Some of the comments included the following:

  • "A convention is supposed to tell us what will take place in the future Not what and where the candidate was born and what they did in school , etc."
  • "The difference between the two conventions was a staged Vegas-style promo for Donald Trump versus a multi-faceted presentation of ideas and views for change, unity and movement for our future... Smoke and mirrors versus real positive action."

Tell us your thoughts, Dutchess. This election is, after all, practically taking place in our backyard with Hillary Clinton living in Chappaqua and Donald Trump owning property in Bedford. He also owns Trump National Golf Club Hudson Valley in Stormville and Trump National Westchester in Briarcliff Manor. And, the Trump name adorns Trump Tower At City Center in White Plains, Trump Plaza in New Rochelle, Trump Park Residences in Yorktown and the Donald J. Trump State Park on the Westchester/Putnam border.
