Keep his cool, and stick to the facts. Round 2 coming!
The Republican nominee’s stamina showed no signs of wear and tear Tuesday in Florida, where he hosted a Miami town hall event hours before he was slated to take the stage at a rally in Melbourne, Florida.
Trump did exactly what he should have done — The billionaire businessman was in Miami Tuesday shoring up his support among minorities, by courting the Hispanic vote during a town hall in Miami in the city’s Little Havana neighborhood. People that were in attendance showered the nominee with chants of “Trump!” and “U.S.A.,” the Sun Sentinel reported.
Trump said Tuesday morning during an appearance on “Fox and Friends.” “I don’t know if you saw that in the room, but my microphone was terrible. I wonder, was it set up that way on purpose?”
Trump’s performance was amazing even though the powers that be tried to hinder it, in part on Lester Holt, the debate’s moderator, as well as a malfunctioning microphone.
However, Donald Trump got back on message on Tuesday after Democrat Hillary Clinton put him on the defensive at their first debate, and he cast her as “stuck in the past” and himself as a change agent.
Trump’s speech to thousands at a rally in a Florida airport hangar included some points that some supporters wished he had made before the record television audience of 84 million people for the debate on Monday in Hempstead, New York.
Trump did exactly what he should have done
But what needs to be understood is, Trump did exactly what he should have done. Trump proved he is very Presidential in Monday’s debate. However, you can expect to see Trump go on the attack next debate.
Trump’s first campaign day after his debate performance, which received mixed reviews from voters, was aimed at taking advantage of polls showing him in a tight race in Florida with 41 days to go until the Nov. 8 election.
“For 90 minutes, Secretary Clinton was stuck in the past. For 90 minutes, on issue after issue, Secretary Clinton defended the terrible status quo – while I laid out our plan to bring jobs, security, and prosperity back to the American people,” Trump said.
Earlier, at a Cuban bakery in Miami’s Little Havana area, Trump sipped coffee and ordered pastries and empanadas and heard cries of “Viva Trump” from some patrons there.
Elsewhere in the neighborhood, Trump held a roundtable discussion with Latino supporters, an effort to bolster his support among Hispanic-American voters who worry about his hardline immigration policy.
“We are going to win Florida so big,” Trump told the crowd.
“Almost every single poll had us winning the debate against crooked Hillary Clinton, big league, big league,” he said.
“I was also holding back, I didn’t want to do anything to embarrass her,” Trump said. Trump did exactly what he should have done.
Casting Clinton as a captive of old-style politics, the GOP nominee reprised what advisers thought was his best debate-night attack.
“What has Hillary Clinton accomplished for your family in the last 26 years that she has done this?” he asked. “Nothing, nothing.”
At the debate, he had slammed her as having “got experience — but it’s bad experience.”
And having failed to drive home the email issue when face-to-face with Clinton, Trump said Tuesday that her email scandal continued to look worse and worse.
“Her aides took the Fifth Amendment and her ringleaders were given immunity, and if you’re not guilty of a crime what do you need immunity for?” he said.
Trump brought his biggest fundraisers to Trump Tower Tuesday and raised $18 million. Online donations augmented that total as well.
Trump camp returns fire targets Clintons’ treatment of women.
Trump campaign hits Hillary with Bill’s affairs
Donald Trump’s campaign is signaling that Bill Clinton’s history of affairs and alleged sexual misconduct – as well as Hillary Clinton’s treatment of the women involved – is now fair game after his Democratic opponent took the first shot by calling out his own negative comments toward women at Monday’s debate.
The Republican nominee took a direct swipe at the former president during a New Hampshire rally on Thursday, in a sign of jabs.
“The American people have had it with years and decades of Clinton corruption and scandal,” Trump said. “And impeachment for lying. … Remember that?” Trump did exactly what he should have done.
Trump and his surrogates argue that Clinton opened the door when she raised accusations during Monday’s debate that Trump called former Miss Universe Alicia Machado names and taunted her.
In an early morning tweet-storm, Trump hammered Clinton and Machado for teaming up against him — and referenced Machado’s checkered past.
Meanwhile, Trump’s campaign seems poised to openly discuss not only Bill Clinton’s sex scandals but Hillary Clinton’s alleged treatment of his accusers.
“Part of it is … how Hillary Clinton has poorly treated women for many, many years,” retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, a Trump supporter, told “Fox & Friends” on Friday.
“If you look at her being an enabler, really, in the ‘90s and really attacking these women, it goes against everything that she now tries to spout as a candidate for president,” David Bossie, Trump’s deputy campaign manager, said on the same program.
Such comments are part of a new game plan. According to a talking points memo reported by CNN and NBC News, the campaign is urging surrogates to discuss how Hillary Clinton “bullied” women tied to her husband’s controversies.
“Hillary Clinton bullied and smeared women like Paula Jones, Gennifer Flowers, and Monica Lewinsky”, according to the reported talking points.
The memo suggests stressing that the former first lady “has been an active participant in trying to destroy the women” who have made allegations against Bill Clinton.
The Democratic nominee, asked Thursday by reporters about the plan Trump push to invoke her husband’s controversies and impeachment, did not respond directly.
Before Monday’s debate, Trump tweeted possible plans to invite Gennifer Flowers, Bill Clinton’s former mistress. The campaign did not follow through on the threat – though after Clinton was seen by many analysts as getting the better of Trump during that debate, the GOP nominee said he had held back and threatened to hit harder in the next round.
“There continues to be this conversation about what he has said but when you look at what she has done – Gennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, Monica Lewinsky … My goodness, Monica Lewinsky had to start an anti-bullying campaign because of what the Clintons did,” said Tennessee Rep. Marsha Blackburn, a Trump supporter, said during an interview on MSNBC on Wednesday.
Republican consultant Sarah Lenti told FoxNews.com, “Clinton was not right for bringing [Machado] into the debate and the campaign obviously sought her out. But what Trump would be better off doing is rolling out a new policy proposal every day that affects women in a positive way, by talking about national security in a way that goes beyond building a wall.”
But, after a period over the summer where Bill Clinton’s past seemed to fade as a campaign issue, its return to the political fray may be inevitable.
Juanita Broderick, who accused Bill Clinton of rape decades ago (an allegation he denies), has become more active on Twitter, attacking both Clintons and singling out Chelsea Clinton for defending her father.
That was after Chelsea Clinton told Cosmopolitan magazine that any attack on her parents was “a distraction from his inability to talk about what’s actually at stake in this election.”
The discussion could cut both ways for Hillary Clinton herself. The Washington Post detailed how Clinton “helped forge aggressive defenses” as other women from her husband’s past emerged after Flowers.
Whether Trump directly goes after Hillary Clinton on this front in the next debate remains to be seen. I believe Trump will attack Hillary on her indiscretions, and treatment of women.
Its time to play hardball and Trump is more than ready! Hillary and Bill have tons of indiscretions, when pertaining to women, foreign policy corruption, Clinton foundation corruption, pay to play Secretary state department, not to mention, Benghazi and Hillary’s emails.
It Hillary wants to play dirty, she’s in for the fight of her life!
