Setting up a private sever and private clintonemail.com domain for conducting state business implies two things: 1] personal interest and personal gain outweigh the risk to US information security 2] gross negligence involved in handing over the management of public interest technology infrastructure and confidential information to non-state actors (ie, private citizens that are not state department employees and therefore not vetted to manage state-level information assets)

2 alone would get anyone fired for intentionally violating security policies, #1 is a path to an idictment from public office

Go away for a few weeks, come back and wow.. can't believe what Im reading.

I don't think Hillary is any saint, nor is any politician, and certainly not a multi-bankrupt, multiple failed businesses, "business" man who has a history of screwing over precisely the kind of people he is trying to garner votes from.

It would be nice to see America change up a bit, however more Sanders type change than electing someone who talks like a dictator, and has exposed a racist, xenophobic, ill-informed underbelly that most people in the rest of the world thought was the stuff of movies and nightmares.

Here are your choices, things as they are more or less, or someone for example that doesn't even understand the basics of America's relationship with its allies such as Japan, where many of us live.

I did say it. Not happy with my comment? Well....."

Doesn't bother me in the least if you want to make yourself look weaselly and evasive.

You speak German? Wow!

Actually no, but I do know what kind of people like to use words like "volk." Other than Germans, that is.

If Clinton could get something done and was mostly hated and Reagan who was mostly hated and Bush as well, then Trump should do equally as well.

That comparison would work if Reagan and Bush had been hated by Republicans and Clinton had been hated by Democrats.

Not that hard, I know you libs think that it's impossible, so as a businessman, he'll work it out.

Oh! He's a businessman! I see! That makes all the difference. Hang on, though - Dick Fuld, Fred Goodwin, Bernie Madoff and Sir Philip Green are or were all businessmen too. You'd trust any of them to get things done? Also, it's obvious from his record of bankruptcies, losses, lawsuits, job cuts and generally screwing people over that Trump is an absolutely terrible businessman.

Which you'd be praising Trump for if he did it.

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

Anyways, I don't see how you can blame Hillary for this.

Well, if Hillary wouldn't have taken the notes for that debate from her, then you can make that statement, but she did, so her fingerprints are all over this as well. Hillary DIDN'T have to get a leg up on the debate, she could have told Brazile, No, but she willing read the questions that Brazile provided for her.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

From here on, the word "strumpet" will no longer be permitted on this discussion board.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

If this Brazile thing has happened with Trump, the Strumpets would be spinning it as if he was smart for finding a way to get the questions ahead of time. Just like they praise him for not paying taxes.

Anyways, I don't see how you can blame Hillary for this.

Now, emails reveal Donna Brazil, head of the DNC, leaked debate questions to Hillary ahead of time. CNN has severed ties with Brazil today. Hillary us finished.

So what is the link between Trump and the anti-establishment Republicans? And why didn't those people support Bernie Sanders?

Why on Earth would they want to support an all out Socialist???

His messages about helping the working class should have had more impact, IMHO.

Actually it has.

NYT, Apple and many other corporations used the tax laws legally to reconstruct in order to stay in business, stay competitive and to continue paying their staff. Good on him.

Well if you're the owner of a small business trying to compete with Apple in some way it probably feels a little rigged against them.

Volks." Interesting choice of phrase, that. All sorts of connotations. "Ein Reich, ein volk..." and so on. Still doesn't go any way towards explaining how Trump has the "power" to bend the Washington GOP to his will.

That isn't going to happen, though. Trump is an arsonist, he's burnt about every bridge he's ever crossed. As unpopular as HRC, Trump is even more so. His own party hates him.

Absolutely disgusting, bass. None of those "idiots," scammed contractors living paycheck to paycheck. Absolutely hypocritical to assail the working poor for milking the system all the while pounding your chest like a monkey, bleating on about how brilliant Don the Con is for not paying taxes, cheating contractors, and milking the same system.

And yet, you never mentioned anything about Obama's policies being the root cause for the discontent and angry in this country and he's not the only one that didn't pay taxes, NYT, Apple and many other corporations used the tax laws legally to reconstruct in order to stay in business, stay competitive and to continue paying their staff. Good on him.

Thank you for provig my point. This was never about justice, just cheap political points. Looking forward to Comey getting lit up. We both know that's coming, just wonder if Giuliani will go down too. can't say he'd be missed.

Right back at you. The entire tax revelation, women accusers, backdoor talk right before the debates was equally a hit piece. But that's ok, right? Someone is going to get lit, but I doubt it'll be Guliani.

just read the law. hillary is now officially ineligible to hold any federal office

Not officially, just your opinion. If she was officially ineligible, she wouldn't still be on the ballot.

So, yes, it really is that simple.

It's never that simple. If it were, we wouldn't have lawyers.

So the only question left really should be, who is going to replace her on the Democrat ticket?

No one. She's the democratic candidate, and likely the next president of the United States.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

just read the law. hillary is now officially ineligible to hold any federal office

Did she really break the law — and would the penalty for breaking that law disqualify her from being president? The answers to those two questions are “yes,” and “yes.”

If someone were to ask you if there is a law that Hillary has broken that should end her campaign for president right now, you’d probably answer that the laws broken by Hillary are innumerable. But could you mention a specific law? Well, now you can, and it was hidden in plain sight. If we laypersons can figure it out, it sort of makes you wonder what the FBI was doing when investigating Hillary’s email server.

Apparently, the FBI forgot to visit the Cornell Law Library. Word for word from the Cornell Law Library Former United States Attorney General Michael Mukasey tells MSNBC that not only is Hillary Clinton’s private email server illegal, it “disqualifies” her from holding any federal office. Very specifically points to one federal law, Title 18. Section 2071.

So here’s the one law you need to know that should terminate her presidential campaign:

For those of us who do not have United States Code committed to memory, here’s what it says:”(a) Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both. (b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term “office” does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States.”

Yes, it explicitly states “shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.”

So, yes, it really is that simple. Hillary is “disqualified from holding any office under the United States.” So the only question left really should be, who is going to replace her on the Democrat ticket?

They would HAVE to come to some agreement down the middle, even from the very start. That doesn't mean, they can't disagree.

That isn't going to happen, though. Trump is an arsonist, he's burnt about every bridge he's ever crossed. As unpopular as HRC, Trump is even more so. His own party hates him.

Trump may be a lot of things, but he's not stupid. You don't get to where he's at if you're stupid, otherwise everyone could achieve the same goals. We have a lot of stupid people in this country that are living paycheck to paycheck and that are milking the system, whatever the leftNone of these idiots have casinos, buildings or brand name products or created anything, quite the opposite, they took a lot of stuff from us, the people.

read it and weep. That's just the bottom of the barrel. http://fortune.com/2016/09/14/trump-foundation-investigation-pam-bondi/

mber, Guliani was a federal prosecutor, I know for a fact he has connections to the FBI and some of the agents, probably shared information, looked into these matters deeper with the emails from Wikileaks and found something that raised a red flag and brought it to Comey's attention.

You, who have been a proponent of Republican obstructionism for the past eighth years, who has directly stated that if the Democrats win, the Republicans should actively obstruct them even more, are suddenly saying the Democrats should not be obstructionist. Isn't that nice. So would you agree that the Republicans should also work to come to agreement in the middle if the democrats win?

Regardless of which party wins, I hope the other party will work to find a middle ground without being obstructionist.

Furthermore, Trump has bragged for years about buying access to politicians. In fact, he very well could face a corruption trial for illegally using charity funds to donate to Pam Bondi,

who then decided not to act on the Trump U scam. So, why do you think that Trump is going to "drain the swamp?" Still waiting on those tax releases, hes clearly hiding something.

If he is, nothing came up so far. Maybe you can ask Comey to do an inquiry and get a deposition from him. Good luck with that.

Link please. I read a lot of news, and this is the first I've heard of it. But, Many people are questioning the timing of this. Comey knew of this for over a month. Can you say Hatch Act? Roflmaobenghazi

Links? All the newspapers have been covering this, even the mainstream that are in the tank for her (majority) The Dems can question all they want, even if Comey knew about it, he doesn't like Trump, but he despises Hillary more and I think he realized how really dirty she is. Also, the FBI is not a monolithic group, there are many agent ps that know and think she should have been charged. Also remember, Guliani was a federal prosecutor, I know for a fact he has connections to the FBI and some of the agents, probably shared information, looked into these matters deeper with the emails from Wikileaks and found something that raised a red flag and brought it to Comey's attention.

One more thing. You said, why now? Now you know how many of us felt when the Democrats called these women to come out and allege these sexual assaults by Trump, the timing was so convenient, but for liberals and Dems, that was ok and justified and now you guys are crying foul? LMAO

Hahaha, now I know why you, et al can keep saying 'Hillary cleared of Benghazi'. By not reading anything to the contrary, and just repeating 'cleared' to each other, or maybe reading off the HC campaign's daily 10:30am distribution of talking points.

Congressional committees don't convict anyone of anything, so I guess by that criteria any report that comes out of any congressional investigation clears everyone they are investigating. Mafia, Nixon, whoever, all 'cleared'.

Strangerland: That's interesting, seeing as the only people who have so far suggested they'd be up in arms if their opponent wins are Trump supporters.

Stop the corruption in Washington, issue term limits on congress, appeal and replace Obamacare, focus more on private sector jobs, build a wall or at least focus on using technology to keep out all the illegals, cut taxes, get rid of the lobbyists, lower the corporate tax rate, rebuild our military, STOP the PC madness, make people more self-reliant. Pretty much everything that liberals hate.

Thank you for the list, but again; You have already said, "As if Trump cares what the Washington establishment thugs think."

I am pointing out that Trump should care what Washington thinks. Of the list of things you wrote, no preaident has the power to do any of those things on their own. None. So, its garbage. Unless, of course, Trump usurps the constitution and rules like a dictator, or, he works with congress.

So, I will ask again; After trashing anyone and everyone who disagrees with him, how do Trump supporters honestly believe he can change Washington? The man is an arsonist, burns every bridge he comes across.

I don't understand the frustration, you should be happy that Trump brought it up. It would clear a lot of corruption that is the cancer of Washington or are you happy with the status quo?

Because idiots like Harry Reid coming up with the Nuclear Option to block any filibuster from the GOP. The man is proud of it, he thinks this is all a game, I am glad when he retires, I think the man is disgusting and condescending, he and Hillary are cut from the same cloth, ideology before the people. Good riddance to him. It is because of how the Democrats keep abusing power, everyone has had enough, this is giving the country a serious migraine.

Actually, it is the American voters who can best apply term limits -- by simply refusing to vote for an incumbent -- past whatever limit they deem proper and reasonable. But you don't see the the ones who give so much lip service to it actually trying to practice it.

In the words of HRC. Sometimes government needs to step in and show people, guide people in the right direction. I think in this situation, the people would understand. It's more than enough.

I really do find it hilarious the retorts of some Trumpsters. "Donald doesn't have to care what Washington thinks?" Huh? Why is that? Donald is running for president, not dictator.

No, he's trying to run for president, the dictator is about to leave office and his minions are steadfast in holding the line and preserving the status quo of the Washington elite.

If, if Trump wins the election, he's going to have to work with Capitol Hill. After trashing and disparaging so many folks, do you Trumpsters actually expect people to forget all of that?

He has to work with congress, but the difference is, he has the power to clean the cesspool swamp in Washington.

Amazing how the right pretends she is.

She's actually worse.

Republicans should ask Trump step down!

Trump said the following regarding this: "Now the evidence as I would imagine is so overwhelming because they wouldn’t have done this if it wasn’t overwhelming."

Trump lies. If the emails are copies of those investigated before, there is nothing overwhelming about them. The only thing known at this point is that it appears that emails exist.

“They found what may be some of the 33,000 missing and deleted emails,” he said.

And again, there may not be any missing emails.

Trump told a crowd in Golden, Colorado, on Saturday that the FBI’s review of Clinton email practices raises “everybody’s deepest hope that justice, as last, can be properly delivered.”

Trump, in a civic sense, has no decency. He's every bit as scummy as Anthony Weiner.

Comey had to risk this "discovery" being leaked even closer to Election Day, and risk being perceived as being involved in a cover-up -- or release the fact that emails were discovered and be viewed as trying to influence the outcome of the election

Dear Madame Secretary--too bad.

Because your most-trusted political adviser (Huma Abedin) violated a lot of laws in storing (very likely) Classified emails on her personal cellphones and laptops (and that of her soon-to-be late husband, Anthony Weiner), the result could be quick dismissal of Abedin from Clinton's inner circle, which would be an immediate public-relations disaster for the Clinton campaign.

In your opinion, what exactly isn't great qbout the US? Be specific.

The do-nothing, obstructionist, Republican-led Congress.

As soon as emails were discovered on one of Weiner's phones, FBI Director Comey was between a rock and a hard place. There may not be a single new email, but copies already examined before -- but only a thorough investigation of them can determine that. Nobody knows at this point.

Comey had to risk this "discovery" being leaked even closer to Election Day, and risk being perceived as being involved in a cover-up -- or release the fact that emails were discovered and be viewed as trying to influence the outcome of the election

Much, of course, depends on the integrity of the opponents of Hillary Clinton not to rush to judgment before the investigation results are in -- and the readers here have abundant evidence that these Trump supporters have none.

It is pretty strange to put something like that out with such little information right before an election,” Clinton said. She accused Trump of using the issue to confuse and mislead voters in the final leg of the campaign for the Nov. 8 election.

The FBI asked that she turn over her emails which she lied about and said she didn't have, then all of a sudden she sabotaged her server and her aide who is taking the hit for her husband has emails.

Of course you think that, you're hoping it's going to benefit Donald Trump. But even Congressional Republicans are raising doubts, such as Charles Grassley, chair of the Senate judiciary committee:

As if Trump cares what the Washington establishment thugs think.

I don't suppose you think that's the kind of sensible, pragmatic attitude that Republicans should be taking, though.

Actually, I do.

It's the same game it's been for years. The GOP is teasing itself with the thought that they can take the White House without having to change their message to grow their base.

If things go the way they are, Hillary will tighten that noose. One can only hope.

This story is just another moment for them. Just give us this one last election and we promise we will try to attract more women and minorities next time.

Bill Clinton had sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky in the White House, probably while Hillary was in the building at the same time.

Then sleazy Bill makes a lovey-dovey speech about Hillary at this year's Democratic convention!!!

I wonder what Hillary thought when she watched the speech...

To be honest, I didn't know whether to laugh or throw up.

What did you make of it?

For me, it showed us what a fake couple they are.

If she had any integrity, she would have told him not to make such a barf-inducing fake speech.

Loretta Lynch said that the conversation was innocent — about grandchildren and golf and such — and did not touch on the investigation of the emails.

Hahaha... yeah we really are that stupid... we believe anything!!!

Vote third party. Dump Trump and get rid of the Clintons.

Have you listened to what the 3rd party candidates have to say? Johnson has some good ideas, but if you listen to him talk long enough, you quickly come to realize he is definitely not qualified to be president. And Stein doesn't even really understand how the government works, she'd be a catastrophe.

i find it ridiculous how democrat voters will continue to try to attack Trump on XYZ issue in an article about Clinton getting investigated AGAIN after she most likely bought justice the first time around.

I find it ridiculous that you think she could buy justice the first time around. The number of people who would have to be kept quiet, the money that when paid, could never be spent without raising suspicion. The fact that everyone approached would be corrupt enough to agree without approaching a single person who wouldn't refuse and go to the press or whatever. It's a conspiracy beyond the imagination. Have you ever heard of Occam's Razor?

And now you're blaming her for another investigation - when it's the exact same thing that she was investigated before. She didn't do anything new.

But all the GOP can do is talk about emails. Emails + Clinton are word fatigue. People have long since tuned it out. But it's all they have so that's what they do. Railing against Hillary for years didn't work, committee investigation after investigation after investigation didn't work.

Republicans claim he's winning, and that you can believe the polls but only the ones that put trump in the lead. Hillary will likely win the election.

Myth: Security in Benghazi was deficient because Congress did not provide enough funding.

This claim is one of the earliest and most thoroughly debunked myths spread by Democrats attempting to shift blame from the Obama administration to Republicans in Congress. The editorial geniuses at The New York Times, however, are either woefully ignorant of the facts or simply don’t care ...

Here are the facts: The Washington Post Fact Checker awarded Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) three Pinocchios for a similar claim in May 2013. “[I]t is almost as if Boxer is living in a time warp, repeating talking points from six months ago that barely acknowledge the fact that extensive investigations have found little evidence of her claim that ‘there was not enough security because the budget was cut,’” wrote the Fact Checker. “State Department officials repeatedly told Congress that a lack of funds was not an issue. Instead, security was hampered because of bureaucratic issues and management failures. In other words, given the internal failures, no amount of money for the State Department likely would have made a difference in this tragedy.” ...

I imagine Huma Abedin is barricaded in an office somewhere taking refuge under a desk. Sharing a device with her now estranged pervert of a husband Anthony Weiner is beyond reckless, it irresponsibly negligent.

Protocol dictates that FBI Director James Comey first action before penning letters to Congress, is to fully brief Hilary Clinton and appropriate legal representation to the reopening of the investigation. Unprecedented challenges await the future presidency in the first 100 days of office. Its requisite that political differences be set aside so a clear policy prevails to diffuse events in Syria descending into a intractable stand-off.

Strangerland-

[ Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton received emails from her top aides warning about dangerous security conditions in Benghazi, Libya, in the run-up to the terrorist attack that killed a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans there in 2012, documents disclosed on Friday show.

The messages were part of a batch of about 300 emails involving Benghazi that were made public by the State Department.

The emails, in addition to what they reveal about the Benghazi attack, offer glimpses into Mrs. Clinton’s thinking and executive style. In an exchange with aides about to testify on Capitol Hill, she wrote: “Well, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger (as I have rationalized for years), so just survive and you’ll have triumphed!” ]

It's also worth noting that if you formulate policies and conduct yourself in ways that get innocent people killed (i.e. US embassy staff in Benghazi), strangely enough those things find a way to get back to you.

Really? Because it was determined that what got those staff killed were cuts to embassy budgets by the Republican congress, yet nothing seems to have got back to them.

[ The controversy over Clinton’s email practices at the State Department has dogged her for more than a year. The former secretary of state has often been reluctant to weigh in on the matter — and defensive when she’s been pushed to do so.]

There would be no controversy if she had handled her email properly./hadn't deleted over 30,000 emails.

That is because they have not reopened the case. That is what the spin doctors are saying on the right. It is all just more lies. None of this makes Trump a better candidate at all. He is still a sociopath lying sexual criminal inept loser.

Sorry, but the FBI can get a warrant if they are denied by the DOJ they can ask for an injunction and take it to the Supreme Court if they have to. Either way, it reflects poorly and admiringly if the DOJ refuses to comply with the FBI, then we know for sure that they are without a doubt protecting Hillary and that in itself is against the law. Zurc, why are you angry??? It's not Trump who put Hillary is this situation. Hillary made her bed and let her lay and deal with it.

Trump is not going to arrest her personally obviously, but he will appoint an Attorney General, FBI director and judges to do their job. No warrant has even been issued for the emails in question so naturally there is wildly divergent speculation. Although I believe Huma did testify under oath that she didn't delete anything from the Clinton account on her own devices but did forward them to a Yahoo account that would make it easier to print. We already know she left classified information in the seat pocket of a car. There’s no way the FBI told any media more than this because it would violate the rules of criminal investigation procedure.

The Republicans as well. The republicans should already be asking themselves how against a candidate as hated as Hillary, why they aren't absolutely destroying her in the polls.

We now know that Hillary was insulated by Obama and the DOJ as well as the majority of the MSM, those are the main reasons, the collision between all of these groups could without a doubt turn the tide. Taxes released to the media 3 days before the first debate, video tape coming out that Trump was saying he could do whatever he wants, a video from 12 years ago 2 days for the debate driving it home again and again and women claiming Trump allegedly grouped them, assaulted them 2 days before the debate. All perfectly timed, that's why he was slumping in the polls and now the reverse is happening, but this situation is different because we have a woman that is a public servant engaged in a very serious crime that now has the FBI take a NEW look at all of this which is a good thing and it has taken a toll on her and you see it in the polls.

CrazyJoe: Trump has 75 pending court hearings. Most notable is Trump Univ later in November and the child -rape case in December. So why are we focused on Wiener's sexting?

Pulled that number from where? Got a link, or a list? Know he's a billionaire, right?

CrazyJoe: the child -rape case in December

Isn't this is the same case they tried to enter in California, and dropped (or that a judge dropped), and that an ex-Jerry-Springer producer is pushing under a fake name? You know the Guardian is ultra-liberal, right? And it's reporting this:

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/oct/24/trump-sexual-misconduct-accusers-uva-rape-story-rolling-stone

The accusation comes from a mysterious lawsuit filed against Trump and the celebrity and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, accusing both men of violently raping the plaintiff when she was 13 years old. The plaintiff listed on the lawsuit is a woman named Katie Johnson. ... Several media outlets, including the New York Daily News, uncritically reported on the lawsuit. ... But Anna Merlan, a reporter for Jezebel, documented at length her difficulties obtaining an interview with Johnson or indeed any evidence that she exists. An apparent corroborator, identified in the suit as Tiffany Doe, proved equally difficult to track down. Eventually, Merlan published a detailed account of how a handful of Trump opponents had aggressively shopped the story and all its flaws to the press. ... The Guardian followed up with a report that a former producer for the Jerry Springer show had apparently coordinated the whole thing. ...

http://jezebel.com/heres-how-that-wild-lawsuit-accusing-trump-of-raping-a-1782447083

... In its second iteration, Johnson’s lawsuit has gotten wider play, perhaps because New York journalists have a tendency to swim in a big, bored pack, like a school of fish with quotas to fill. Pretty much all of the stories note that a similar suit was filed and dismissed in California. ...

Hmm, I didn't realize that you don't know what the word 'ask' means. I mistakenly assumed that as a journalist, you would have a knowledge of that word.

LMAO! Ok, Strange, once again stick the head in the sand and deny, you guys can use whatever euphemisms, interpretations, get analytical as much as you guys want and play down what is swirling around you and all the liberals. This is in real time, this is happening and Hillary and her lies are finally catching up to her, does that mean, she's finished? We don't know, maybe, maybe not, but I am happy that the world can see this woman for what she really is: a habitual chronic liar and she can't blame anyone else for this fallout but herself. Comey is finally doing the right thing, whatever you libs think, at least the man has realized this is not about him, it's about the American people deserve to know the truth.

I guess next time, the Democrats might want to consider NOT fielding a known totally corrupt candidate. Hillary made this mess on her own. She is the one who committed the crimes and corruption, no one else did. It is clear the democrat elites knew exactly how corrupt she was, yet they still let her win their primary, they have only themselves to blame.

No where in law or policy does it state the FBI should not investigate crimes and corruption of politicians because they are running for office. The policies about election interference stem from Hoover using his FBI to attain illegally, information about people to blackmail them into compliance with his wishes. That is what the FBI is barred from. Evidence of real crimes can and should be investigated because America does not need to be run by a known totally corrupt politician.

Were they?

Yeah, shockingly...

In conversations with FBI counterparts hours before Comey disclosed that the FBI was hoping to review newly-discovered emails possibly "pertinent" to the Clinton probe, Justice Department officials emphasized that the department has long steered clear of taking such investigative actions close to an election if those actions could potentially influence the outcome of an election, sources said.

Clinton is largely to blame, for not being forthcoming on the emails and not ditching Huma Abedin a long time ago. If Trump's elected, I'm going to put a lot of blame on the Dems for not giving us a better candidate.

Abedin has been quite secretive about her upbringing in Saudi Arabia and work at the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs, so I wonder if this will shed light on any of that.

Of course having a sexual pervert husband who tried soliciting underage youths as a husband hasn't helped the cause, has it. This is just what the Trump people want.
