The former president, Donald Trump, is maintaining his controversial and divisive rhetoric despite advice to pivot towards a more moderate stance for a broader appeal.

His campaign is focused on building a general election infrastructure and securing the Republican National Committee.

“Donald Trump is Donald Trump. That’s not going to change,” senior campaign adviser Chris LaCivita said. “Our job is not to remake Donald Trump.”

Trump’s speeches often include attacks on opponents, false claims about the election, and extreme statements on various issues.

“The campaign’s pivot,” LaCivita said, “is just a realization that we’ve already secured what we need to win. That manifests itself in not only the messaging but the mechanics.” He said to expect “more of the same” after Trump clinches the nomination, which is expected later this month.

“Donald Trump is still Donald Trump — the same extreme, dangerous candidate voters rejected in 2020, and they’ll reject him again this November regardless of the team he has around him,” Biden spokesman Kevin Munoz said.

Americans “deserve a president who will not sugarcoat what’s happening in the world,” Trump spokesman Steven Cheung said.

Despite concerns from some Republicans about his electability, Trump’s campaign remains loyal to his unapologetic style.

Trump’s approach contrasts with advice to focus more on a positive vision for a second term.

“At some point (Trump) needs to take the spotlight off himself,” former Virginia congressman Tom Davis said.

“Do you want a president who wakes up every morning thinking about the American people?” North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper asked. “Or do you want a president who wakes up every morning thinking about himself?”

“When you have the kind of numbers Biden has, what people need is about 70% positive, 30% anti-Biden,” former Speaker Newt Gingrich said.

“Everybody that wants to give him advice, he beat like a drum,” Sen. Lindsey Graham said.
