Donald Trump has a re-election campaign strategy, and it certainly isn’t “offer a domestic agenda that isn’t massively unpopular” or “stop screwing up the pandemic response”:
President Donald Trump’s political operation is expanding its legal effort to stop Democrats from overhauling voting laws in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Republican National Committee and Trump reelection campaign are doubling their legal budget to $20 million as litigation spreads to an array of battleground states. With the virus likely to complicate in-person balloting in November, Democrats have been pushing to substantially ease remote voting restrictions — something the Trump campaign and RNC are aggressively fighting in the courts.
And now, some classic bothsidesism:
Trump, who has long been fixated on voter fraud, has taken a personal interest in the project. He is expected to discuss the legal maneuvering during a meeting with his political team Thursday.
Yes, I’m sure this explains everything.
The “good news” is that you don’t need to hide what you’re doing when partisans with a similar hostility to voting rights control the Supreme Court.
