The crowd on the street protesting him was louder and more lively than the handpicked crowd that was listening to Trump’s speech. Trump didn’t do himself any favors with a dull speech that had no passion or energy.
It has become a microcosm for this election. As Donald Trump struggled to show any interest, a loud and rowdy large crowd was making its voice heard. The energy is with the anti-Trump coalition in 2020. Trump sounds tired and beaten, as the majority want their country back.
