Donald Trump: A Look at the Man behind the Message 41 MIN, 42 SEC

In the first months of campaigning for the GOP presidential nomination, Donald Trump has relied on sweeping generalities. That and similar promises are now familiar -- and Trump's failure to back them up with substantive detail has not eroded his base of support. But others want to know more about those deals made by "The Donald," as he's known in New York and about the depth of his Republican values. We talk with supporters and skeptics about Trump's record and his White House qualifications.

"For most of the past decade, North Dakota [was] the economic envy of every state in America." Now, it's in trouble because of something officials never expected: a severe drop in the price of oil. That's according to Jennifer Oldham, writing for Bloomberg.
