Saying it in a different manner.
Could Trump have run an implicitly White, right-wing populist, civic nationalist campaign and still be in the lead in the polls now, with a strong chance of winning?
Certainly yes, if the man was a serious thinker, rather than a crude Beavis-and-Butthead type jackass.
Having already outlined how he should have answered the Brown Star family, and how he should answer Ms. Girdle Fats’ attack on the Alt-Right (his Manchester speech being interestingly similar to the advice), I now move on to broader perspectives.
Immigration. Here is where Trump has had his greatest problems, re: policy.
He should have outlined his policies as follows:
1. A zero-tolerance policy for any further illegal immigration. But, instead of bloviating about a “big, beautiful wall” that “Mexico will pay for” he should have stated, calmly but firmly, that a border wall is a necessity, that we must do it regardless of the cost, that Israel has managed quite well with their wall, that since the wall is a national security priority it will come from the defense budget, and since Mexico bears much responsibility for the problem, we will recoup part of the cost through a tax on remittances, a tax on Mexican commerce, and – tying immigration to outsourcing – a punitive tax on American companies that move overseas (or to Mexico).
2. The illegals already here have to go. But rather than blustering about a “deportation force” he should have endorsed the reasonable policy of “self-deportation.” By enforcing immigration law internally in the strictest degree possible, by raising it to the level of a national emergency and investing the necessary resources, we will take away from the illegals everything that makes life in America worthwhile. They will be forced to go back where they came from, since all opportunities and benefits and necessities of living will gradually be withdrawn from them. Gradually over time, their numbers here will decrease as they return home. Absolutely no benefits for “dreamers” and no “in state tuition” and no looking the other way as companies hire illegals and no drivers licenses and no anything.
3. Birthright citizenship should be abolished. Legal immigration should be cut sharply, if not ended completely. No H-1B visas. No “high skilled” immigrants needed.
4. Muslim immigration: what he should have said here was: “as part of my plan to cut legal immigration, there will be no immigrants or refuges from any area that constitutes a terrorist threat.” Same effect, less “threatening” language.
Other issues: You know, when asked about the “nuclear triad” you should not say “the devastation is important to me” but rather: “given the security threats to America, including a nuclear-armed China and Russia, who are modernizing their nuclear forces, as well as North Korea and the long-term uncertainty about Iran, it is prudent for America to maintain all three parts of its nuclear triad. Indeed, we should be modernizing and expanding our arsenal, including bringing back high-yield multi-megaton thermonuclear weapons and MIRVed warheads for our ICBMs, and we should look into making at least part of our ICBM force mobile. Even in the absence of any immediate external threat, America should maintain the triad, as a hedge against any future, heretofore unknown, threats to our national security.”
And, also: no Twitter feuds, or comments about gushing blood, Mexican judges, or hand size.
But what do I know? After all, Trump is an alpha male of vastly superior racial stock, so let’s all follow the God Emperor – as he merrily cucks away right off the proverbial cliff.
