Characterization: Trujillo Step 1: "According to SInita, Trujillo became president in a sneaky way" (17). "One day, the general told Trujillo he was going to be meeting this woman that very night under the bridge in Santiago where people meet to do bad things. So Trujillo went and told the husband..." (18). This shows me that Trujillo is an untrustworthy and dishonest person. He didn't take the proper steps to become president, and he can't be trusted to keep a secret.
