In this episode, I talk about Donald Trump and the fact that he is now the presumptive nominee for the Republican Party. He has been winning primary after primary, but he remains a controversial figure. Many Americans are shocked that he has garnered so much support. How has he done it? Why are so many Americans voting for him? What are his plans? I address these and other questions in the podcast. This podcast will help you better understand just what is has been happening over the past few months regarding the primary/caucus electoral process. You will learn tons of useful vocabulary and expressions that will help you better understand the news.
