    Ah yes we should definitely vote for someone based on their skin color, not based on if they have good policies. Imagine being told you only got a job because your black, not because you’re the best.

    *****Just Because someone uses you, You were invited to RNC as a pawn as Scott Was, wanted to show diversity while they use "Jim Crow" Tactics Nationwide.
    ****Not one of the Republican Candidates Have asked Trump to Protect Voters by restoring federal Protections taken away by another "Clarence Thomas" did on June 25 2013.*****Not one asked Trump to Pass "John Lewis Act" sitting on Mitch's Desk!**
    ****until Trump Passes that Bill he is a racist, because that would mean he is willing to allow a free and fair election****Fair is an oxymoron for Trump!
    ***Facts there is 1 Black Republican out of "250 republicans in Senate and Congress, Tim Scott is the one who Republicans March out to push a Police Reform Bill that has No accountability to the community****
    ***these are the Decades of Trump's Racial Discrimination. Read *****Trump Racial Discrimination Wikipedia Page****Read About the $85,000 Trump Paid for Full Front Page Ads in every NYC Newspaper calling for the execution of Black & Latino Teenagers accused Falsely of Rape!!!***These teenagers some as young as 14 years old, The Blacks he disparaged and swindled and refuse to rent luxury Apartments or Condos To***There are Decades of Insults and Discrimination****
    ****But Importantly to these Republicans who say Trump is not a Racist then why won't he pass "John Lewis Act" sitting on Mitch McConnell desks to federally Protect the Rights of All voters!!!!! To Allow elections to be handled by the Federal Government with Federal Regulations, not "Jim Crow Tactics".
    ****A Free and Fair election, what a Thought, no 4 10 hour lines, 5 hour lines, last minute ID Changes, Last Minute Drop Box changes 1 drop box for "4 Million people***

    You have got to stop using intelligent respected people as trophies. Speak about their compassion and insight as qualifications for the jobs before you latch onto color. They deserve better. But I guess race is big money these days.

    This country is such a racist, white supremacist, patriarchal system that women of color are running for office in record numbers.

    The leftist regimes (K, Roh, M) which claimed false peace gave North Korea an opportunity to make weapons.
    These regimes helped the North Korean communist dictatorship to become stronger.
    The hidden real devil of communist dictatorship (red party) has been revealed.

    This is a letter to Donald Donald Trump , but I can’t reach president , so could you do me a favor to Pass the letter to Trump, many thanks.

    I hereby certify that I’m not a hacker ,and I never ever possess any Donald Trump or Ivanka’ emails ,text messenges, pictures, or videos.

    Hi, Trump

    Two months ago, I wrote some words to you, trying to persuade you to pardon Assange, a few days later, I guess I saw some signals, then I took for granted that we reached an tacit agreement, so I am just waiting for good news, but pardon didn’t come until the day of Nobel Peace Prize, now I have to talk and persuade you again, please do the right thing , pardon Assange .

    Dear Trump, I agree with all your policies besides Corona-19 and trade war with my country, and I admire your attitude towards fucking George Bush, the scum launch a war to Iraq no reason, destroyed Iraq and cause thousands of people dying, it’s ridiculous that Assange was prisoned just because he exposed the evilness and dark ugliness of Washington warmongers , and it is totally wrong and unacceptable .

    My friend, what’s wrong between you and mask ? wearing mask would bring you a easy win , but your crazyness is beyond my imagination, seemingly that you always want to be a charming wild western hero , but actually you act like a stupid villain, yes , I know you like to play tough , and at your age you have nothing to be scared of, but please thinking about Ivanka for a second, you really want Ivanke to be the first beautiful woman president of United states, or a slut bitch showing her eroticism to all of the world, my friend , all is upon to you.

    the earth is getting small with the plane and fast internet communication , physics is there, developed country like your America is going down and developing country like China、India、brazil is going up,that’s an unstoppable trend, It will go on and on until our small earth got its equilibrium, so face it and don’t reffered your America’s falling to China or anybody else, I wonder, my pal ,do you really belive factory will come back to your lazy American people? Do you really believe your stupid embargo and sanction of China will stop and turn the trend.

    America have been a great and respectful country for one hundred years , but you bullying and mercurial clown style ruined it just four years, compare your failure at covid-19, your embargo and sanction policy are more dangerous , what the hell are you doing? you know what, your securities market and high technolog is your America’s only two valuable asset, but you moron don’t realize that you are destructing America , I told you, you are the one to make China great, MCGA, I don’t want elaborate here , but everybody knows that China is full of corruption, especially in the field of securities market and technology reasearching, but it’s you are pushing so hard to make China anti-corruption and accelerate the reform in the two field, and it’s your sanction and embargo are pushing China to develop high technology sparing no effort, morden technology develop quickly and the updating becomes so fast, you guess what, in 5-10 years , China will be a real finance and high technolog power , capital pouring into open and innovative China finance market, China’s high technology replacing American high technology, people may argue that I’m exaggerating and bragging , no , I’m not, you know it’s true, Huawei and Tiktok is best sign. wow, Donald Trump and MCGA, I am so sure that China’s greatness and success would own you a lot, you spoiled boy.

    My dear friend, Coercion and intimidation is not real fight, I know you have been into showboating, but I have a word for you here , don’t act too much , you are lucky that you body getting through the covid-19 test, but you can’t getting through the doomsday, in 5-10 years , your high tech company collapasing, your stock market collapasing , and your great America would degenerated to like Mexico or South Africa, Dear Donald, it’s you bring the Amrican’s biggest failure in the history , you are the one reponsiable for utterly destruction of America, trust me, that day your once crazy supporters would do bad things to you, gun shotting, knife stabbing, or rope hanging, Damn it, It’s horrible to imagine that day . so don’t kidnap your American people, and be reasonable and cooperative, how about giving Huawei license and freeing Men wanzhou ? believe me, Huawei will appreciate your great move, doing the right thing is biggest politics, as I always said, you are the real and raw man, since porn star can made a deal with you, I have confidence that we will reach agreement at this piont.

    Let me be very clear , my friend , I will chasing and challenging you and Ivanka until I get that pardon, so when trouble is coming to you, just thinking of me , I give you my word here, should you pardon Assange, I would never ever walking into your life again, and bad thing would never ever happen to Ivanka.

    Dear Trump , everytime when I saw you fighting the fake news and hypocrite, I’m getting so sorry, Washington don’t like real and raw man, just let sleepy joe and incompetent democrats deal with the mess, four years later , it’s time for beautiful Ivanka big win, by the way, can you recommand a publisher for me and put a good word for my novel “the great future of Riquelme and Elber”, the book is about internet crime, fascinating and terrific. undoubtedly, this book will be the greatest mystery novel of all times.

    Good luck.
