“This was a day when truth overran tweets, when facts overwhelmed bald assertions.” – Dan Balz
Upon the breaking news of Micheal Cohen’s guilty plea and Paul Manafort’s guilty conviction, many declared it to be Trump’s darkest hour of his presidency. The quote that stood out to me upon reading this morning’s Wake Up to Politics newsletter was that of the chief correspondent of the Washington Post, Dan Balz. The truth always prevails and we need to support our press in relaying the truth to the people every single day.
I respect your right to vote for what you deem is best for you whether it’s a presidential candidate or a state policy. However, I have the right as a minority to be dumbfounded by those who voted for someone that ran their campaign on hate or a policy that marginalizes a population.
If anyone one of my American friends voted for Trump or didn’t vote at all with the excuse of “it’s rigged” or “my vote doesn’t count”, please unfriend me.
Your vote for Trump or lack of a vote has put a huge number of the American population such as many of my family and friends at risk of deportation, injustice, violence and death.
Your vote for Trump or lack of a vote also means a win for the KKK, which in turn will undermine the efforts taken to try to bring the discussion of race relations on the table.
Your vote for Trump or lack of a vote just determined a supreme court judge that will push Trump ideologies not just for your generation but generations after you.
Your vote for Trump or lack of a vote is partially responsible for all the wrong that could happen in the next four years and it will not be making America great again.
I hope you can sleep tonight.
