With Election Day looming, the thought — and fear — of a Donald Trump presidency is on everyone's mind. We wanted to know what Trump's America would really look like.
Trump has painted a dark and chilling vision of our nation. With days to go until Election Day, we asked people to #ImagineTrumpsAmerica.
Friends – I want to #ImagineTrumpsAmerica. Please share your vision.
