[Thread] Trump’s tweets this week perfectly exemplify his ONLY communications strategy – 'counterpunch when threatened,' even if your counter-argument is utter nonsense. Here are 6 examples from this past week alone...
1. New polls came out showing Trump losing to EVERY major Democratic candidate for president in 2020.

...So Trump tweeted: “Only Fake News has us losing!” and “If Mueller didn’t exist, I’d be winning in the polls!” and ”Something weird is going on at Fox with their polls!”
2. House Democrats used their constitutional subpoena and investigative powers in the exact fashion that Republicans always have.

...So Trump tweeted: “This is extreme Presidential Harassment” and “Democrat Congressional Hearings are #RIGGED!”
3. Costs associated with Trump's Tariffs wiped out any working class gains from his previously enacted Tax “Cuts”

...So Trump tweeted about giving the Presidential Medal of Freedom to the one economist who supports his trade & tax plans, but whose work is now widely discredited.
4. The US slipped to third place in a ranking of most competitive economies.

...So Trump tweeted: “If Hillary won, there’d have been a market crash!” and “European markets only rose on unfair to U.S. stimulus comments!”
5. Public support for Impeachment rose 10% in a single week.

...So Trump tweeted: “Only a few people even showed up to Impeachment rallies!” and “One poll says 70% don’t even want impeachment!”
6. Trump got caught claiming (again) that he’d accept illegal foreign help in 2020.

...So Trump tweeted “Crimes are all on the Democrat side!” and “Hillary acid washed emails!” and “Christopher Steele is a foreign agent!”
…Trump is neither strategic nor insightful. He is a reactionary that, when poked, immediately tweets the polar opposite of reality in order to muddy the narrative. His tweets just are ham-fisted efforts to propagandize to, and show-boat for his poorly educated base. [End Thread]
