'Left will stop at nothing' to defeat Trump: Bauer

Trump rally 'super-spreader'A conservative activist doesn't expect the left's relentless attacks against President Donald Trump to let up between now and Election Day. In fact, says Gary Bauer, "literally every day" the public could see a new line of attack.

On Sunday, President Trump hosted his first indoor rally since June. He told a packed crowd in Las Vegas – where the temperature outside has been in triple digits recently – that the country was "making the last turn" in defeating the coronavirus. The Joe Biden campaign and some media outlets labeled the rally a virus "super-spreader." (Microsoft News image pictured)

Meanwhile, the media remains in a frenzy over excerpts of Bob Woodward's latest book, which quotes Trump as stating he downplayed the threat of the coronavirus because he didn't want to create panic in the country. Pointing to those alleged comments, Joe Biden and other Democrats accused the president of deliberately lying to the American people.

That media attack followed the release of a controversial article published in The Atlantic, which accused the president of making disparaging remarks about members of the U.S. military who died in battle.

OneNewsNow approached Gary Bauer, president of American Values, about these latest condemnations – but he points out the left has been relentless in its attacks since before Trump was even elected.

"They saw Donald Trump as an existential threat to them," he states. "They tried to do everything they could in his campaign in 2016 to stop him. After he won, they then tried one fact scandal after another."

Turning to the more recent anti-Trump accusations, Bauer describes the Woodward book and the Atlantic article as attempts to sway the electorate.

"Now here we are in the final 60 days [of the campaign] that will determine whether President Trump can continue to take the country down this new road of reform [through] all the things he's doing – and the left will stop at nothing," says the seasoned political observer. "I fully expect that literally every day there will be a new a line of attack to try to prevent the president from being re-elected."

A Fox News poll taken among likely voters last week and published on Sunday shows Joe Biden with a five-point lead (51%-46%) over Trump. With that poll in the mix, a RealClearPolitics average of polls puts Biden at +7.4.
