    TRUMP - Some people think......... How do you feel?

    TRUMP - Some people think......... How do you feel?

    And we see a variation of the same at universities. From my understanding, universities are no longer places where differing views can be expressed. Many of our Canadian universities only support views on the left. Anyone to the right is shut out and protested. someone like @Graeme Decarie...

    TRUMP - Some people think......... How do you feel?
