Based on Trump’s strengths and the weaknesses of the Democrats' agenda, I arrived at the four most powerful issues on which Trump should campaign.

In his first 27 months in office, President Trump has accumulated an unprecedented list of accomplishments, relating to illegal immigration, taxes, jobs, foreign policy, the Supreme Court, etc. His accomplishments keep growing, despite his having to battle virtually the entire political establishment and media elite who work endlessly to discredit him.  The best example of this is the Mueller investigation, which ultimately was unable to uncover any evidence of collusion between Trump and the Russian government.

Trump’s next big opponent will be whomever he faces for reelection in 2020. Based on Trump’s strengths and the weaknesses of the Democrats' agenda, I arrived at the four most powerful issues on which Trump should campaign.

Border security. Arguably, Trump’s biggest call for support in 2016 was his promise to build a wall along our southern border. Not only Democrats but also Republicans have failed the American people in securing our border from illegal migrants and from the flow of drugs and weapons across it. In my opinion, Trump is a hero for sidestepping Congress and taking it upon himself to ensure the wall’s construction. Whether outwardly or privately, I surmise that the majority of Americans are grateful for Trump’s persistence on this issue.

Economy. Almost immediately after Trump was elected President, the economy started to take off. Optimism about the prospects of a freer and more dynamic economic policy caused the stock market to soar. At the same time, Trump’s populist economic principles have brought jobs back to the United States with the termination of NAFTA and the adoption of fairer trade policies. Rust Belt voters cannot be displeased with the results of electing Trump, and they should be reminded constantly of the economic success that he has brought to the Midwest.

Dishonest media/Mueller witch hunt. Even Liberals have to agree that the media is the most dishonest industry in the nation, and pointing that out will give Trump an edge over his Liberal opposition. The media salivated for two years for a Mueller bombshell that never came; they purposely misinterpreted Trump’s comments regarding the Charlottesville riots in perpetuating the “fine people” hoax; they continue to claim that Trump called all Mexicans rapists, etc. Now that the Mueller report is off his back, Trump should attack the media and the establishment elite relentlessly for trying to de-legitimize him and potentially remove him from office.

ISIS/North Korea. Foreign policy has been one of Trump’s biggest assets in proving to the Left that he is stable and fit to be the leader of the free world. He successfully eliminated all enclaves of ISIS territory and became the first US president to hold a summit with a North Korean leader, which he has already done twice. This is a slap in the face to those who thought Trump was liable to start a nuclear war with North Korea because of his “unhinged” nature - something that Trump should have fun pointing out during his upcoming campaign.
