As President Trump pursues the election campaign to oust Republican candidates across the country – mainly in red states – he appears to be back in his original political state: the unconventional candidate, the spokesperson for the victims, the anti-politician, which can solve the problems of the country.
Although he allegedly overwrites rallies in support of Congressional Republicans, most of his speeches make only temporary references to the candidate of the hour. He will stage a candidate for a short speech ̵
Last month, Mr. Trump revealed in his rally speeches a new argument: "This will be a choice of Kavanaugh, the caravan, the law and order and common sense." The sentence first appeared at afor candidate of Republican Senate Matt Rosendale, but was repeated in later campaign stoppages.
"Kavanaugh" refers to Judge Kavranaugh of the Supreme Court, which was short of the Senate earlier this month. Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual misconduct by several women, including Christine Blasey Ford, who testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee that Kavanaugh sexually abused her in September. Mr. Trump has repeatedly said at rallies that the allegations against Kavanaugh were part of a democratic hate campaign.
The President has intensified his attacks on Democrats in recent weeks, calling them "naughty packs" who are not able to lead. Mr. Trump has now appointed two conservative judges to the Supreme Court, who fulfill a promise to the Republicans. His attacks on the Democrats and his emphasis on judicial appointments are reminiscent of the 2016 campaign.
In this election, Trump called his opponent "Crooked Hillary" and inspired the "Lock Her Up" song, which linked the Democrats to corruption. He also published a list of potential Supreme Court decisions. He said he would consider if he would be elected.
The "caravan" refers to a caravan of migrants from Honduras on their way to the American border. Mr. Trump tweeted on Monday that the United States will begin cutting aid to Central American countries such as Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador after being "unable to stop people from leaving their lands" and.
Mr. Trump has been dealing with inflammatory rhetoric about immigrants since the fall of the Trump Tower elevator in 2015 to declare his candidacy for the president, calling Mexican immigrants "murderers" and "rapists." Mr. Trump warned of dangerous illegal immigrants pouring into his country during his campaign and made the iconic promise of building a wall on the border between the US and Mexico.
In today's election campaign speeches, Trump often refers to the wall, saying the construction is already under way. He has also said that the Democrats will never vote for the financing of the border wall, while the Republicans will do so. Trump has also accused all Democrats of wanting to abolish US immigration and customs, an attitude that is advocated by some progressive Democrats but not by the entire party. He also repeatedly and wrongly said that Democrats support "open borders".
The President has repeatedly said that the Democratic Party is "the party of crime" while Republicans focus on "law and order". At ain late September, Mr. Trump said the Democrats would "open the borders of our nation, starve our law enforcement officials".  The campaign rhetoric of 2018 is essentially that of 2016, updated for the current political context. Now Mr Trump has achievements that he can highlight, such as negotiations on foreign trade and tax reform. He may also call for the repeal and abrogation of the Affordable Care Act, which the Republicans failed to enforce in 2017.
The Supreme Court, Immigration, and Crime 2016 elections were conducted for Mr. Trump. He bets that this strategy can work again in the Midterms 2018, even if his name is not voting.
