Be very afraid: Donald Trump's closing message ahead of midterm election stokes fears of immigrant ‘invasion’ as White House hawks plan more skewering

The messaging is so loaded with violent imagery that even the booming economy or last week’s massacre at a synagogue come a far second. As far as Trump’s White House and his campaign is concerned, the midterms and the 2020 elections are a culture war whose time has come. If it was vicious in 2016, it’s not getting better.
