Don't Believe The New Donald, It's The Teleprompter Talking

Donald Trump is fooling no one, for we will not forget the real Donald.


Over the course of the past week there have been some major changes inside the Trump campaign as Paul Manafort, Trump's campaign manager resigned. This comes as Donald's poll number is plummeting into what some call a point of no return for the Republican nominee. Many see Manafort's resignation as a sign that the Trump camp is becoming desperate. This is the second time that a Trump campaign manager has resigned.

Trump has recently been receiving criticism from the media and from Republican party officials for having yet to "pivot" to the general election with a more "presidential" manor. It has been nearly a month since both conventions have ended, and Hillary Clinton's convention"bump" seems to be more than just a bump, considering her incredible poll numbers have remained. Clinton's outstanding numbers, some believe, are due to the way Donald continues to present himself.

Over the weekend, we have began to witness what is an attempt by the Trump campaign to change the perception voters have of Donald Trump. While giving a speech in North Carolina, Trump stated that he "regrets" some of the comments he has made in past, for "some things just slip out in a heated debate".

At a rally in Michigan, Trump attempted to bring in African-Americans into his umbrella of support by calling them out, but instead ended up insulting them even more. If Donald Trump wants to appeal to African-Americans, maybe he should start by talking to African-American voters. Instead, Trump is talking about African-Americans to a group of white people. At the rally, Trump asked African-Americans, as if any were actually watching, "what the hell do you have to lose [by voting for me]?" He then made some of the most anti-African-American statements by stereotyping and generalizing all African-Americans and African-American communities by stating, "You're living in poverty... your schools are no good... your youth are unemployed." Mr. Trump, say this to the African-American doctor that I go to, say this to the African-American lawyer that I know, say this to the African-American principal that I had.

Donald Trump is no president for African-Americans or any other minority for that matter... and that is coming form a white, southern boy from Tennessee. The "new" Donald cannot be believed, but he can not be taken for granted, either. Some people will believe the speech being read off the teleprompter that wasn't written by him, but we must not forget the true Donald we have now seen for the past year. I would predict that over the course of the next month, we will begin to see the polls tighten up due to the "new" Donald, therefore, we must continue to fight our hearts out until November the 8th and we win this thing. We must defeat this dangerous demagogue.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
