On Friday, both campaigns recapped the convention.
For all new readers: Welcome! I am currently on the mailing lists of Joe Biden and Donald Trump, though I have previously been on the mailing lists of 28 Democratic candidates! This blog breaks down recent emails with charts and excerpts. If you already know all of this, feel free to skip to the next chart!
It took some time for the Trump emails to kick in, so I started officially tracking his list on July 7. I have been tracking Biden’s for longer, but I will start comparing them as of July 7. All of these emails are going to a new email, and I have not donated, filled out surveys, signed petitions, or otherwise interacted with either candidate’s emails.
The rules I try to follow for the various categories are laid out in The Framework.
Donald Trump sent out 10 emails on Friday night, while Joe Biden sent out 4. Both were at the higher end of their daily email records.
In addition to asking for money, Biden asked me to sign on if I’m a vote for him in November.
Trump asked me to sign on if I stand with him against Biden and Harris. He also, again, asked me to become and OFFICIAL TRUMP TEXT MEMBER.
I don’t often show the rhetorical devices chart because it’s not all that interesting. Trump does all the things, focusing on all-caps, bad nicknames, and “this offer isn’t for everyone.” Biden occasionally does one thing, usually a “before I ask” or “first/then/now.”
However, there has been a decided increase in the number of hostile emails Trump is sending as the Biden campaign focuses directly at Trump. The Democrats were airing their grievances at Trump all week, so Trump had to make sure he had witty comebacks.
Did you watch Joe Biden’s speech?
It was a complete disaster. He is the most incompetent Presidential Candidate in American history and is nothing but a puppet for SOCIALISM. Joe and Kamala would DESTROY our great Nation and everything President Trump and Vice President Pence have built.Team Trump 2020
This is the FINAL day of the corrupt Democrat Convention and I want to do something HUGE to make a statement to all the Trump Haters out there.Donald J. Trump, President of the United States
This week, the corrupt Democrat Convention has confirmed what we already knew:
Slow Joe and Phony Kamala are not fit to lead this Country!
These two corrupt career politicians have made it clear that they want to protect sanctuary cities, protect criminals, take away your Second Amendment rights, and DESTROY America.Donald J. Trump, President of the United States
The corrupt Do Nothing Democrats spent all week insulting our great President during their Democrat Convention, but more importantly, they insulted YOU. Make no mistake, every attack against President Trump is really an attack on YOU and everything you believe in.
Sleepy Joe and Phony Kamala don’t care about YOU, Amy. They never have and they never will. ALL they care about is pushing their Radical Left agenda to raise your taxes, defund the police, and open our borders.
The Fake News media won’t report any of this, of course, because they are PARTNERS IN CRIME with the Democrats. They’re RIGGING the system against us, and that’s why President Trump has requested we reach out to REAL Patriots, like YOU, for your feedback…The Democrats are trying to sell Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as reasonable moderates, but everybody knows that they’re nothing but BIG GOVERNMENT SOCIALISTS.Team Trump 2020
No one is safe in Joe Biden’s America.
Not only is he encouraging the lawlessness in Democrat cities, but his campaign donated money to BAIL OUT DANGEROUS criminals, including a serial rapist, from jail. Disgusting.
Can you believe it, Amy?
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. The Radical Left is delusional and Joe and Kamala are a danger to the future of our Nation – they must be stopped. With your help, we can make a statement.
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are playing with fire, and unless we put a stop to it, they will burn the whole Country down with their deadly political games.Team Trump 2020
Projection, deflection, and bald-faced lies. When did the Republican party lose its integrity? They say the Democrats are rigging the election as they themselves openly right the election in plain sight. They say no one will be safe in Biden’s America while, at this moment, no one is safe in Trump’s America. They say Biden’s campaign is paying for bail for criminals while they are pardoning war criminals and con artists.
They say Biden and Harris are playing with fire as California burns. Millions of Republicans are suffering because they live in a blue state.
And this is the America they say will be better than whatever Biden and Harris have to offer.
I’m not buying it.
