Donald Trump

The argument Trump can actually win

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

Trump will never be able to fully defuse the ticking time bombs, even against "likeable enough" Hillary. What he can do is more consistently press the case that his ruthlessness can be made to work for the American people, not just for himself.

The Viguerie Take On The Trump -- Clinton Debate

For those voters who want to change our country's leadership Trump helped them feel that he was an acceptable alternative. Trump did last night what Reagan did in 1980 for those undecided voters --he showed he was an acceptable alternative.

Clinton’s Real Foe in Tonight’s Debate: Fairness

David Catron, The American Spectator

What’s making Hillary's supporters jumpy is that the moderator might actually be fair, and refuse to join Hillary in a tag-team takedown of Trump. They quite literally want Lester Holt to reprise the contemptible role Candy Crowley played in the second 2012 presidential debate.

Before debate, Clinton works refs, asks for special treatment

Byron York, Washington Examiner

For several days, Democrats and their supporters in the press have demanded that presidential debate moderator Lester Holt factcheck Donald Trump in Monday night's showdown at Hofstra University. Those demands turned to pleading Sunday when Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, Robby Mook, appearing on ABC's "This Week," asked for special treatment for Clinton in the event that Trump tells lies from the debate stage.

How Trump Could Win the Debate

Rich Lowry, National Review

Tonight's debate is an event tailor-made for Trump to change one of the main factors holding him back. By roughly 60 percent to 30 percent, people think Clinton is prepared to be president; by roughly 60 percent to 30 percent, people think Trump is not. A credible performance could move that number for Trump, and appreciably increase his odds of winning the presidency.

When ‘deplorables’ took back their country

Thomas C. Steward, Washington Times

Jackson’s policies were controversial at the time, and are still vigorously debated by historians, but Jackson rocked the political establishment and made government more accountable to the people. Could we have a second Jacksonian Revolution? That depends on whether the American people trust Donald Trump to lead one.

Donald Trump Expands Supreme Court Justice List, Includes Mike Lee

Alex Swoyer, Breitbart

Judicial Crisis Network’s Carrie Severino says conservatives should be “very pleased” with the expanded list. “Donald Trump continues to take unprecedented steps to demonstrate that he intends to appoint justices like Scalia, Thomas and Alito,” Severino says. “Conservatives should be very pleased by the steps he has taken, and if he lives up to his promises we will have a Court that truly puts the rule of law ahead of political preferences.”

Gary Bauer: Trump on a Number of Issues is BETTER Than What Passes for Conservatism Today

This November, voters who cherish faith, family and freedom have a very clear choice:  Voting for Donald Trump gives us a chance to restore America.  Not voting or dividing the conservative vote by supporting a third party candidate only empowers the left, and likely means the end of conservatism in America.

How Trump Wins the Debate

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

If she were debating John Kasich or Jeb Bush, neither the viewing audience nor the title-fight excitement of Monday night would be there. Specifically, what does Trump need to do? He needs to show that he can be presidential. He needs to speak with confidence, but not cockiness, and to deal with Clinton’s attacks directly, but with dignity and not disrespect. And humor always helps.

Is Trump the Only Republican Who Can Handle the Media Onslaught?

Matt Lewis, Roll Call

If we’re talking solely about 2016, you could argue that Trump might be the only Republican who can handle the media onslaught — and who has the media smarts to manage it. Republicans who voted for The Donald in the primary wanted a street fighter who could fight fire with fire. We will soon know if their wish came true.

Dear Hillary: Here's Why You Aren't 50 Points Ahead

Tom Bevan, Real Clear Politics

Hillary's personal history and the cross-currents of this election in an evenly divided and highly partisan nation make it difficult for her to appeal to enough voters to lead her opponent by 10 points, let alone 50.

Ben Kamisar, The Hill

Hillary Clinton's leads are shrinking in the battleground states of Colorado and Virginia, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University that also shows Donald Trump up in Georgia and Iowa.

Hillary Rodham Clinton, the 21st Century’s Richard Milhous Nixon

By Craig Shirley, Author and Reagan Biographer
Reagan biographer Craig Shirley puts Hillary Rodham Clinton on the couch and finds that Mrs. Clinton, having gone over 200 days without a press conference, manufacturing an “alt-right” movement that is out to get her and dismissing every criticism as personal seems to be headed well down the Nixonian path.

Sessions on Bushes' Trump snub: They've forgotten who elected them

Byron York, Washington Examiner

"I think they should remember the loyalty they were given by millions of Americans," Sessions said of the Bushes. "They should objectively analyze who is likely to advance best the agenda they favor and the agenda the Republicans who supported them favored. And that's clearly Donald Trump."
