that the general election discussions in 2020 due to his misgivings regarding the commission that manages them, based on two people knowledgeable about the talks.”
The report notes that Trump is concerned about who will be selected to moderate the discussions.
More from The Times:
Mr. Trump has told advisers he doesn’t even trust the Commission on Presidential Debates, the nonprofit entity that sponsors the discussions, the 2 individuals said.
Less of an issue for Mr. Trump than that will emerge as the Democratic nominee is that media character is going to be picked as the discussion moderator, based on individuals connected with him.
In a state-of-the-race effort briefing at Arlington, Va., the president’s advisors declined to comment on exactly what their strategy was for its debates. 1 senior advisor to the president appeared to wince in the question, also stated it wasn’t something advisers were ready to talk until annually.
The report, citing former Clinton aides, also unlocks the chance that Trump could only participate in 1 debate because it”wouldn’t be smart” to stand out .
The Fox News president crumbles Outside the MAGA bubble
Donald Trump has great reason to be worried about participating in the presidential debates next year. After all, polls revealed that Hillary Clinton cleaned his clock in all three of the debates held 2016, although Trump blamed a faulty mic for a number of his battles.
And of course the president has spent the previous 3 decades increasingly within of the Fox News-MAGA bubble, much more so than he had been through the 2016 election cycle. He’s comfortable conversing with Sean Hannity or calling into Fox & Friends than he’s taking valid inquiries from real journalists.
Insert Trump’s distress with stepping from his echo chamber to his apparent psychological reduction — many recently placed on display in this week’s MAGA rally in Pennsylvania — and it is no wonder that this president needs nothing to do with a presidential debate.
