TRUMP is Disrespecting My MARINE Son’s Military Service

  The Trump-led Republican Party is making a mockery of my Marine son's service and the values he fought for.

Dan Coats, who said of Francis'  statements on income inequality, “I’m always concerned about those who are bringing spiritual messages that step too far over the line in terms of political issues.”Check out Coats' Tweet re separation of r … [Read more...]
