The Trump Tower, home of a reality show, a shopping center, and a headquarters’ campaign, has become the private office of Donald Trump until he gets the Oval.

Trump’s winning: How its been perceived in the web

One of the most important platforms of media coverage has been Twitter, especially during the Presidential Elections of 2016.

Llamémosla “La Bendita Pared."

Este fin de semana pasado tuvimos el privilegio de mirarla con nuestros propios ojos y, al final, no pudimos creer lo que veíamos.

“La Pared”, en la frontera entre México y los Estados Unidos, esa que vemos ocasionalmente en la televisión, o esa construida en la imaginación popular por políticos que hablan sin parar de ella, no tiene nada que ver con lo que se ve y se siente al llegar allí y no resistir la tentación de tocarla con tus propias manos.
