And what was Trump’s response to this disastrous economic news, that threatens his reelection? Any other president would reassure & calm Americans about this situation.
Instead, within hours Trump tweeted that the election might need to be postponed, despite him having no authority to do so. Anything unrelated to distract from news that makes him look bad.
When a crisis is unflattering for Trump, he creates another news bombshell to draw our attention away. A magician or con man's typical slight-of-hand trick: Make the audience look elsewhere.
My greatest concern is what crisis Trump will invent as November comes closer. Will he declare war on Iran or North Korea, possibly Venezuela, knowing that presidents always see a surge of support (at least initially) during wars? If done as an October surprise, could a boost last until November 3rd?
