Trump allies and donors are getting nervous.
Some Trump advisers, campaign veterans and prominent Republicans see the Trump campaign’s efforts to define and damage former vice president Joe Biden –womp-womp– failing.
These Trump supporters see the angles of attack the campaign has tried, including Biden’s age and his work with China, are failing to dent the support the former Vice President has maintained.
Recent polling shows Trump behind in key swing states including Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. and Republican control of the Senate looking shaky.
“Take the gloves off and put him away,” said one Republican close to the White House. “If you have the cash advantage and you have all of June, why are you not burying him?”
“Donald Trump has thrown everything but the kitchen sink at Joe Biden since the day he entered the race, using recycled nicknames, outright lies and even disinformation to try and brand him as something he’s not,” said TJ Ducklo, national press secretary for the Biden campaign. “It failed miserably — VP Biden saw record turnout during sweeping victories this spring and united the Democratic Party around a nominee faster than in 2016 or 2008. Why? Because voters know Joe Biden, they know his character, and it’s going to take more than cheap marketing tricks perfected at Trump University to bring down a true public servant who has fought for middle class families for over 45 years.”
