Donald Trump won in 2016 by running against Washington, D.C. He will need a different strategy in 2020, because now he is Washington. And Washington, with its trillion dollar deficit and ill-advised quarrels with China and Iran, is a mess.
Enter Ilhan Omar. This congressional fruitcake is the perfect target for Trump to rail against. I am convinced that Omar genuinely detests Trump. Although Trump feigns equal contempt for her, I suspect that he is privately delighted that the People’s Republic of Minneapolis sent her his way.
