The Democrats’ New Chapter

Now that the impeachment of President Donald Trump hasn’t reached the Democrats’ expected goal, it is time for them to change gears facing the coming presidential elections. Until now, the Democrats have let the Republicans take the initiative, using techniques not always politically correct, or right, and in the process losing elections that they should never have lost. For some time, the Democratic presidential candidates have been fighting against each other rather than focusing their actions to be more effective. It is time to plan new strategies that will allow them to regain power. They
