The Senate trial drags on, with senators mulling the possibility of bringing in witnesses. As the media continues to spin, Trump flew to Wildwood, NJ for a campaign event. This “blue state” crowd should have Democrats worried, as tens of thousands flocked the arena. Trump spoke to a packed-out event, calling out the Democrats’ lack of ability and leadership.
Let’s get the facts out of the way first. New Jersey is considered a “blue state” that largely supports Democrats. Much of the East Coast is consider Democrat territory, especially for presidential elections. But Trump’s team must think parts of the region are in play, if they planned an event in Wildwood, NJ.
In fact, according to Trump’s campaign manager, there were 158,632 ticket requests—with over 70,000 identified voters. Of the thousands that attended the historic event, 10.4 percent didn’t vote in 2016 and 26.3 percent were Democrats.
If that doesn’t make Democrats nervous, they’re not paying attention.
As usual, President Trump’s presence transformed the town into MAGA land. With a packed venue and thousands outside in the overflow, he made his case for 2020.
“While we are creating jobs and killing terrorists, the congressional Democrats are obsessed with demented hoaxes, crazy witch hunts, and deranged partisan crusades,” Trump said. “We will make sure they face another crushing defeat in the next election.”
“Earnings for the bottom 10 percent are rising faster than earnings for the top 10 percent, for the first time ever… Since my election, the net worth for the bottom half of wage-earners has increased by 47 percent, three times faster than the increase for the top one-percent.”

The media is fixated on the Senate impeachment trial. They, along with Democrats in Washington, are hoping that the Senate will vote to bring up witnesses. Even if they do, it won’t change the facts. Trump did nothing wrong and will be acquited.
He has the American people on his side. Over the last three years, he’s made good on one promise after another.
Even in recent days, he’s continued to win. The Supreme Court handed him a victory, overturning a lower court injunction on his public charge rule for immigrants. His administration will limit handing out Green Cards to those who live off of government support. President Trump also rolled out his peace plan for Israel and Palestine. The plan is the most comprehensive and thought-out plan of it’s kind, going much farther than any previous president.
The president also pointed to the defection of Jeff Van Drew from the Democratic Party. The former liberal exited the left over the partisan House impeachment vote. He took a huge risk, because he was disgusted by how the Democrats were pushing their bogus hoax.
“We are privileged to be joined tonight by a courageous leader who left the Democrat Party because he has had enough of their extremism, enough of their socialism, enough of their vile hoaxes and scams,” Trump said.
“This year, this very year is a flashpoint election,” Van Drew said after Trump’s introduction. “Are we going to allow ourselves just to be like any other nation in the world, or are we going to keep America great?” [Source: Fox News]
Democrats have an uphill battle going into November 2020. They might have the mainstream media on their side (spinning every story to help them), but they have little else to their advantage. After Democrat retook the House in 2018—what have they done to help regular Americans?
Last year, they shut down the government, delayed or obstructed Trump policies, and pushed all their time and resources into impeachment.
That was, of course, when they weren’t defending the anti-Semitic members of their own party.
The response at Trump’s rally could be a sign of how millions of Americans are feeling around the country. They are done with the Democrats and are ready to let them know it—at the polls.
