A Vote for Trump is…

Put aside your political parties. Put aside your initial bias towards one candidate or another. Let’s take a moment to just think about Trump. Not trump compared to [insert other politician’s name here]. Not Trump the Republican. Not Trump the businessman. Not Trump the father/husband/friend. Just Trump.
