Currently there is a huge uproar about U.S. President, Donald Trump, (allegedly) referring to majority black countries in Africa and Haiti as “shithole” countries.

I do not doubt that Donald Trump has said these things— he’s already proven himself to be quite the racist. I only use the word ‘alleged’ since Donald Trump currently wants to change our libel laws and crack down on his “internal enemies.”  And, unfortunately, I do not have the funds to be sued in regards to libel issues. Or the time to be spent in prison over what was probably said and denied…

Happy New Year!
