THE RACE TO THE WHITE HOUSE
Just when we think it can’t get any worse….it does. For Mr Trump, it is serious ‘gloves off’ time, with brutal fighting and a strong emphasis on nationalism and populism.
This past week alone has seen Trump invoke the power of second amendment supporters to do something about Hilary Clinton….he has accused Obama and Clinton as being co-founders of ISIS, he has called for new ideological screening tests or ‘extreme vetting’ of immigrants and has overhauled his campaign team for the second time in two months.
Mrs. Clinton, on the other hand, is the second most unpopular presidential nominee in history — after Mr. Trump.
