Even as the ghost of Robert Mueller's investigation has disappeared, Trump plans to turn the investigation, the Democrats' constant allegations of misconduct and media coverage into a new slide, said half a dozen consultants and consultants. He has already signaled that he will arm the results and addresses those who ordered the investigation and Democrats he has led politically.
The counter-offensive has worried some advisers who might cross the president, which reduces a clear victory by sinking back into old grudges demanding extreme steps to punish those he sees as enemies.
The conclusion of Mueller's investigation, without any evidence of collusion, could provide an opportunity to overcome a dark period and head for a sunnier, more disciplined presidency, a result some consultants have privately requested.
Maybe for another president
Instead, Trump seems to be ready to relive the first two years of his presidency and the "witch-hunt" investigations that have tarnished her, this time through the lens of personal and political justification , His public statements since his Attorney General summarized the report for Congress on Sunday have all threatened to amortize ̵
" There are a lot of people out there, some very very bad things, very bad things, I would tell treacherous things against our country, "a furious Trump said Monday at the Oval Office, where he met Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. "We've been through a time of really bad things, these people are certainly being looked at."
So far, there is no indication that Trump wants to order the counter-investigation he has initiated, but as he prepares to wage a tough fight for re-election, the president and his campaign advisers see the conclusions of the report as political gold, even if it means that the remaining issues of Russian electoral interference and legal misconduct in the political bloodstream will be preserved for many years to come.  Just as Trump was performing a winning tour in the months following the 2016 election, experiencing the biggest hits again and attacking those who said he could never win, his upcoming rallies are likely to resemble a winning round The Mueller probe concentrated – such could extend to November 2020.
The result is likely to be an amplification of the President's sharp criticism of Democrats and the media, attack lines that were consistently an effective feed to break up hello's political base.
A Trump counselor speaking to the president regularly told CNN's Jim Acosta that he should expect Trump and his team to "surprise and shame the media," adding Mueller to the conclusions in the Russia investigation caused.
Even as the president on Sunday called the investigation "illegal abolition of failure," sources close to the president said they would put less on Müller and more on the exonerating conclusions of the investigation and on Democrats and Democrats Media.
On the Trail
The first display of this news after Mueller will appear on Thursday when the President gathers his followers in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
"I think it's likely to be the second most exciting Trump event after Election Night's victory in 2016," said Jason Miller, a top-notch communications consultant for the 2016 Trump campaign. "This is a cloud that over the first two years Now this cloud has been lifted – and not only suspended, but in such a complete and convincing way. "
Those around the President await him To turn the results of Müller's investigation – at least those revealed in Attorney General Bill Barr's letter – into a political cudgel he will use to defend his rhetoric, the Democrats and the media is attacking to take it to a new level by equating the punditry and speculation about it with the investigation of the investigation, which in no way predicted a result.
The President's campaign has already begun to issue a series of fundraising e-mails about the investigation. And on Monday, the campaign communications director emailed the television news producers, suggesting that several Democratic legislators and one former CIA director should no longer be considered credible guests, allegedly a collusion between the Trump campaign Russia and Russia had weakened and ultimately proved to be so central to Trump's 2020 news, as Hillary Clinton accused in 2016 of committing misconduct.
"The fact that the entire party of the Democratic Party spent every moment of awakening through the megaphone of the national media" The last two years of screaming about Russian collusion will definitely be an issue, "said Tim Murtaugh, communications director of campaign communications , about the 2020 campaign. "We have heard this indictment for two solid years. I think you may hear a little bit about the fact that everything is untrue. "
However, the rhetoric will not be enough for some supporters of the president." I think we need to investigate the investigators, "said David Bossie, former deputy campaign supervisor of the President and an informal adviser. "I think there must be accounting. People must be blamed for what they have done to this country in the last two years. I'm not ready to pass it. I think that is a very important element of what we must do.
"How does he mess this up? "
But other Presidential allies are already beginning to be cautious, some privately worrying that, although the report was good news for Trump, who could strengthen him before the last 22 months of his term, he has one A way will be found to dampen the positive coverage.
A former employee joked on Sunday after Barr released the key findings from Müller: "How can he mess this up now?"
These followers of Trump say they hope that the president evolves and focuses on his achievements in office and economic growth, which could be central to a company's second term.
"I hope now that we went beyond this investigation and he is not personally charged to cooperate with a hostile foreign power, which, in my opinion, clearly gave no collusion and we At some point, this will need to be accepted and continued, "said Republican Florida Rep. Michael Waltz on CNN. "I hope the tone and the rhetoric will change."
In the White House, as satisfaction with Mueller's findings diminished, some advocates expressed the wish that Trump seek a more traditional presidency focused on a sober policy rather than chaotic attempts to change the narrative.
This includes focusing on securing a trade agreement with China – an outcome that Trump is keen to achieve, believing it could strengthen the stock market and thus its political prospects. The volunteers also observe a long-delayed infrastructure boom and steps to lower drug prices, both of which are considered ripe for cooperation between the two parties. He is also expected to do several overseas trips in the spring.
But the Democrats have made it clear that they intend to continue their investigation into the Trump administration, and there is little evidence that Trump will take on a rather statesmanlike air. His behavior in recent weeks has not shown that a president wants to put order back on his agenda.
Last week, he was dominated by attacks on the recently venerated Senator John McCain, a feud that unleashed widespread condemnation and distraction from his intended message of a resurgence of manufacturing in the heart of the country.
At the end of the week The government's foreign policy apparatus seemed to be in disarray when Trump tweeted abruptly that he would lift new sanctions against North Korea. It took hours for the officers to clarify what Trump was talking about, which turned out to be unannounced measures in the Ministry of Finance's work.
Forward, it is not clear Trump will cling to every unique messaging strategy, especially as Democrats continue to be interested in accessing the full Mueller report and launching their own investigations in Congress.
In the midst of its winning round, Trump will house more than a dozen Republicans in Congress at the White House on Tuesday afternoon for a meeting on the trade agreement between the US, Mexico and Canada, calling the pact its highest legislative priority in the summer.
Although some White House officials call trade agreements with China and the country, North American neighbors will be among Trump's top agenda items over the coming weeks, with the president showing few signs of an upcoming pivot.
To replace Sunday night, the White House announced the adoption of Trump's revised agreement with Canada and Mexico as the immediate focus of Mueller's report.
"After the investigation, it is time to move on past the USMCA, building new infrastructure and reducing drug prices," the White House wrote in the talks.
But even the relatively quiet trade area could be controversial on Capitol Hill.
A White House official said the team was also prepared for the possibility that the Democrats would unite against the deal to deny Trump the political "victory." Democratic lawmakers could face even greater pressure not to cooperate with Trump while berating them for supporting the investigation in Russia.
