Donald Trump does not play defense. He is a true believer in the adage that the best defense is a strong offense. If attacked, he fights back harder, like when hit by the “grabbing” charges during the campaign. His ‘apology’ was an attack on Bill Clinton.
So his Tweet the other day that his base is “is far bigger & stronger than ever before” was completely out of character. Normally Trump would not even be responding to media reports that his base was shrinking. For him to take to Twitter to contradict this can only mean one thing:
Trump himself believes he is loosing supporters.
Good time to go on vacation.
