Trump is about as close to a dictator as America will probably ever have.

"The story of Chiles success starts in the mid-1970s, when Chiles military government abandoned socialism and started to implement economic reforms. In 2013, Chile was the worlds 10th freest economy.

There's big colorful "graphs" which are like coloring and pictures all in one....
For the 10th time, so you cavemen understand it. Show me, where did I say we need to be socialist? I want our taxes to cover quality healthcare and education.
