    Meanwhile, the Democrats and the liberal Mainstream Media are doing everything they can to undermine Trump’s efforts. If Trump is successful, it spells the end for the Democrat party and for the Mainstream Media. Trump represents an existential threat to them. They know it, and they will stop at nothing to stop Trump. We, who support Trump, must do whatever we can to counter these leftist attacks.

    So glad to see this happening. We know that we can make anything here faster, cheaper and better if we want. This will really help to bring livable wage jobs back to America and to correct the wrongly structures predatory globalist who were only rewarding themselves. Companies must offer a dynamic work partnership today that rewards all stakeholders if they want good results and success.
