snip--"the Flesch-Kincaid reading test—showed that Donald Trump speaks at a fourth-grade level"

snip--" What the elites might not get is that Trump’s simple vocabulary is a huge part of his appeal to the two-fifths of Americans who back him. Fancy words and big complex thoughts don’t impress them. Meat and potatoes words do, and that’s Trump."

(8,419 posts)no motivation, usually when people make mistakes they will take a scolding and move on. If the leader is making the mistakes then you tend to look like Carson and the Doc.

(21,526 posts)The drug touted by the U.S. President Donald Trump as a possible line of treatment against the coronavirus comes with severe warnings in China and can kill in dosages as little as two grams.

China, where the deadly pathogen first emerged in December, recommended the decades-old malaria drug chloroquine to treat infected patients in guidelines issued in February after seeing encouraging results in clinical trials. But within days, it cautioned doctors and health officials about the drug’s lethal side effects and rolled back its usage.
