Four years ago, then candidate Donald Trump participated in the Republican nomination and then at the White House on a platform centered on curbing illegal immigration and building a wall along the US-Mexico border.
But in 2020, Mr. Trump will no longer focus on this issue, which has affected his political rise as well as most of his first term as president.
According to data from Kantar/CMAG, a political ad tracking agency, a review by the Wall Street Journal found that immigration was the fourth largest issue mentioned in Mr. Trump’s 2016 campaign TV commercials, but it barely broke the top ten of this cycle name.
The focus of the Trump campaign is violence, violence has broken out in some protests across the country, work, government spending and China. It is worth noting that terrorism is not the third biggest problem mentioned in Mr. Trump̵
Tim Murtaugh, a spokesperson for the Trump campaign, said immigration “remains an important issue, and one that the president often resolves.”
