    Nichol Draper - West Jordan, UT, you know that we had better growth during the Obama Presidency right?

    The wealthy were the ones that have made out like bandits with the GOP tax give away to the ultra rich and Corportations already overflowing in profits.

    This did nothing to help the middle class. The stock Market did better under President Obama than it is doing under Trump. Health care that Trump promised "for all" has never happened. The GOP tried to remove health care from millions but Senator McCain blocked that from happening. And we can still see the horrible tweets from Trump against him. Classless.

    Are you kidding with your comments that Trump doesn't pander to the elites? Really, then explain how the Koch Brothers, and Trump himself got Billions back with this crazy tax deal? Can you tell us? Middle class didnt do so well. And future generations are now saddled with more GOP caused debt and deficits. Not to mention the enviornment that is being disregarded by Trump and the GOP.

    Trump isn't a self made man. Inherited wealth, and theft from those he owes money to does not make him a "successful" man in any sense of the word.

    Wow, truth eludes this crowd. Under Trump finally wages of the middle class are going up, the number of billionaires world wide is going down -- still going up in the USA and the elites complain day and night about Trump. And the comments here say Trump is out of touch? Well excuse the --- that we the middle America elected but he shows the elites and the world the respect they deserve. None.

    I thought the reason for the attacks against Schultz is that he's talking about running as an Independent, which some see as drawing votes away from Dem candidates.

    Donald Trump has'nt given success a bad name. He's given the presidency a bad stain. Financial success does not define trump, nor Biden or Beto as the article tries to paint it on them, as well.

    Listen to them speak. Learn their stories, and hear what they say. Trump hasn't given success a bad name. He's given dignity a sucker punch, decency a drop kick, intelligence a banishment and dignity a low blow. Success, or not, has nothing to do with that.

    We have had great leaders (and a few stinkers as well) who came from privilege. And a few who did not.

    The question is not how much a given candidate has or hasn't in their brokerage account(s). The question is the policies he/she espouses.

    I think we can all look down on those candidates of privilege who campaign as the champion of the average American, but govern as the friend of the already well-off. The well-off in this country rarely suffer much. Here or anywhere really.
