FOX News kept cutting away from Trump’s Revenge Tour announcement speech which went on for longer than an hour. I didn’t catch all of it, but here are some highlights.
1. Trump vowed to use the military to crush BLM and Antifa riots
2. Trump wants speedy, one-day trials for drug dealers like in China
3. Trump wants the death penalty for drug dealers
4. Trump wants to get rid of early voting
None of this will ever happen.
The system doesn’t work like this.
The Democrat governors in Minnesota, Michigan, Washington and Oregon allowed their states to descend into chaos. They refused to allow Trump to quell the George Floyd riots. They were all reelected. The people who live in those states support what happened during COVID and the George Floyd riots.
As for executing drug dealers and getting rid of early voting, it would also be nice, but it is also never going to happen because the states are in charge of public safety and their elections. There could be some movement in that direction though at the state level. Georgia, for example, currently has a ridiculous early voting period where the election lasts a month. Alabama doesn’t have early voting. Southern states with trifectas and supermajorities should take the lead in tightening up their election laws.
Trump seems to have forgotten about the First Step Act and his various pardons of black rappers. Jared and Ivanka refused to attend his announcement speech and don’t want to be involved in politics. From what I remember, Trump blamed Jared for failing to win a larger share of the black vote after the 2020 election. It was always Jared’s idea who ran his awful 2020 campaign. The fact that Jared ran Trump’s 2020 campaign into the ground was forgotten when the result was all blamed on election fraud.
