If the president thinks this isn’t concerning the coronavirus, it’s. It’s about well being care.

Trump desires to make the Supreme Court docket nominee the central argument of the homestretch of his marketing campaign, which Democrats might be more than pleased to do as a result of it would enable them to speak about healthcare, voting rights, racism, and lots of different points that may all be dominated on by the subsequent Supreme Court docket.
Democrats have already taken the Supreme Court docket combat and honed it into a pointy message on healthcare. Trump has been frightened for years that Democrats would homicide him on healthcare throughout an election. It’s why he retains promising imaginary healthcare plans that he has no intention of delivering.
Trump’s rush to push via a brand new Supreme Court docket nominee is already backfiring.
