Her ambition to merge with Reform shows her disregard for the very communities…

As he prepares for another presidential bid, his most viable path to victory and avoiding legal consequences depends on a significant misstep by the Democrats. Trump’s hopes rest on the Democratic Party botching their nomination process, appearing to rig it in favor of a faltering president, the current vice president, or another chosen successor.

The lower decks were packed with lower class people that weren’t even counted when planning for lifeboats. And when the Titanic started sinking, water started filling up from under the ship.
