FIRST: please visit Robert Reich at http://robertreich.org/ and follow him on Facebook. This is a small snippet of this man’s insight….. At his blog, and, on Facebook you can get more information and learn what you can do to resist/oppose the Trump agenda.

Regardless of who you voted for, you should hear this analysis!

Reich views Trump’s behavior as something which is a menace to traditional American freedoms and democracy, itself – and I think he’s spot on.
