The Clintons have already began preparing a plan to defeat Republican front-runner Donald Trump in a general election, according to a Monday report in The New York Times.
The report, based on interviews with more than two dozen advisers and Clinton allies, revealed that the Clintons believe their greatest weapon against the billionaire is the plethora of controversial and provocative comments he has made over the years toward women, minorities and others.
The campaign blueprint, currently being developed, has three parts, according to the Times:
The plan has three major thrusts: Portray Mr. Trump as a heartless businessman who has worked against the interests of the working-class voters he now appeals to; broadcast the degrading comments he has made against women in order to sway suburban women, who have been reluctant to support Mrs. Clinton; and highlight his brash, explosive temper to show he is unsuited to be commander in chief.
A staff member for an affiliated group, Correct the Record, which coordinates with Mrs. Clinton’s campaign, has collected footage of comments that have not hurt Mr. Trump’s standing among Republican primary voters, but that could be stitched together in what the group’s founder, David Brock, described as a montage of hateful speech that would appall a general electorate.
With all the information coming out on Trump’s shady business dealings, his support of Hillary Clinton and other liberals in the past, and the countless provable lies, how can the right not see the pathway for the Clinton’s to tear the Donald to pieces? We are all going to suffer dearly for it if we nominate a progressive liberal to run against a progressive liberal. It’s a lose, lose battle in that case.
