A lot of the energy surrounding the 2020 presidential campaign is focused on opposition to Donald Trump. That, in my opinion, is an error. Democrats need to focus, not on what he says, but on what we are doing. Elizabeth Warren was trying to make that point, when she suggested that Trump might be in jail in 2020. The crowd went wild! But is locking him up by then a good idea?

I personally would love to "lock him" and many of "them" up, but I think it is unlikely he will be......

My opinion hasn't changed that Pence is in up to his neck or deeper in everything Orange Judas has done and is doing.  However, he won't go down with him automatically.  We must work for it and we mist time it precisely - and if timing it precisely means timing it for November 2020, then it does, even though I'd love to see it sooner.

I also believe we must run on a combination of opposing Trump('s policies and pinning them to all Republicans) and our own achievements, combined with how much more we could achieve if we had a free hand.

What we totally must not do is run on any hint of bipartisanship, nor can we afford to allow bothsiderism.

Wouldn't that be nice if we had a grand revolution that tossed tRump's orange arse out of the Oval Office before the 2020 election? Just as long as it is bloodless, and gives this country a much better leader, one who actually cares about The People.

He feeds on the negativity, and the callous remarks he states. One action that would be great, is not have so much public (fawning) coverage for him for what he says on a daily basis,...and those awlful tweets! (faux).
I agree, that we need to focus on what's growing in the garden, rather than the weeds in the concrete.

Yes, the Dems need to focus on their platform, on what they ca, will do, to make things better, rather than get caught up in fending off demented tweets, and the like. They need to take the stage, and spotlight, away from Fat Orange!

I quite agree with Tom and Trump is, always was and always will be Trump.

The problem is those that put him there and those who keep him there. America can only win if we focus on getting stuff done without him or his base. They will bury themselves with their illusions, criminal behavior, lies and alternative facts if we keep exposing it, not tolerating it (ignoring them) and do what needs to be done - pump out appropriate health care, clean air, clean water, safe roads, bridges, tunnels, dams with plenty of mass transit alternatives, clean reliable energy, education which is engaging, and achieves learning, promotes intellect, and creativity, climate mitigation - ALL OF WHICH REPRESENTS INVESTMENT IN THE UNITED STATES AND PROMOTES THE MIDDLE CLASS.

He and the others will get locked up along the way, but we don't stop or take a backseat, halt or hesitate to his agenda. Like any other barrier, up and over, down and under, or go right around it without even a second thought. They can't be reasoned with, "children" can't be reasoned with. No one has power without we give in to it. It's not something a person has, it is something which is given. Stop giving.

I fully agree with Nameless and Jerry: Democrats need to give Drumpf the cold shoulder and focus on what the American people need and what this palnet needs, and present solid plans how to meet those needs and lead the country forward.

IMHO--we need energy about BOTH actions! He certainly needs to face justice for his horrible crimes and the crimes of his family AND...Democrats must continue to make plans to overturn every action he's taken...redeem our public lands, protect wildlife, rebuild the EPA, FIND THOSE MISSING CHILDREN....etc.

I think the best strategy would be to TOTALLY DIMISS Herr Drumpf and focus with a fierce tenacity upon ALL of the goals the would help the 99%. Drumpf merely gets FREE publicity in the media if we allow him to grandstand. We need to turn our backs to him and leave the lying SOB in the DUST!!!! We need to FOCUS on OUR GOALS! Screw Drumpf, let him blather alone.

I agree with what Joanne is saying about the other evil ones who work for and under tRump I feel that they're just as much involved with a lot of his evil doings and will end up paying for their sins too.
I'm hoping that it will be happening way before our next election. Maybe tRump and all of his cronies will all be taken away and we will have special election.
As for the the Democratic candidates who want to run, they need to be telling us what they will be doing for our country if they were to be elected into office. Not arguing back and forth with the idiot tRump. Them having battles with him is a waste of time. Time that is important for them to be coming up with ways that they can get voters on their sides.
We need someone that will get in there and turn our country around, facing forward and back on a positive road/direction and keeping it going that way too.
Thanks TomCat

I agree.  We must not engage with the giant orange when he is being childish and we must stick to our platform.

When those words 'lock him up' are spoken, I don't take them too literally, I hear them as a symbolic gesture towards his attack mode. Of course, I'd dance in the street if it came true, but, for today, I think Elizabeth is just putting some fuel in the tank, getting us to think about 'that guy being gone' from public life. So, it's a stand-in for action, the action of demoting this potus, eliminating his presence, and locking up his mouth as our nation's spokesperson. Either way, many of the people who are in defiance of tRump kind of like the sound of it. Especially since he used those words so frequently against the Democrats. Not sure if it's the wisest use of words, but, perhaps wisdom isn't getting to the majority of our population anyway,...... ???

The new American Dream = Trump taken out of office in a most conspicuously embarrassing way (ideally along with Pence) to the Big House where he wears orange for the rest of his miserable and despicable life.

“… I’d rather we run against him than a liar that claims to have opposed him …”

My thinking on Trump’s removal from office has change over the past year. I want the bastard out of the WH now but, it is problematic. It is better to run against the devil you know rather than a devil you don’t know! Also, since there are less than 2 years until 2020, there is insufficient time to really get to know Trump’s replacement if he is successfully impeached or goes to prison prior to the end of term. Dems have a big job holding his feet to the fire (of hell!) for that time. Dems also need to work on their platform for We the People and not just on the Despot-in-Chief. They must clearly articulate their plans unlike Trump in 2016, and HR 1 is a really good start. It may not make it through this Congress, but a solid Democratic congress (and ideally Democratic POTUS) should be able to put the people first.

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Lock HIM up!!!
