THE BATTLE RAGES
April 21: Donald Trump to Fox News host Bill O’Reilly.
“We’ve been doing well. I’ve done well my whole life. I’ve had victories my whole life. So we’re going to have another victory.”
May 6: Democratic National Committee, in a public statement following news that Mr. Trump was the presumptive Republican nominee.
“Yikes.” May 16: John Harris, culture writer for the Guardian, after five days in Indiana following the Trump campaign:
“Almost none of the Trumpites I met seemed to be the guntoting zealots of liberal demonology.”
June 3: Lydia Saad, Gallup poll analyst;
“If the race for president comes down to Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, Trump could benefit from an edge in public confidence on the issue Americans are prioritizing most this election. Economy, jobs, terrorism, national security, taxes, the federal government, gun policy and immigration.”
June 30: James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family:
“Donald Trump appears to be tender to things of the Spirit. All I can tell you is that we have only two choices. Hillary or Donald. Hillary scares me to death. If Christians stay home because he isn’t a better candidate, Hillary will run the world for perhaps eight years. The very thought haunts my nights and days.”
