  1. Trump is a normal Republican. Populists are racist leftists who dress up as "right-wing" candidates in order to win elections in an environment that rejects subversive leftist ideals.

  2. You idiots are trying to vilify trump who ran against the establishment and media corruption that we the people know is very real. This kind of partisan report is why we the people hate partisan Fake News like Bloomberg. Because of this post, I unsubscribed to your liberal propaganda channel.
