In times of crisis it’s not a bad idea to state the obvious, so here goes: Donald Trump can still win re-election but don’t bet the rent money on it. Everything that could go wrong — at least at the moment — is going wrong.
First, he was counting on a strong economy to take him to the finish line. He was planning to take credit for low
unemployment and high consumer confidence. He didn’t figure on running for reelection with a recession hanging over his presidency.
Instead of a booming economy, America is shutting down . Restaurants, movie theaters, airlines, hotels, March Madness, professional sports and a bunch of other businesses, big and small, have been hit hard.
