Words Matter, Donald Trump, Even Yours

 

Donald Trump may have cost himself some delegates or, at the very least, created an unnecessary headache over delegates, with his denouncement of his previous pledge to support the eventual nominee of the Republican Party.

Gov. Nathan Deal Caves to Crony Capitalism in Georgia
