We all know his tactic of offending, insulting, calling names to his adversaries…

Best Defense? Just Ignore him.

the novelty of it, probably fell well with some people in the 2016' election.

But know, he is well known as a disparaging lier, so this hideous and disrespectful tactic will surely backfire on him.

We all witnessed the then-candidate Trump firing all kinds of names, and pejorative adjectives on Hillary Clinton.

Unfortunately, his tactic seemed to work, as he won the election, and he is right now, the President of the United States.

But, please, let us not forget that in that election, he lost by a staggering difference of 3 million Americans, who voted against him in the popular vote.

In any other country, that abysmal difference would have been more than enough to ensure that Hillary Clinton — and not Donald Trump — would have been the elected President.

But Presidential elections in the U.S. are decided by an electoral voting system, antiquated and outdated, in our opinion, which granted the victory to Donald Trump.

A system that promotes the abstention of a large volume of electors concentrated in highly populated urban centers, by giving more value to votes coming from rural or less populated areas of the U.S.

Now, Trump is campaigning to be reelected for another term in the White House, but this time he will need more than simply calling names to Biden, the Democrat’s candidate, although he already started his dirty, name-calling tactic against his Democrat opponent.

Paraphrasing Michelle Obama during her speech at the inaugurating day of the Democrat’s Convention:

“So let me be as honest and clear as I possibly can. Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country. He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly in over his head. He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us.

It is what it is”.
