Trump leans into fear tactics in bid to win Midwest states

Trump leans into fear tactics in bid to win Midwest statesPresident Donald Trump leaned into fear tactics Saturday as he accused the left of trying to “destroy the American way of life” in a late reelection pitch to voters in Michigan and Wisconsin — two Midwestern states that were instrumental to his 2016 victory but may now be slipping from his grasp. In back-to-back rallies, Trump accused the left of wanting to “erase American history” and “purge American values.” Trump offered the dark message as he faces headwinds not only in national polling, which shows Biden leading, but also in key battleground surveys.
