JANESVILLE, Wisconsin - President 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. He claimed, with no basis, that Democratic rival Joe Biden would put communities at risk.
Trump offered the dark message as he faces headwinds not only in national polling, which shows Biden leading, but also in key battleground surveys.
As he tries to energize his base and keep on-the-fence voters from turning against him, Trump sought to paint Democrats as anti-American radicals and said moderates had a moral duty to join the Republican Party.
The Democrat Party you once knew doesnt exist, he said.
It was the same on issue after issue, as he claimed in hyperbolic terms that Bidens election would spur the single biggest depression in the history of our country and turn Michigan into a refugee camp.
Addressing the coronavirus crisis, Trump warned that Biden would shut down the country, delay the vaccine and prolong the pandemic. Public health experts say the nation would be in far better shape had Trumps administration taken more aggressive action early on.
And while he repeatedly predicted victory, Trump seemed to grapple throughout the day with the prospect that he could indeed lose in November.
In Michigan, he quipped that, in January, he better damn well be president. In Wisconsin, he wondered how he would process a loss.
Can you imagine if I lose? I will have lost to the worst candidate in the history of American politics.

Exposing corruption is a fear tactic?
“...Michigan and Wisconsin - two Midwestern states that were instrumental to his 2016 victory but may now be slipping from his grasp.”
LOL! Ass Press co-writers Jill and Brian exhibiting proggie false hope, on pot.
JILL COLVIN (manmade gloBULL warming gate-keeper) is one of the “writers” of this drivel. btw didn’t Trump mention Hunter?
unfortunately, behind paywall:
Bidens popularity wanes as support for Trump grows
With just two weeks left before the US election, revelations about Joe Bidens sons dodgy business deals have put a serious dent in the former VPs lead over Donald Trump.
Daily Telegraph Australia - 18 Oct 2020
Tweet: Ronna McDaniel, GOP Chairwoman
Wisconsin helped put @realDonaldTrump over the top in 2016, and data from the Janesville rally shows an even broader base of support:
47.5% not Republican
24.1% did not vote in 2016

Nearly 4 years since he took office, and @realDonaldTrump is still drawing new voters.
From tonights Muskegon rally:
11,842 voters matched
Only 48.3% Republican
36% who did not vote in 2016
Thank you, Michigan!!

Michigan and Wisconsin ain’t “slipping from Trump’s grasp”. The best authorities on this are Ravi, Larry Schweikart, Richard Baris and Robert Barnes. As of yesterday, Republican returned ballots are either ahead or just a point or two behind the Dems in both states, when the Dems were expected to have a huge advantage in early mail-in voting. This simpleton writing for the Associated “Press” is about as accurate as Nate Silver, who on Election Night 2016 at 10:30 pm responded to Stephanopolous saying “Changing your forecast” to which the self-styled expert responded “Well, the betting markets now have Trump ahead”.
Where’s the barf alert?
I zeroed in on the same statement, but you gave the visual!
The AP writers sound desperate.
Just unbelievable the media bias against DJT. Keeping him in my prayers these next several weeks.
Sure.! I would almost bet money that Joe's kid, Joe himself, the Clintons and a whole lot of folks at the FIB are sweating blood right about now.. :)
We just got to believe that if Trump wins this election justice WILL have it's day...
And telling people Trump is going to take away your heath insurance is not a fear tactic? Oh, I get it. MSM wants the country to believe that people only vote for Trump if they are greedy, ignorant, frightened, xenophobic or racist. Unlike the woke, science-based, selfless dems.
These writers can stick it.
Now that the Dems have threatened to pack the courts, pack the union with phony new states, to destroy the electoral college and to take control permanently, they absolutely have threatened our American way of life.
And once a party makes such a threat, there’s really no taking it back. This is for all the marbles. It’s over for one party or the other.
AP: truth = fear tactic
AP = “Always Propaganda”
Gee American Pravda, has Biden leaned into fear tactics when claiming all sorts of disasters would happen if Trump were re-elected?
How come you never call it that when Democrats do it?
