Jesse Jackson: Donald Trump's dangerous delusions on police brutality

Posted 8/5/2017 in National Columns

Donald Trump often seems more shock jock than president. He likes to shock, say or tweet outrageous things, prove that he's not just another politician. But now he is president; his words have impact, and his posturing can be dangerous.

 

 

Bernard Goldberg: Trump's non-stop cheap shots
