    That’s a lot of jobs, a lot of voters, ALL UNIONS! Guess what? You will lose those votes! Why do you go down that path? IDIOTS! Do you think people will give up coal, oil, gas? That’s their livlihood! You’ll be lucky if an Democrat gets in a political job! What we need to do is eliminate CNN and Democratic Party. Why is CNN the only one asking questions? They are BIASED AND FAKE, THEY DON’T DO THEIR RESEARCH, MANIPULATE VIDEOS! THATS REPORTING THESE DAYS! THAT IS WHY CNN IS LOSING SUPPORTERS JUST LIKE THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY. EVIL BEGETS EVIL!
