“The fact is, Donald Trump should not lose this election due to his personality. As a reporter, I can state: the man is a straight-up G. He’s a cool person, he’s funny, he sets a good example for young people by highlighting success and winning.
In the times I’ve talked to him, dating back a few years now, he’s been a class act. I’ve seen him with his family, and he is a consummate gentleman. He is gregarious and friendly and genuinely interested in the people that he talks to.
If we had more Donald Trumps, this country would be a better place. Fact.” — Patrick Howley.
