Trump core exposed: Lies & insults 'tell it like it is'
Robert S. Becker | nationofchange.org | 2019-06-10
Bluster boomerang on display: | Tabulating how little Trump has done for his voters' economic misery is not enough.

No infrastructure, no job training, no national educational push — surprise! Billionaires flourish while Trump families grit their teeth, still dreaming a cruel hustler's jingoism,…

Don't Blame Trump, DeVos, or Unions for Growing Opposition to Charter Schools
