Donald Trump is ready to talk about anything to convince his voters he’s changed

A lot is on the line for Donald Trump, who’s repeatedly signaled his desire to run for president again in 2020. Trump has been polling poorly for months, and recently some of his own supporters have started grumbling.

Many of his voters and supporters say his biggest asset is his ability to keep winning.

To do that, Trump has to figure out a way to reframe his performance in 2020 as something that has a chance of being very different from his 2017, even if that performance (the largest tax bill in U.S. history, chaotic government shutdown) leads to a renewed blowback. “I think he can do better,” said Samantha Michael, 36, a Trump voter.

To fix his image problem, Trump has increasingly talked about a video where he recounts watching his daughter Ivanka walk through various sets of doors.

“It gets forgotten because she was so beautiful,” Trump told reporters on Monday.

On Wednesday, Trump talked about the secret cam hidden in the Oval Office that’s designed to prevent surveillance. The goal is to prevent “minutes of viewing” in there, he said.
