However, that’s how far they are similar. In Bernie Sanders’ advertisement “American Horizon” he talks about his campaign and what he plans to accomplish with his campaign. However, throughout the media Donald Trump is always being criticized because of his campaign and his racial slurs as in Dana Summers political cartoon describes.
