  • The world needs Donald J. Trump

    Updated Oct 25, 2023

    Not only does America need President Trump, but the whole world does. He understands "we the people." Seventy-four million plus citizens elected him in 2016 because his message was simple, to the point and forceful. Many of us remember and he did not deviate from his promises. It is evident that he didn't realize how deep the swamp was at the time and was met with opposition at every turn. Now he knows. I am sure that he will make a clean sweep of all, including leftover staff from the Obama regime. I feel certain that Obama...
