Re: 1984 was not the only instruction manual
Not necessarily: it's not something that you can keep in the news all the time, especially if rates (doesn't really matter which ones) are falling.
Trump just likes to appear powerful and decisive and will try pretty much any stunt to do so.
Some known near-term risks for his campaign:
- the economy, especially unemployment
- hurricane season
- increasing death rates amongst "snow birds" in Florida
- court ordering his tax returns be made public
He's probably got as much out of the TikTok thing as he can and, lucky for him, a Supreme Court judge died on Friday so he gets an opportunity to pander to religious extremists.
