This is real. This is what he is going to try to do. We should believe it because he and his allies are saying it out loud.
Any sane, normal campaign would run from this at lightning speed. Yet Trump and his coterie of sycophants are embracing it. That should tell you something.
The only reason he’s going to get away with it is that the media lacks the imagination to raise the alarm bells for our democracy. Headlines like “Trump shares cryptic graphic” are everywhere. No. It is not cryptic. He’s telling us what he’s going to do and the media are treating him like there’s some great mystery to Trump.
We’ve never considered Trump to be anything other than exactly what he is. We know how to beat him. We did it in 2020 and we’re going to do it again next year. We’re not idealists. We’re realists. We’re down there in the gutter with Trump every day. Pitch in before our end-of-year deadline to the only organization in America fighting Trump on his terms and winning.
There is not a great mystery to Trump. He is an autocrat. A fascist. He tried to overthrow the election in 2020 — to the point that Colorado’s Supreme Court deemed him unfit to stand for election in 2024. He has a plan, Project 2025, to gut the government and replace every notable position of power with a loyalist who won’t tell him no. They’re already building it. Their plan is clear.
Trump’s plans for his dictatorship are not “cryptic” and they are not some kind of sideshow. This is the biggest clear and present danger to American democracy we have faced in any of our lifetimes. And if the media won’t call it out repeatedly, then we will.
Before the end of 2023, we’re asking you to stand with the only organization that’s been loud and clear about the Trump threat. What we do takes resources — and it’s clear that next year, we have a huge task ahead of us — telling voters what the media won’t or can’t say. We’re ready for the fight, but we need you to help us get there.
Trump’s Project 2025 is a scary, dystopian vision for an American autocracy. We’re all in to stop it. Anyone who isn’t… well, it’s up to us to make sure they’re with us.
