President Trump is outwardly greatest described as a past-its-prime ’80s rock band, and his midterm technique is just like the hit single that simply will not go away.
Because the midterm elections approached, Trump stored firing off tweets on the identical topics — immigration, fake news, jobs — that continued to pump up his already excited base. These tweets, a GOP operative tells CNN, make Trump “like Journey who will not cease enjoying ‘Do not Cease Believing.'”
The supply went on to clarify that Trump “solely performs the identical track to his base, each tweet is mainly the identical,” and stated “he solely trusts what received him the presidency in distinctive circumstances in 2016.” That would clarify why, together with enjoying one Journey hit, the president has humored ongoing “lock her up” chants at rallies two years after he beat Hillary Clinton.
However this supply might wish to watch out evaluating Republican messaging to a band that Trump practically tore aside. When three Journey bandmates visited Trump within the White Home final yr, the one remaining authentic member did not go, Billboard writes. Guitarist Neal Schon faithfully caught by the band’s creed to “by no means be used and exploited by anybody, particularly band members for politics or anybody faith,” he later wrote in Fb publish.
Maybe it is best if Trump sticks with some tried and true favorites for his rallies and metaphors. Might we propose that one single hit by Child Rock?
