Donald Trump wants American voters to believe that he is a changed man, but the only thing that has changed is his campaign team. Since he declared his candidacy, his campaign team has undergone several by-pass surgeries. It is logical and an open secret that things are not working as planned.

The Problem With Political Jokes is They Get Elected.

donald trumph
Abdulai Mansaray, author It is very easy to conclude that the American Presidential Election is between Democrats and Republicans, or Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. This year’s election goes farther than that. For the first time in its history, America elected a black man, not once but twice to the White House.
