“Donald Trump isn’t really running a campaign for president anymore. Instead, he’s involved in an extended revenge plot or is simply following the politics of grievance to its natural, unseemly end,” Chris Cillizza writes.
“It appears as though Trump’s minders have effectively given up, allowing the candidate to pursue his own score-settling and airing of grievances in these final weeks of the campaign. Taking that road may bring some satisfaction to Trump. But it has the potential to do catastrophic damage to the party he ostensibly leads as the GOP tries to hold its Senate and House majorities amid declining enthusiasm within its own ranks for its presidential nominee.”
“To care about that effect would mean that Trump was running a real campaign that grasped the idea that it’s about more than just the whims of a single candidate. He simply isn’t doing that.”Save to Favorites
