Donald Trump ran his campaign on a platform that he doesn't conform to political correctness. His base ran with the idea and now the term is being twisted to mean a loss of free speech. But is it?


After being called out for implying Mexican immigrants are rapists, and openly mocking a man with physical disabilities, Trump famously said in 2016 while campaigning for the presidency:
