“Donald Trump is a reflection, and what we learned is that there’s a lot of vulgar, tacky, racist people in this country, more than I thought. I knew there were some, but it’s the proverbial lifting up of a rock. And what we found when we lifted it up was a basket of deplorables. It’s not even a race between ideologies anymore.

Build The Great Wall of America which will accomplish nothing other than making another scar of division on
