The Trump campaign and democracy's future Reporters are being heckled at Trump rallies by supporters who say Trump will win in a landslide and openly talk about violence and “revolution” if he doesn’t. Yesterday, Mike Pence insisted the campaign will accept the results if it loses, but high-level Trump surrogates echo his claim that the election is being “rigged.” Polls show that Trump might lose in a landslide, with heavy damage to his own Republican Party—and the confidence of millions in the democratic process.
Trump and the Media Donald Trump has publicly trashed journalists, feuded with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly and banned publications like the New York Times from events. His antagonistic relationship with the press is one of the ways his campaign is unconventional. Yet, for all the animosity, Trump and the press are locked in a co-dependent dance.
Will Donald Trump Inspire Other Rebel Billionaires? For decades, politicians have said that government should be "run like a business," but business leaders don't often run for office. Now, here comes Donald Trump, who has captured the nation's attention with comments like "How stupid are our leaders…how stupid are these politicians." Trump's astonishing success -- the billionaire businessman is leading in all the polls in the race for the Republican presidential nomination -- may have other billionaire CEO's giving a second thought to public service. That's according to Ben Schreckinger of Politico , who's in Dallas for today's Trump rally. Is Mark Cuban considering a run for the presidency? Photo: JD Lasica
