Low lives,Trump will be fine. If only the city cared this much about a doubling in the number of shootings and a large spike in murders. 🤷♂️. $17M dollars A YEAR down the drain. Think how many hours of criminal defense attorney time that would buy! Business is business NYC should be sued for cancelling Trump contracts. Prez Trump never incited the riot. Proof is coming out there were outside groups involved. Hatred, jealousy n the reach of the democratic machine is motivating the destruction of our President. America is watching!
Yup. They think they can erase him just like the ancients tried to do to the monuments and faces of those before them. He has outed who these self-righteous POSs are. CHUCK SCHUMER: I want to tell you...you have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. Good!
