❝ Despite having more than $100 million tucked away and virtually no viable Republican opponent in sight, Donald Trump’s re-election campaign is taking no chances…Associated Press reported that the Trump campaign is culling its ranks down to the state and county levels, ensuring that only Trump loyalists will become delegates at the Republican National Convention…“We have a constant focus on tracking everything regarding this process,” Bill Stepien…told the A.P. “Who’s running, what their level of support for the president is, and what their vote counts are.”
❝ In practice, this operation is designed to prevent the messy drama of 2016, when anti-Trump delegates tried to stop Trump from winning the nomination…It is, in Stepien’s words, a “process of ensuring that the national convention is a television commercial for the president for an audience of 300 million, and not an internal fight.”
I presume you’ve already figured out that’s also how the Fake President prefers to run the country. With the aid of Mitch McConnell and Republican Senators, it’s a done deal unless enough obedient GOP puppets are voted out of office.

For some reason, I keep parsing “process of ensuring that the national convention is a television commercial for the president for an audience of 300 million, and not an internal fight” as “ensuring political correctness”.
I can’t imagine why…

President Donald Trump’s campaign manager predicted Saturday that the president and his family will become “a dynasty that will last for decades,” transforming the Republican Party while hewing to conservative values.
Speaking to a convention of Republican Party delegates in Indian Wells, California, Brad Parscale also said the campaign’s goal is to build a national army of 2 million trained volunteers, far beyond the president’s 2016 organization, that in California could help the GOP retake a string of U.S. House seats captured by Democrats last year.
“The Trumps will be a dynasty that will last for decades, propelling the Republican Party into a new party,” he said. “One that will adapt to changing cultures. One must continue to adapt while keeping the conservative values that we believe in.”
Parscale later declined to elaborate on his prediction of a coming Trump “dynasty,” or whether the president’s children could become candidates for public office.
When pressed on what he meant by “a dynasty,” Parscale said, “I think they are all amazing people with […] amazing capabilities.” https://apnews.com/bb8c30ee6b0b4d579f1a915871b1fa80
