Embattled Trump returns to strong suit: campaigning

Embattled Trump returns to strong suit: campaigningWith his presidency in turmoil and political adversaries baying for blood, Donald Trump is trading the Washington mud pit for more soothing surroundings: a campaign stage and crowds of thousands chanting his name. Trump hits the campaign stump for a rally in Melbourne, a city on Florida’s famed Space Coast, at 5:00 pm (2200 GMT), not as candidate but the nation’s commander-in-chief seeking to reconnect with his tribe of largely white, male middle-class voters. The rally locale had all the flair and anticipation of a campaign event from 2016: Thousands of supporters in line, women wearing red “Make America Great Again” hats, men in “Bikers for Trump” shirts, toddlers asleep on parents’ shoulders, and plenty of Trump merchandise for sale.
