  3. All this political rhetoric by a racist narcissistic belligerent corrupt unfit trump to get African Americans to vote for him.
    Tell me trump how many United States federal judges or judicial judges out of a total of 150 total judges you appointed
    was African American or people of color.

  4. No emotions, only reading. trump is so childish that he thinks no one will notice it. Poor sick man, his whole life looking his own belly, how big it can be, and millions of americans following the same sickening pattern, only because they don't read, they don't want to understand reality and prefer an empty life full of childish dreams. In 450 years religion will be prohibited in the world. Religious people are the real and most dangerous virus of this world.
    I'm pretty sure if they decide to live in a planet by their own they will not last more than a generation.
