Michael Reagan: Trump and RINOs

Letter: Watch their eyes for all the lies
A majority of voters will be voting for Republicans again. And who can fault the Republican politicians who do nothing for farmers or workers in this district? Republicans still want to reduce the size of government until it can be dragged into the bathroom and drowned in the bathtub....
