How the Republican Party Changed: From Lincoln To Trump

Vox.com recently released a video that clearly explains how the Republican Party went from Lincoln to Trump. It’s a 7-minute “must see” for anyone who interested in understanding how a party ― which started so great ― has gone down the toilet.

”It is said that the benefit of America’s long presidential campaigns is they offer the candidates time to show us who they really are. Trump has shown us who he really is. He is a person who should not be president. That he is being brought this close to the presidency — that he is one major mistake by Hillary Clinton away from winning it — should scare us all. It certainly scares me.” Ezra Klein, Editor-in-Chief, Vox.com
