If he truly wanted to "lock her up," it seems Trump should have offered Hillary a position on his election campaign staff.

What Kool-Aid is Billy Graham's son drinking with his blind support of President Trump? He refuses to say that Trump has told one lie!

Good for Trump for keeping the talks going with North Korea. Talking is better than not talking. Maybe he will pull off a miracle.

More guns plus more people with guns equals more people shot with guns. It's not rocket science people.
