    The Democratic party lacks a strong leadership. I have read the opinions of many from http://top-essay-writing.services/proessaywriting-com-review/ and they all feel the same. Hopefully, they will realize this and make amends quickly.

    Since Trump’s brand is being the “boss,” we should reveal the dark side of that…who hasn’t had a “bad boss?” Who hasn’t had a boss who makes promises he doesn’t even intend to keep to get you to do what he wants, one who hires and promotes his incompetent kids or family members for key positions in the company while relying on those below them to keep the company running, one who avoids talking to employees with gripes…even hiding from them, one who agrees with you face to face then does the opposite behind your back, one who wastes employee’s time standing in front of them announcing how great he is, one who betrays his people (even those closest and most loyal to him) if it suits his purpose, one who asks you to give everything for the company as he takes everything from the company, one who couldn’t care less about employees or if what he does hurts them or the company. Who would you rather have for a boss, Trump? Or Obama.
