There is only one scheduled event for Trump, per his campaign site, in Everett WA on Tuesday. And Republicans are seeing red about where he’s been up until now.

The celebrity businessman’s schedule has again raised eyebrows this week, with a rally Tuesday in Austin, Texas, and another Wednesday in Mississippi. Both states have favored Republicans consistently for decades and are expected to land in Trump’s column.


“In Texas we wanted to highlight border security to a larger audience, and in Mississippi we wanted to present Mr. Trump’s message to the state and nationally,” said Trump’s spokesman Jason Miller, “which is a sharp contrast to the napping, vacation style that Hillary Clinton is bringing to the campaign trail.”

…“What he’s not realizing is, there’s a cost to everything you do. Every additional rally gives you a chance to create a controversy or make a mistake,” said Matt Mackowiak, a Republican strategist based in Austin. “I can probably think of eight or 10 things that would be a better use of his time. Debate prep, policy briefings, meetings with staff. Literally, taking a nap would be a better use of his time.”
