# eliminate indent from itemize starting from the second line

I've seen many answers to the question of how not to indent the entries of a list with enumerate or itemize, but I couldn't find the answer to this other question: I want the first line to be as it is by default, but the rest of them aligned with the usual text. That is, if I use

[...] This is what I read in the New York Times:
\begin{itemize}

\item Escalating his criticism of Hillary Clinton’s debate performances,
Donald J. Trump came to a state battling a drug epidemic and suggested without
any evidence on Saturday

\end{itemize}


I would get the second sentence "Donald J. Trump..." aligned at the same level of the item, but I want it to be aligned with the rest of the text which is outside the itemize environment.

Any help? Thanks

• Welcome to TeX.SE! Please show us a short, compilable code you have tried so far ... Oct 16, 2016 at 15:44

• You can improve your question by adding a minimal working example (MWE) that more users can copy/paste onto their systems to work on. See also question here: meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228 Oct 16, 2016 at 16:07

• Are you happier now having written that? It's not about making us happy but about minimizing our effort to help you (and thus increasing your chances that actually someone spends the time). We should be able to copy and paste your code, and when compiling it we should be able to see your problem, and then we can start modifying the code. At the moment your code gives lots of errors (unrelated to your problem) because it doesn't start with \documentclass. Oct 16, 2016 at 18:08

Maybe you're after the wide option of enumitem. Here are two variants:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[showframe]{geometry}%
\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}

Text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text text. %

[...] This is what I read in the New York Times:
\begin{itemize}[wide]

\item Escalating his criticism of Hillary Clinton’s debate performances,
Donald J. Trump came to a state battling a drug epidemic and suggested without
any evidence on Saturday

\end{itemize}
\begin{itemize}[wide = 0pt]
\item Escalating his criticism of Hillary Clinton’s debate performances,
Donald J. Trump came to a state battling a drug epidemic and suggested without
any evidence on Saturday

\end{itemize}

\end{document}


maybe your question has been answered here: Left margin for 'custom' item of enumeration

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\begin{document}
\begin{enumerate}[label={\textbf{(\alph*)}},leftmargin=0.5cm,align=left]
