'Four Score'? More like setting scores in Trump's Gettysburg address. a speech at Gettysburg, Donald Trump pledges to "heal divisions" (and sue his accusers) via @ashleyrparker
Retweeted by Ashley ParkerSeven score and 13 years ago, Lincoln came to Gettysburg for his famous address. Then, on Sat., Trump made a visit. far, Trump's"First 100 Days" speech includes almost NO new policies. This is a rehash of his previous speeches, at a more subdued volume.His "First 100 Days," based on this speech so far, involves an awful lot of litigation. far, he has grumbled about the "rigged" system, the media, and the 11 women who have accused him of unwanted sex… far, Trump's "First 100 Days" speech is basically him slamming Hillary and complaining about the "rigged" system.About three years late, but here's a great @longformpodcast with @magicmolly: More.
