CNN White House correspondent John Harwood said President Trump's reelection strategy is to use his fixation on race to rile up white voters about "black and brown people" in the United States.
LEMON: The president is downplaying the pandemic as some kids with sniffles and rambling about race and black people thanking him and on and on. I would like to know who those black people are. But, why? Why is he doing this?
JOHN HARWOOD, CNN WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT: Don, the president is fixated on two distinct ideas. One is that he had this strong economy that was going to, he was going to surf to re-election until he was hit out of the blue by this pandemic.
Now, he didn't build the greatest economy in the world as he says but he is fixated on that. So, what he is trying to do is get back to that by in essence wishing the pandemic away trying to avoid focus on it and shift back to the economy.
The second thing he is fixated on is the idea that racial conflict works for him. It worked for him in 2016 to get the Republican nomination and the presidency. And so, he is beating that drum. Trying to alarm white voters about black and brown people in the United States.
The problem that he has is that the polls show it's not working, in particular it's not working among whites. He carried whites against Hillary Clinton by 20 points in 2016. In the polling that gap narrowed substantially for -- in the direction of Joe Biden. He's got big problems.

1) Trump didn't BUILD the greatest economic comeback, American people did. He just made sure gubmint did not stand in our way.
2) OKay, polls show those white voters he carried in 2016 are now going to vote for Joementia Biden. ===> Good luck with these capricious myopic morons. If Harwood is to be believed in the first place.
Yet another example of the Left accusing their opponents of exactly what they’re doing. Standard Alinsky tactic. Trump is fixated on race? Seriously?
The Democrat party is like a crazed monkey throwing its feces around its cage over race these days. White Privilege, “Institution Racism” blah blah blah. The only thing I’ve heard President Trump say about race lately is to mention the decrease in black unemployment he helped bring about prior to the Pandemic.
Can’t wait for November. Will vote for President Trump if the line is 2 miles long.
and these protests/riots aren’t meant to spin up the black vote??? especially since it all started right after Biden stuck his foot in his mouth with the “you aint black” comment.
Why does anybody care what a CNN Correspondent thinks? When is ATT going to fire Jeff Zucker and sell CNN?
RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. .RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM. RACISM.
Projection, its what Progressives do
According to Haidt, Conservatives understand Liberals far better than Liberals understand Conservatives. When it comes to morality, conservatives are more broad-minded than liberals.
:Harwood is either full of shit or he has an incredibly Biden-like attention or retention span.
This prof married liar was fired after he was caught having a
Affair with a Lefty Dem senator Cantwell .
Yet CNN hires the evil bastard .
Who is Harwood? What are his credentials. Is he KNOWN to be trustworthy? Never heard of him!
I also have to take issue with the Left’s constant mention of “Brown People”. What exactly are “Brown People”? Latino/Hispanics? People from India?
All the Indians and Latinos I know work their asses off and are successful. I don’t think many of them consider themselves to be aligned with the rioters (i.e. Liberal whites and blacks). I haven’t seen any “Brown People” looting anything, although there have been several cases of Mexican Americans sending out armed Militias to guard their neighborhoods
Racism is a weapon of the Military Industrial Complex/deep state and has been around for a long times.
scum is as scum does.
Yup, nothing says yer a racist like engineering the economy that had the lowest unemployment figs on record for people of color.
Meanwhile, on the pols busily destroying that economy...crickets.
And the Democrats' election strategy for any election - to use their fixation on race to rile up black and brown voters about white people in the United States.
Most stark may be Mr. Bidens towering advantage among white women with college degrees, who support him over Mr. Trump by 39 percentage points. In 2016, exit polls found that group preferred Mrs. Clinton to Mr. Trump by just 7 percentage points. The poll also found that Mr. Biden has narrowed Mr. Trumps advantage with less-educated white voters. [Emphasis added]
The exodus of white voters from the G.O.P. has been especially pronounced among younger voters, an ominous trend for a party that was already heavily reliant on older Americans. [Emphasis added]
Fifty-two percent of whites under 45 said they supported Mr. Biden while only 30 percent said they supported Mr. Trump. And their opposition is intense: More than twice as many younger whites viewed the president very unfavorably than very favorably. [Emphasis added]
(hattip to John Binder @ Breitbart)
I think hes confusing Trump with the Democrats.
for a dummiecrap to say that Trump is fixated on race is projection by a collectivist lefturd loon who wants group warfare
Ask him how Maria Cantwell is doing
