Trump’s political team believes the voters in Ohio and Pennsylvania don’t care much about the Russia/FBI investigation. That they really care about jobs. President Trump will put that to the test.
President Trump is planning an extended road trip to sell his plans for repealing Obamacare, adding jobs and promoting infrastructure construction as he maneuvers around the scandal-obsessed media to talk directly to his supporters.
Part of the emerging travel plan is built on a West Wing belief that Trump voters care far more about his economic agenda than the fight with former FBI Director James Comey or even the Russia investigation.
“A lot of congressmen have told us that their constituents want to hear about the economy, not Comey,” said another source. “It was like that in the campaign. They didn’t care about media scandals, just what his plans were.”
