Donald Trump’s reelection hinges on which side of the split-screen portrayal of his presidency one chooses to dwell upon.
From bad economic news to the ongoing government shutdown to bombshell reports that he directed his lawyer to lie to Congress, it has been a week to forget for the president.
The president keeps revising his explanation of hush-money payments made to two women who claimed to have had extramarital affairs with him.
Since before he was elected president, Donald Trump has operated in the belief that he can control his narrative through sheer force of will — and words. But this week, Trump’s relentless stream of messages seems to have come back to haunt him.
The release of "Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House" and the secret recordings made by its author, Omarosa Manigault Newman, get under the president's skin.
In yet another turbulent week for the White House, the president twice took comfort in his safest of safe spaces: the Trump rally.
Amid a debate over what motivated the alleged gunman to carry out this week's deadly mass shooting at the Capital Gazette newspaper, President Trump took a break from his usual anti-media rhetoric to condemn the killings.
“Many are longtime Republicans wrestling with what they see as a choice between two lousy candidates.”
“Some undecideds turn out to be people who’ve long felt alienated from the two big political parties.”
“They’re not following the 24-hour news cycle. The election and politics are just not a high priority.”
“One common trait: at this stage of the game, the undecided voter doesn’t fit into an easy political profile.”
“More realistically...these voters may not be motivated to vote at all in the 2020 election.”
