That brings me to a radical idea I've been kicking around for a while now: Trump's best chance of winning would be to stop issuing statements ̵

Yes, such a strategy can lead to accusations that Trump is hiding from the media. Or that he walks away from things like building the border wall as his base clearly appreciates.
This gap seems quite clear as a result of people not like Trump and his general approach – bragging, bullying etc. – to the job. What better way to get people to focus on from the Trump presidency, they (the economy) likes than to reduce the part they don't like (Trump personally)?
To be clear: This will never happen . Trump is not capable of the type of discipline it would require. And although he was, other issues would probably throw up what he and his advisors would feel compelled to address.
But I suggest doing this point: Trump's biggest obstacle to another term is his personality and behavior in the office.
