It seems Mr. Trump is taking a break this week. No public rallies are scheduled.

His flamboyant, sometimes bombastic personality has overshadowed every other person running for president, as we all know.
Trump’s style has captivated millions of Americans and his campaign has been very successful thus far.
So successful that it has almost obliterated the fact that the Democratic president and Party in general has failed to improve America.
With Trump getting so much attention, the Democratic record has been obscured.
Consider this — about two million more citizens live in poverty since President Obama took office.
Poverty among women has increased by one million.
Among blacks, the poverty rate is up nearly one-and-a-half percent since the president was first elected.
Median income for all Americans has dropped an average of $2,000 since 2009.
That is an economic disaster. Yet few Americans really know the stats.
How about illegal immigration, Mr. Trump’s big issue?
According to the Center For Immigration Studies, about two-and-a-half million undocumented immigrants have entered the USA during President Obama’s tenure.
That includes more than 150,000 unaccompanied minors.
The Pew Research Center estimates that more than 300,000 babies are born each year to at least one parent who is an undocumented immigrant.
Those babies, of course, immediately become American citizens.
The cold truth is President Obama has not improved the illegal immigration chaos and has actually made it easier for alien criminals to hurt Americans by supporting the sanctuary city concept and failing to support Kate’s Law, which would harshly punish alien aggravated felons who defy deportation. Why aren’t the Democrats supporting that?
Overseas, there is a war raging in Syria and Iraq that was ignited when the president ordered all U.S. troops to leave Iraq.
ISIS then moved in, creating violence and horror.
Shortly after the president ordered the Americans out, Vice President Biden said this:
JOE BIDEN: “I am very optimistic about — about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration. You’re going to see 90,000 American troops come marching home by the end of the summer. You’re going to see a stable government in Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government.”
Of course Mr. Biden’s assessment turned out to be dead wrong – the optimum word being dead.
The situation in this region is much worse now than it was when President Obama took office.
The reason (besides the foolish pullout): Mr. Obama underestimated the ISIS threat.
In January 2014, the New Yorker Magazine published this quote by the president:
“The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a JV team puts on Lakers uniforms, that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant.”
So far the ISIS savages have executed thousands of civilians, raped thousands of women, and generally terrorized at least a half dozen nations in the Middle East and North Africa.
All of that on President Obama’s watch.
As far as Iran is concerned, most Americans are opposed to the nuke deal the Obama administration wants approved.
According to a Fox News poll released this month, 58% of Americans reject the Iranian nuke deal, 31% approve, ten percent don’t know.
In September, Congress will vote on the nuke deal but it doesn’t really matter. President Obama will get this done no matter what.
On social issues, the Democratic Party has veered sharply left.
When Planned Parenthood was exposed for selling the body parts of babies, few Democrats condemned the action.
It is hard to believe but some people echo this Canadian pro-choice person:
