2016/04/14

What is GOP ?  Do you know ?

Have you seen this in print ?  Have you heard a newscaster say it ?  It's not a word, so an announcer would not say, "gop", as a single word.

GOP is an abbreviation for "Grand Old Party".  The Republican political party of the United States is commonly referred to as the GOP.  Of course, as most of you know, the other major political pary in America is the Democratic party.  Hillary Clinton is a democrat and is hoping to become the presidential nominee of this party.

Donald Trump belongs to the GOP, though in fact, he only recently joined the Republican party in order to make a "bid" (a try) to become the President of The United States of America.  Trump is a multi-billionaire.

In the U.S.A, there is no limit on the amount of money a candidate may spend on his/or her campaign to become the president.  Trump has the money advantage.

Trump is leading in the polls and has a chance of becoming the GOP nominee and face the Democratic nominee in the general election in November.                                           (V.C)
