The Trump campaign managed to put together a powerful video depicting an America where Joe Biden is president and the police are defunded.
It begins with an elderly woman watching the news in her home when a shadowy figure can be seen running by the window behind her. A burglar begins trying to pry open the front door so she grabs the phone to call the police.
There was one big problem: the emergency line was busy or unresponsive because of massive budget cuts.
The criminal bursts into the home and the video ends with the house phone dropping to the floor and with text across the screen reading, “You won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America.”
The refreshingly effective content comes just days after President Trump announced the replacement of campaign manager Brad Parscale with Bill Stepien, a 42-year old Republican political consultant and former Trump White House staffer. Parscale will continue serving in the same role he played in the 2016 election as the Digital Media Director.
Stepien became President Trump’s fifth campaign manager beginning with Corey Lewandowski in 2016 who was succeeded by Paul Manafort, Kelly Conway, and Brad Parscale.
Is this the first glimpse of Stepien’s creativity? We will find out in the coming weeks as both campaigns continue to spend heavily in several battleground states including the historically deep-red state of Texas which is believed to be a dead-heat at the moment.
Another cause for optimism is that the president reportedly raised $20 million from 300,000 donors in a virtual fundraiser. That nearly triples Biden’s biggest virtual haul of just over $7 million.
Are we getting the first glimpses of Stepien’s creativity? We will find out in the coming weeks.
