Now More Than Ever, Trump Must Stay Focused

After a strong march through the Republican primaries in which he made no mistakes, we enter a void of four and a half months before the GOP nominating convention.

With the discipline of weekly looming primary contests, the former president toed the line and made no mistakes. No side swipes at non combatant politicians.

No obiter dicta.

No name calling (except for his direct opponents). A disciplined campaign.

Now political entropy can set in.

Attacking Biden is a bit like kicking a corpse. For a restless mind like Trump’s, boredom can can set in. So can incendiary, self-immolating rage against the ongoing judicial persecution against him.

Trump needs a dynamic agenda of new policy proposals to avoid biting himself.

So far his campaign has been characterized by a healthy diet of new issues.

Still holing center stage: 

  • Illegal immigration
  • Inflation
  • Crime, and . . .
  • "Bidenomics"

But Trump has brought a new flavor to his campaign by injecting new and compelling issues that often straddle the partisan divide like: digital currency, internet privacy, human trafficking, fentanyl, forced unionization, gender craziness, education standards, affirmative action, alternatives to leftist colleges and universities, preserving police immunity from legal harassment, overuse of antibiotics, genetic alteration of crops, overuse of pesticides, tariffs to fund deficits reduction and debt repayment, opposition to the takeover of healthcare by the World Health Organization (WHO), and . . . empowering parents in the classroom.

These and other new issues will serve to control the public dialogue and debate.

And — just as important — they will keep Donald Trump’s fertile mind in the game and on the ball.

No chases after grudges against those who aggrieved him or blasts at random celebrities.

Just disciplined and focused issue ideas and debate.

No less an authority on Donald Trump than Jared Kurshner, once told me that his father-in-law, when flushed with success, often tries to one-up himself, taking on new challenges to prove to himself that he can.

Boredom leads to distraction.

Winning can lead to delusion and over-confidence. Keep your eye on the ball. Mr. President. We still have a ways to go before we reel this baby in.
