According to New York Magazine’s article on the “Fire and Fury” book by Michael Wolff, Trump and his campaign did not expect to win the 2016 election. It says:
Even though the numbers in a few key states had appeared to be changing to Trump’s advantage, neither Conway nor Trump himself nor his son-in-law, Jared Kushner — the effective head of the campaign — wavered in their certainty: Their unexpected adventure would soon be over. Not only would Trump not be president, almost everyone in the campaign agreed, he should probably not be. Conveniently, the former conviction meant nobody had to deal with the latter issue.
The liberal media have been having a field day criticizing Trump for his poor campaign and rudderless administration, hyping the book, “Fire and Fury.” The opposite inference from the discussion of this book is that the Democrats failed to defeat the worst candidate who ever ran for President. The book says that even Trump did not expect to win.
How did the Democratic Party turn out to be such a gigantic failure, pulling defeat from the jaws of victory? At least part of the problem for Democrats was that they lost contact with a considerable portion of the United States population — ordinary white people. The Democrats have become the party of minorities — mainly Jews, blacks and Hispanics. This is probably the constituency of the future, but it was not for 2016.
People ridiculed Trump for saying he would save coal mining jobs despite a failing industry, but the Democratic position was that coal miners should just go away and die. Meanwhile the Democrats promised and gave billions to blacks, Hispanics and other minorities. They clearly favored non-citizen DACA kids over unemployed American citizens in the rust belt; however, there were still enough white voters left so that the Democrats’ decision to spit in their faces lost the election.
Since the election, the Democrats, led primarily by Jews such as Ben Cardin and Adam Schiff, have tried to nullify the election by claiming Russian meddling. As Congressional committees have failed to remove Trump, the Democrats have turned to special counsel Robert Mueller to find grounds for removing Trump. Mueller is under extreme pressure from his Democratic patrons to find some way to remove Trump, but he may have the integrity and character to stand up to them and do an honest investigation. Because of the political animosity surrounding the issue, whatever result he reaches will be subject to strong criticism from one or both sides. But for now, Trump is still President.
