There's Always a Tweet

Yeah, need to start there, because interestingly, Trump never called the trip to the bunker "FAKE NEWS!".  Now he can't:
Don't throw away that shovel yet!

Waiting for the explanation of the White House lights going dark.  They blew a fuse and were all out until the stores opened in the morning?
But the thugs!  The violence!

About that:

Control, not crackdown:

Even in Dallas:

Oh, and:

After threatening states that he would dispatch the military to quell protests, President Donald Trump appeared to be privately backing off, with White House officials saying the response to demonstrations across the country indicated that local governments should be able to restore order themselves.

Honestly, who didn't see that coming?

The shift came as protests in Washington and other cities over police brutality against minorities proceeded Tuesday with relative calm, a striking contrast to the harsh crackdowns outside the White House on Monday night. The president wanted to make the aggressive action in the nation’s capital an example for the rest of the country, a senior White House official said Tuesday.

Well, Trump can control D.C.  He can't control the states, not even under the Insurrection Act.  Besides, he'd have to take responsibility if he imposed "I".  That's never gonna happen.  So what's next?

“I don’t know if there is a heck of a lot [Trump] can do to inform people about himself or substantially change his numbers particularly on favorability,” said Danny Diaz, who ran Jeb Bush’s 2016 campaign, making him acutely aware of the arrows coming Biden’s way. “I think the play is a clear one and an uncomplicated one. It’s one that’s been run before. And it’s to absolutely take apart the Biden campaign between now and Election Day, period.”

The throw-it-all-against-the-wall approach, Republicans say, will be unrelenting, personal, and not always coherent. Trump and his team and allies plan to cast for former VP as a cynical D.C. insider who cut international deals to benefit his own family, but also as a clueless dupe, incapable of completing sentences and haplessly manipulated by the radicals in the ranks of his campaign. On Tuesday alone, President Trump and his political team portrayed Biden as weak on crime and in league with violent demonstrators, but also also as a callous, tough-on-crime drug warrior determined to incarcerate the very people for whom demonstrators are rallying. 
Yeah, I don't think that's going to work out too well, either, especially after Lafayette Park:

And keep in mind, heavy voter turnout is not Trump's friend:
