Good news -- Trump plans to campaign for vulnerable Republicans during the upcoming campaign season.
According to the Washington Post, congressional Republicans made a presentation during their recent meeting with Trump at Camp David that more or less made the case that they're on track to lose control of Congress.
That reportedly prompted Trump to say he'll campaign for them.
The concern has grown so acute that Trump received what one congressional aide described as a “sobering” slide presentation about the difficult midterm landscape at Camp David last weekend, leading the president to pledge a robust schedule of fundraising and campaign travel in the coming months, White House officials said. [...]
In the Camp David presentation, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) described scenarios to the president ranging from a bloodbath where Republicans lost the House “and lost it big,” in the words of one official, to an outcome in which they keep control while losing some seats.
I say this is good news because we know it will be all about him. Trump will make every race he interferes in about himself.
Moreover, if he does more than raise money for these Republicans -- if he actually holds rallies for them -- there's a very high chance he'll say something extremely bad on their behalf. Trump recently took it upon himself to interfere in Alabama's special election and we ended up with the first Democratic senator from Alabama in nearly three decades.
And the year is young. There are still so many things Trump can fuck up between now and next November. We just saw a week in which Trump finally crossed a line that prompted most of the press to openly admit he is a racist.
