President Trump is packing his schedule with rallies and other events as the Senate prepares for his impeachment trial — and allies say it’s a calculated blitz akin to the final days of his 2016 campaign.
Trump’s busy roster allows him to dominate the national news cycle, aides tell The Post, diverting attention from the looming impeachment trial and even from Democrats who want his job.
“In a lot of ways this reminds me of the final stretch of the 2016 campaign when he did six or seven events in a day and [Hillary Clinton] did maybe one,” said Jason Miller, a former Trump campaign spokesman and transition official.
“He’s superhuman in this regard,” an effusive Miller said. “I couldn’t do it. I’m 30 years younger, and I could barely keep up with him. He just has a different clock than any mere mortal.”
Early Tuesday, reporters and aides went home at 2:30 a.m. when Trump returned to the White House from the college football championship game in Louisiana — where he stayed an extra hour and a half among a supportive crowd that included actor Vince Vaughn.
That same crew was in for another long night Tuesday, with Trump scheduled to return from a Wisconsin campaign rally at midnight.
