Conventions are supposed to be places where you lay out your platform and policies, in his case for a second term, and brag about IMPOTUS’ and his party’s achievements. tRump hasn’t had any consistent policies while in office. His major achievement has been dividing the nation. His platform is hardly one in which Republicans should or could be proud of. Its tRumpism all the way, meaning its fascism, racism, xenophobia, gender discrimination and that big government takeover by political hacks and acting heads of agencies that were never confirmed by the Senate, but allowed to do so much damage to the country by Republicans in the Senate anyway.
He can’t run on reducing the debt and deficits since he thoroughly fucked that up with his incompetence and malfeasance…and that all came before the pandemic blew a hole in the debt by major giveaways to his donors. The pandemic only made it so much worse and he’s still unprepared to deal with it. He’s done nothing in 3+ years other than reduce taxes for the wealthy. He’s taken the side of corporate greed over the plight of hard working Americans. His foreign policies have been incoherent, impulsive and erratic. He’s made the US a pariah around the world. There’s nothing a convention could do for him other than expose more of the lies by those that attend.
