Donald Trump in Detroit

That’s the sort of unpredictability that’s worried the risk-adverse Clinton crowd all along. Trump is like a scrambling quarterback. You set up all the usual defensive schemes to handle the most likely plays. But then your opponent does something totally unexpected, eludes defenders and pulls off a big play.

That’s what Trump did with his Mexico City junket. He left the much-traveled Clinton team explaining, well, there’d be plenty of time to work with neighbors later. They dismissed it as a photo op, as if 94% of Clinton campaign stops aren’t. Critics wondered how many U.S. voters Trump would find south of the border. Ha-ha.
