His Own Worst Enemy
One of the reasons Donald Trump won the election was a deep division within the Democratic party. Next year he will have the advantages of incumbency and a united party. If his opponent has to contend with party disunity, he or she will be at a tremendous disadvantage. If Democrats are fighting, he should let them tear each other apart.
Recently Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accused Nancy Pelosi of racism and compared moderates to southern segregationists of the past. Things were getting pretty heated. Then President Trump attacked the “four freshmen”. He said that if they hated America, they should go back to where they came from. I don’t think he meant it in a racist way but his choice of words was poor. Now Democrats are uniting against him and calling him a racist.
The person he should fear the most is not Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren or the rest of the thundering herd. He is his own worst enemy. It remains to be seen how much he will hurt his own cause.
