The Trump Train Comes to Town

On the same day that Barack Obama was campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Ann Arbor, a “Trump Train,” a caravan with loudspeakers, a float and plenty of American flags rolled by.

In Ann Arbor, which is expected to overwhelmingly support Clinton and other Democrats in tomorrow’s election, most students seemed surprised to see such a showing for Trump and the caravan itself was often greeted with laughter.

Other passersby were simply enjoying the frenzy of political activity that has been present on campus since the beginning of the semester. Several students commented that they loved the excitement and were eager to cast their ballots tomorrow and, although they didn’t support Trump, found the caravan amusing.

    Students hopefully will think some of this out on their own. First, Trump is only Republican technically speaking. He does not at all hold the typical Republican views.

It is one thing to get an education in Michigan and another thing to get a job. Getting down to it voters only have one choice if they wish to restore vitality to that once great State–vote Trump. I am not a Republican–not even close—but the Democrats are hurting more minorities than they are helping. I want to see more of us getting a job–a good job–and this cannot occur the way Washington has been handling import-export–trade deals–and the shipping of our jobs to other people who do not live here. We need help—go Trump
