Is Trump attempting to sabotage the Republican Convention ??

Some say he is already attempting to sabotage the USPS, the Census, and the next election, but ask why he would attempt to sabotage the Republican Convention?

At first, their Convention was going to be in Charlotte, NC but Trump did not like the rules the Governor of NC was setting down. So, he requested they move it to more friendly confines in Jacksonville, FL. But now, he is requesting that they have it on the lawn in front of the White House. Why?

Could it be that he does not want to gamble with the possibility of something like that which happened in their Convention in 1976, when Ronald Reagan was nominated to challenge Gerald Ford for the nomination? Perhaps he would like to remove all risks from his nomination?

Just a thought.

1. Think like a narcissist

He desperately wants a party in front of a packed crowd of cheering fans.

Everyone else is telling him he canít have one. So he will throw his own. Safety be damned.

2. This. And the Democratic Governor of NC wouldn't guarantee they would allow his

adoring crowds. Then Florida wouldn't guarantee crowds of adoring crowds. It's almost like he doesn't realize there is a pandemic out there.

3. By refusing to get monthly direct checks to the seniors

When they gave the unemployed $2400 a month and the seniors got a one time $1200 check making theirs at $300 a month. By doing this he's sabotaging Florida and other states where seniors will play a huge role in voting out trump and republicans after getting screwed over again with this stimulus bill.

4. He thinks this is a reality show, so he is thinking of ratings, of crowd size and of visuals.

I'm not being flippant. Just listen to him taking about ratings when asked about coronavirus. His mental deterioration has got to the point where he can't answer any simple questions with clarity. The last two weeks--his rapid decline is especially noticeable. He has lost grip on reality.

5. I think the 24 hour news cycle makes the conventions irrelevant

I don't think modern day politicans have the courage to try to pull a fast one at the convention. For one thing, there is too much money put into the primary process. The second--and probably more important--any such attempt would be leaked and there would be no surprise.

6. In the past, conventions have been about

Praising the great accomplishments of the potential president and about plans for the future. Speaker after speaker stand to lavish praise on the candidate. Perhaps the Trump team is having a hard time figuring out how to pull that off with this President. A case of the less said, the better.

7. Are you serious about the White House lawn, kentuck?

Donald is so bizarre, I can't tell fact from joking around anymore.
