  1. Unfortunately, the coverage on Trump is all twisted against him. I tend to watch the full speeches, read the candidate website descriptions of their policies, and review history about the candidates. In doing this, it is obvious that Trump would be superior than the others in assisting Americans and America. Shame on the media!
