    • Hey Jack, I really like your ideas in this post. The way you used Trumps words directly against him to say he is racist is very powerful and provides a strong argument that cannot easily be refuted. I also love how you explained your own thoughts and laid out why you feel that way about happiness, it makes the reader take a second and think about what their thoughts are on the subject. Overall a very strong piece and I think you did a great job explaining your point of view on the subject.
