What Trump can do

This letter is In reference to Barry McLeod-Hughes letter about Donald Trump flip-flopping. Trump hasn't flip-flopped at all. McLeod-Hughes says he's an independent yet there hasn't been a lot of independents to vote for so he's had to vote Democrat or Republican. I'm an independent as well, meaning I don't vote for the same party every year. I vote for the person, not the party, so I guess he and I flip-flop as well.

His positions on issues haven't flip-flopped either. Media twist and turn his every statement. Go to YouTube and search, "The untruths about Donald Trump," it has every twist.

It's quite fascinating. Shepherd Smith reported that a multi-million dollar "Principal PAC" will attempt to destroy Trump. That report can be found on YouTube. As a matter of fact, all candidates want open borders except Trump. He is the only one who will stop the immigrant tsunami coming to America.

All the candidates put together haven't accomplished what Trump has. His organization created 34,000 jobs last month; he has spent millions of dollars on his campaign, yet hasn't lost a dime. Think what he can do for our national debt, Social Security and vets? He has best-selling books, created successful TV shows, clothing and cologne lines and 21 skyscrapers in Manhattan bearing his name. Trump is a brilliant businessman. Vote for Trump.

Why the upset?

Why all the hoopla about what the pope of the Catholic Church said about the fence and being Christian? If you are Catholic you know that he was not speaking EX CATHEDRA, so he is just like any world leader, he is saying what his advisers tell him. If you are not Catholic, why does it bother you so much?
