Conservatives has better be worried more about their funding that any thoughts of the existence of a "Trump Legacy"!

Charlie Koch sees the way the Country is headed, and is cutting off the funding of "Conservatism", so that unrealistic Pipedream will soon wither on the vine.

There will be a "Trump Legacy", but it will be one of out-of-control narcissism, greed, selfishness, incompetence and a great deal of damage to this Country.
In fact, the most common thing that will be said from now on when mentioning Richard Nixon will be "well, at least he wasn't as bad as Trump"!

If you are a conservative who loves this country you should not give to the Salvation Army they are Trump bashers and they excluded Melania Trump from helping in their organization. I used to give tons of money to them now I won't give them a penny and neither should you. Let the liberals help them and see how far they get with that.

Haha, Nixon wasn't as bad as Obama either. Let the one without sin throw the first stone!

"Election Fight", that's pretty laughable. It's been a blowout. What's team Trump's record now? Like 1-29. It's a joke. It's being done to placate the fragile ego of a clinical narcissist. When real lawyers are like "Fuck this, I'm out, I don't even need the paycheck from this clown" and you have to go to Rudy, you're pretty much fucked. Dude's a Loser.
