A recent controversy involving Donald Trump concerned whether or not he said that wages in
America are too high and should be reduced. After Bernie Sanders took him to task for it, Trump
denied that he ever said it. He did, indeed, say it. I myself heard him say it on more than one
occasion during more than one interview. His saying it, however, is not of major concern; he says
a lot of things since there apparently is no filter between his brain and his mouth. The real
problem concerns the inability of some voters to take the time and effort to understand the true
impact of what he is saying and why he is saying it. What is being missed is the importance of
the context in which he says the things he says.
