Trump will win every time! His plan is breathtaking! (Prove me wrong. Please.)

Today he moved forward again. Said there is nothing wrong with taking campaign info from foreign governments AND he would not allow the US to use a Kim family member as a spy in North Korea. Wacky? Criminal? Does not matter. His plan is to lay down a continuous barrage of BS every day. It amuses his base and gives his opponents so many targets that they cannot launch a focused attack. Watch it. He will defy court orders, issue contradictory instructions and statements, and generally sow confusion. He will appoint incompetents and fanatics to important roles. Congressional Democrats will fume and fuss about each new outrage but fail to pick a few big ones to use effectively against him. Trump is a genius at manipulating cowards and idiots. He will prevail in 2020. Some of his spawn may even follow him in office.

Please tell me why this is wrong...

*Trump has explained to him that the FBI Director says that not informing the FBI of such shenanigans is a crime.*

"The FBI Director is wrong."

Bonus points for laying bare his lust for dictatorship in way that even the most addlepated of his marching morons can understand.

But seriously, if his apparent voter deficit in 3-4 battleground states carries through the general, the problem will take care of itself.

The math is bad for Trump. When you consider that in the states that Trump flipped, he was only barely able to do so and it's very unlikely that he can exceed his percentages in 2016, it's clear that he's in trouble. What Trump wants is to have the race close enough so that if he doesn't win it, he can contest it. That's much harder to pull off if he takes on a challenger with the kind of broad appeal that Biden seems to have at the moment. The Democrats need to have someone who can eat into the center and even nibble at the edge of his "base." That's why I hope that the Democrats don't end up voting for someone like Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren, and why I hope Joe Biden can remain a strong, viable candidate.

You can see Trump's strategy is to make Joe Biden look old. When he tweets "Sleepy Joe," he's hoping it'll catch on with voters in the primary. Biden and Trump are both in their 70s, but many of Biden's opponents on the debate stage are younger, and Trump wants to remind voters of that while they're watching.

Biden and the rest of the Democratic candidates have to start calling Trump, "Agent Orange". It works on multiple levels.
