Lanhee Chen: A Study in Contrasts

Tuesday night’s presidential debate was a study in contrasts: The accomplishments of a president over the last 47 months, against a politician who’s been in politics for 47 years.

Two more presidential debates are scheduled in the coming weeks, and the task for President Trump is clear: He must continue to emphasize his accomplishments while sharing more with the American people about his plans for the next four years.

The president has plans to lower the cost of health care and make our health care system more accessible and transparent; plans to lower taxes for middle-income Americans, while continuing to cut red tape for job creators and entrepreneurs; and plans to hold China accountable for its misdeeds and address other geopolitical challenges around the world.

Looking ahead, President Trump should spend more time emphasizing these plans and talking about where he would lead the country in a second term. That’s a recipe for winning not only the debates and the undecided voter—but perhaps the election too.
