7 Biden-Harris quotes that will come back to haunt them in midterm elections.
Donald Trump’s White House bid is being run in large part by his campaign chairman, Corey Lewandowski, who is a high-speed wrecking ball.
He’s not only building up the Trump team through outside help, he’s using that help aggressively against those who disagree with him – including, by his own admission, former rival Hillary Clinton.
