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.

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.

Bowyer: The Prospects of Foreign Policy Under Biden


Former Vice President Joe Biden is running on a campaign of returning to the Obama years. But when it comes to foreign policy, that could end up being a disaster.

Under the Obama-Biden administration, the greater Middle East collapsed into revolution and civil war. Their administration helped overthrow the government of Libya, extending a war that has killed thousands and has drawn in a host of foreign actors. They gave arms to Syrian rebels—arms which later fell into the hands of terrorists. The Syrian Civil War has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands.

Biden’s plan includes a continuation of Obama’s interventionist ideology and a pivot away from the peace initiatives we’ve seen from Trump in the recent Abraham Accords. Biden has made a habit of picking fights and embracing bad actors.

Trump has brought the Middle East closer to peace. A President Biden may pull it back into chaos.

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.
