As I’ve written extensively in both left progressive sites like TD, CD, PR, and the opinion leading press (NYT and “The Post”):
The following are a few comments about ‘immigration’ and related “issues” that relate to a common theme (and ‘strategic narrative’) that accurately tags Emperor Trump for the negative effect he is having on our country:
