GOP Donors Worry That Trump Has 'No Plan and No Strategy' for 2020

GOP Donors Worry That Trump Has ‘No Plan and No Strategy’ for 2020


snip//

According to POLITICO, a dozen sources connected to Trump’s re-election campaign, and to donors who attended the retreat, said they are very nervous about the plans laid out by Parscale, who served as the president’s digital media director in 2016. Parscale has never run a large political campaign before.

One outside adviser who’s close to the campaign said:

“Donors are asking for the plan and they have no plan. There’s not a strategy.”

Donors expressed confusion about why America First Action, the president’s main 2020 super PAC, spent $3 million of its $34 million in last year’s elections to back Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX), who lost.

“There is true reluctance to give because there’s no plan or coherent structure to give to,” said one anonymous Republican fundraiser. “The campaign is doing really well with small-dollar donations, but it’s the high-end contributions the PAC is failing on.”


Republican donors are concerned that Trump’s re-election campaign officials have reached incorrect conclusions from November’s midterm shellacking that saw an historic Blue Wave and Democrats taking control of the House.

One donor friend of Trump said:

“There’s a lot of anxiety. There isn’t a lot of confidence.”

1. Trump's just going to flap his gums in front of his 10 tooth base.

 

That's about all he did last time.

2. His strategy is going to be "OWN THE LIBS!", which is exactly what it's been

since the day he kicked off his campaign in 2015 attacking brown people.

3. "Use their money to hold over-priced campaign events at Trump properties" is a plan

4. He doesn't...

...had none for 2016

Thinks he can do it again.

Just wing it. It’s worked for him so far.

5. He probably is already

Using his donations to his campaign to pay his legal fee's and personal debts with , again, and his donors are starting to wise up to his tactics. I think he has no intentions of running , and its all another act to generate money for him with it.

8. Huh?

What are they worried about? Not enough help from Putin this time? If they were expecting a "plan" from Trump they haven't been paying attention. Perhaps their next tax heist hasn't been explained to their satisfaction.

Voter disenfranchisement, wall, brown people, open borders, socialism, guns, deregulation. And LIES. Lots and lots and lots of LIES. Same as 2016, no?

13. This suggests Trump had a plan and strategy in 2016.

He didn't. He peddled anger and hate and threw huge buckets of red meat to the masses.

Of his political goals, he's accomplished few. The only real one was a giant tax-cut for corporate America. That was rushed through by the Republican controlled Congress at request of their dark money donors.

Trump hasn't repealed Obamacare.

Trump hasn't built his wall.

Trump hasn't ended the deficit.

Trump hasn't brought any jobs back to America.

Trump hasn't got the trade deals he wanted. NAFTA exists still, but they renamed it.

Trump hasn't gotten China under control with IP theft and other economic shenanigans they are up to.

It's the best choice the smart money has.
