Fellow Republicans who want a chance to run for Presidency in 2020 want Clinton to win, or else they will have to wait until 2024, as Trump would automatically become the party's nominee again in 2020 if he won this election.  All the talk about Trump being unfit for presidency belies this simple calculus.  Together with the Establishment of the Democratic Party, they have pushed down Trump's end of the playing field (to the right).  All Democrats naturally are pushing up Clinton's end of the playing field (to the left), as expected, since that was how elections in the past were run, influencing mainstream media editors to put out three to four articles critical of Trump every day, round the clock.  In addition, some Republicans have gone over to the left to push it up even higher.

Like the torrential downpours that have flooded entire cities, the mainstream media's Daily Dump on Trump (DDT) has reached historic, nay, epic proportions.  The world needs to coin a new phrase for this kind of massive media mendacity (MMM) likely to be sustained for the remainder of the campaign season.  If this is what democracy should be like, manipulative and cynical against any populist candidate who wishes to stand up for the people against the establishment, all dictatorships need to pay notice.  It might be a good idea.

To win the election, the Trump team will have to overcome first the uneven playing field by campaigning the old fashioned way through rallies throughout the country (indispensable), by the newest methods of social media (more efficient), and staying on message (which includes Trump's idea of keeping manufacturing at home and respect, not ridicule, for the Second Amenment), and above all, staying true to himself (Trump must remain Trump).  It is all right to make mistakes, and to apologize for them if unintended, but it would be wrong to stop being honest with himself, because people want an honest leader of their country.  

However, Trump should practice the statements he wants to hammer home, remember them by heart, and repeat them consistently wherever he goes.  The reason is obvious.  If he cannot remember them, how would he expect his listeners to do so?  Like Spartacus in his revolt against the Roman empire, he should say something like "Friends, fellow Americans, my dear countrymen, lend me your ears . . . " and they will not only do that, they will WALK to the voting booth, and VOTE for him as well.

Some say Bill Clinton paid Trump to run as President.

Isn't that very smart?

Got to respect Bill.

I have a critic for the mainstream media too

I think the main stream media have not done enough justice to the domestic programs of Hillary which is very very good for ordinary Americans.
