  • Siva

    The author is absolutely correct, people are simply captivated by him. Have they even looked whether he has experience running a small coffee shop, before making him president?..

    Whoever who does not meddle and try to take advantage of situations in smaller and poor nations should be supported. Also whoever who is not supporting terrorism and think if you have some crazy cause you can fight for it should not be a president of a country like America who can influence other countries.
