Up until now, I believed the best way to defeat President Donald Trump in 2020 has been to focus on advocating for the federal government to do more to help the lower and middle classes with their economic and financial struggles to survive and to pay their bills. So, I have largely ignored his hateful, dumb, stupid and ignorant remarks in which he demeans, insults, bullies and disrespects all minority groups, women and immigrants.

I have done this partly because I believed from day one this has all been a big act and that he is a master manipulator and con-man who really doesn’t believe the ridiculous, idiotic and moronic things he says, but he cleverly figured out he could win the presidency by pretending he actually believes in what he thinks 51% of the American people believe in – hate. But his hate talk has now become too dangerous. He is playing with fire.

This big act and the game has to stop.

I call on all of the good-hearted conservative republicans in the United States who have a conscience to join Nikki Haley and to call out Trump on his hate talk. The people who he has insulted and disrespected don’t deserve to hear any more of his nonsense. He might have already damaged our country beyond repair because sometimes there are things that can never be made right. I hope it is not too late.
