    • That people understimated Trump and that you portrayed him like some big baby. Hes more successful then every politician and he succeeded. Hes a businessman unlike the Clintons who built their fortune on bribes and blackmail.

Nothing will change if he were to simply just give in.

The nuclear weapons projects will go on for the empty plates at dinnertime for his people. The hostility and torture will continue as always. The world's largest prison is fully open!
