Donald Trump @realDonaldTrump “Our way of life is under threat by Radical Islam and Hillary Clinton cannot even bring herself to say the words.” Nicholas Kristof, New York Times columnist @NickKristof “Hillary Clinton was never renowned for oratory, but tonight’s speech was the best I’ve ever seen her give–esp when standing up to Trump” Jon Lovett, TV writer and producer @jonlovett “Last week was a convention about Donald Trump.
This is a convention about America. I like America better.” Bill Clinton @billclinton “More than ever, I’m with her, our next President.” Rich Galen, former press secretary to Republican House speaker Newt Gingrich @richgalen “How can it be that I am standing at my kitchen counter sobbing because of the messages being driven at the DNC?

Didn’t shed the ‘trust’ baggage but no one trusted Nixon either and he won twice”
