Look Who’s Praising Trump Now!

Donald Trump

(Patriot.Buzz) – “Never-Trump” conservative critic Bill Kristol and Democratic strategist James Carville found themselves unexpectedly praising former President Donald Trump’s 2024 campaign strategy.

Although they both dislike Trump, they noted his campaign’s effectiveness and professionalism in a recent interview.

During an episode of “Conversations with Bill Kristol,” the two discussed how Trump’s campaign has outperformed Joe Biden’s in recent fundraising efforts, notably raising $76 million in April alongside the Republican National Committee.

They also pointed out Trump’s lead in crucial swing states and his advances among key voter demographics.

“The Trump campaign has been pretty, I say this with regret, but pretty competent and pretty professional, don’t you think, for the last year or so?” asked Kristol.

“I do, and it’s much better. I think Susie Wiles is kind of a professional, and it does seem … other people said the same thing,” Carville replied, adding, “I do think it’s more disciplined. I agree with you, and I think a lot of people agree with you.”

Susie Wiles, a Trump campaign adviser, has been a key player, especially in the strategy against Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, by providing critical information that Trump used to his advantage.

“And I think it’s led to some underrating of them in a sense. I think everyone keeps waiting for them to make some horrible mistakes, but they’re running a pretty … except for Trump personally, they’re running a pretty disciplined campaign,” Kristol observed.

Carville highlighted the campaign’s primary strategy: “What they did in the primaries was really remarkable,” he said. “We tend to write that off.

“He was an incumbent polarizing figure, you would say, ‘well he’s going to get what he starts out with,’ but actually he ended up with a lot. What they did to Ron DeSantis, what Susie Wiles did to Ron DeSantis, has to be one of the great cutting jobs I’ve ever seen in politics,” he explained.

The commentators also recognized the strategic value of Trump’s recent large rally in the Bronx.

“They’re kind of underestimated so Trump goes to the South Bronx for that you know 4,000 person rally the other night after the trial … He went to an 85% blue area,” Kristol noted.

He contrasted Trump’s willingness to campaign in heavily Democratic areas with Biden’s reluctance to engage deeply in Republican strongholds.
