2016 repeat? Trump revives Clinton playbook to battle Biden

NEW YORK (AP) — President Donald Trump and his allies have dusted off the political playbook that helped them defeat Hillary Clinton four years ago. They have been expanding it in recent days as they try again to frame the election as one between a dishonest establishment politician and a political outsider being targeted for taking on the system. This time the establishment opponent is Joe Biden and the so-called outsider is the sitting president of the United States. The accusations include a “deep state” conspiracy against Trump as well as a return to allegations of personal and family corruption by his opponent.
