WASHINGTON President Trump, keen to increase GOP turnout, offers voters a new round of tax cuts, lower drug prices and tougher border policies as he delivers his final message to protect Republican Congressional majorities.  Mr. Trump argues that the treatment of the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, is reason enough to defeat the Democrats in interim races. But as White House officials say they've seen data showing that interest in the Kavanaugh struggle is dwindling, referring to a decade-long allegation of sexual abuse he denied, the president uses his megaphone to spur him on Election to be given on 6 November

Mr. However, Trump's case, some of the plans he has published are not detailed enough or face huge obstacles.
The White House is still considering a plan that makes it difficult for migrants to apply for asylum. Another proposal to give what Mr Trump called "a very large tax cut for middle-income people last week" seems to have surprised both his staff and Capitol Hill. In an interview, Mr. Trump referred questions to a top economic adviser, who in turn drew reporters to Congress.
Neither the government nor the congressmen could describe essential elements of a new tax cut. What impact would this have on the deficit and on any timetable for action in Congress that is in the break and starts a lame-duck session in November?
On Thursday, Mr. Trump said he would try to cut prices for Medicare is paying for some prescription drugs that point to a democratic argument that it has not done enough to curb drug costs. However, this step is expected to trigger the resistance of the powerful pharmaceutical industry.
His proposal would essentially be a pilot program, with a plan to reduce costs over five years through pricing in other countries. A full program will not even be considered before the end of 2019 or 2020, and it would cover only some Medicare medicines in one part of the country
. Trump's opponents say the President's proposals are aimed at outsmarting the fears and credulity of the electorate. They said this week that they are considering a plan to block immigration ports for migrants, including asylum seekers, on the Mexican border.
"One of the benefits of office ownership, which can be severely abused and exploited, is the power to take drastic executive action, such as the cessation of asylum on the border, and use it to spread your final message," said Jake Sullivan , a former high-ranking campaigner for Democrat Hillary Clinton. "My hope is that fair people will see this for what it is: election campaign masquerading as a policy."
Bill McInturff, a Republican polling expert who conducts surveys for the Wall Street Journal, said Mr. Trump identifies the types of issues that can spark GOP turnout and mobilize voters.
Halting illegal immigration has been a GOP rally cry for a decade, and the cost of prescription drugs is important for women over 50 years and women with less than university degrees (19659004) "They try to be the slick, soft Republican and right-wing voters Pulling out the middle to say, "Oops, there's something at stake," he said.
White House officials said there was no formal strategy to expand the president's message before the campaign. "Still mobs, jobs and caravan," said a White House official. The first is an allusion to the rowdy demonstrators who appeared during the confirmation hearing of Justice Kavanaugh, and the latter a nod to a caravan of mainly Central American migrants making their way north through Mexico.
"President's policy creates record unemployment, higher wages and safer communities," said Bill Stepien, the president's political leader. "Since taking office, he has been pursuing an aggressive political agenda for the American people and he is not slowing down.The results are obvious: good politics is good politics."
Nonetheless, the president has expressed his frustration that his most recent Proposals were drowned out by the coverage of letter bombs sent to prominent Democrats.
At the White House on Friday, he said his drug plan "did not get the kind of coverage he should have had." With the arrest of Cesar Sayoc of Florida, the president hoped the coverage would "quickly disappear."
In the White House, some advisers have discussed the possibility that Democrats might win both the House of Representatives and the Senate, a development Mr. Trump's political plans stopped. Opinion leaders from both parties give Democrats a good chance to win the house. However, these people say that the Senate card favors the Republicans. Mr. Trump has told his advisers that he expects his party to pick up four Senate seats in Indiana, Florida, Missouri and North Dakota
. Trump's supporters say the political proposals he has put forward date to his earliest days as a candidate. From the moment Mr. Trump rode down the Trump Tower escalator in 2015 and entered the race, he made it clear that tax cuts and border security were the top priority, they said.
Bryan Lanza, a former Trump campaigner, said in an interview: "This is a continuation of a continued conversation he has held since his candidacy with the American people."
