Hugh Hewitt: Trump’s Biggest Bet

With just days now before Election Day, President Trump has been making his biggest bet: that the portion of the American electorate living between the coasts knows what is in its own best interest.

He thinks these Americans know that their interests—economic, cultural, familial—diverge sharply from the coastal elites.

Trump has taken up the case for folks between the coasts and states at the margin. He’s counting especially on voters in Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin—and turnout is going to be enormous.

The turnout issue means that—for first time since I started watching politics closely—a blowout in either direction is genuinely possible.

I hope you’ve made your plans to vote—and make sure to remind those in your world to get out and vote.

America is at a crossroads—with two starkly different visions for the future of the nation we love.

Whatever the result: Don’t regret not doing your part.

Jerry Bowyer: Biden’s Dangerous Spending Plan

The Obama administration was once defined by low growth and high spending. When Obama took office, our debt-to-GDP ratio was around 90 percent. Today, it has passed 105 percent.

While high debt is always a risk, you can to some extent outrun it with high growth. Under President Trump, while spending increased, it was partially offset by relatively high growth. The Obama years were bad for our economy, but our debt was low enough that we were able to avoid economic collapse.

Neither of these would be the case under a Biden administration. Our total national debt is higher than ever in peace-time, and Biden’s plan will only raise it dramatically further. He’s proposing over $5 trillion in new spending and the largest tax increase in 70 years.

Low growth, high debt and a growing tax burden: that’s a very dangerous combination, and that’s exactly what we should expect from a Biden presidency.

Hugh Hewitt: The Case for a Second Trump Term

The 2020 election is now just days away.

Here’s my short case for backing the Trump-Pence ticket and voting for Republican senators and representatives in your state.

On the coronavirus pandemic, Trump has done as well as any president could have done—and certainly better than Joe Biden.

You’re safer and more secure because of the Trump military buildup.

The president has made the necessary pivot with China—and he’s brokered the first major breakthrough peace deal in the Middle East in 25 years.

On the economy, Trump and the GOP succeeded in bringing unemployment to all-time lows early this year. Now, even amidst the pandemic, the economy is bouncing back.

Your First and Second Amendment freedoms are much stronger as well, because Trump has bolstered the Supreme Court and federal courts with strong judges who honor the Constitution.

Whatever you think of Trump personally, there’s no question: His policies have been good for the country.

Join me in voting for a second Trump term.

Hugh Hewitt: President Trump and the Elites

If President Trump makes a comeback—and pulls off yet another upset victory on November the 3rd—it’ll be because he relied on the disgust of the elites.

Trump will again run on a platform of America first, and on rebuilding the economy he built once until it was shuttered by the novel coronavirus. He’ll point to his clear-eyed view of today’s aggressive and assertive Chinese Communist Party and the strengthening of our military build-up: a growing Navy, the Space Force and the revitalized nuclear deterrent.

Trump will also run on his massive deregulation, and the appointment of justices and judges who are faithful to the Constitution.

An often hysterical media endlessly chants the same anti-Trump refrains.

But voters have to ask themselves: Which man do they want squaring off against Xi Jinping, rebuilding the economy, appointing judges, funding the military?

Trump can embrace the disdain of the elites. And—yes—he can win again.
