Donald Trump is the ultimate shyster. The Electoral College strategy that he stumbled into worked out for many reasons on all sides that does not bear re-evaluating. Suffice it to say, it can work again if we forget the definition of insanity: doing things the same way and expecting a different result.
The media gave Trump a pass early on by not explicitly calling him a racist. It seems, though, that his latest racist tweets hit a nerve with the traditional media.
