Biden fixed nothing since 1973,, instigated violence between police and riots, then lied accusing Trump.
Democrat party destroys unity in USA.
Economy: Trump is the best
A vote for Trump is a vote for jobs
With Trump, America built the strongest economy ever seen. Before covid the unemployment rate dropped to its lowest level in half a century, income inequality fell.
The Covid destroyed jobs, but blaming Trump is libel. In balance, he has created 60 millions of jobs, despite the covid.
Trump created over 60 million jobs: the fastest recovery in history !
Biden with a pandemic would never created 60 M jobs, he is unable of it.
All would be worse with Biden.
Only Trump defends our civilization, Biden has a communist project that destroys our values, he supports Islamists, Hezbollah and anti-Semites, flouting human rights.
Trump eliminated Soleimani, then Al-Rimi.
International: Trump succeeds where others fail, he could have won the peace Nobel prize

Democrats did like in germany in 1933, burning books, destroying culture, with censorship.
When you unbolt the statue of churchill, the one who liberated europe from na**sm, you are fascist. we can say that we are anti-racist, anti-slavery, nothing helps: unbolt the incarnation of resistance to Na**sm is to be fascist.
The Democrat Party has become radicalized, it is dangerous for our planet.
Do Democrats Understand What They Are Supporting?
With Biden, russia, china, Iran and islamists Wins.
With Trump, America wins.
Black civil rights attorney Leo Terrell supports the re-election of Trump.
BLM was created in 2013 by Qu**rs and Marxists, but quickly is invaded by radical black supremacists, and radical Islamists from Nation Of Islam
Why are islamists leaders in this “peaceful” organization ?
It became more a communist than an antiracist organization, which manipulates people: asking a socialist and islamic revolution, this is censured.
A young woman was killed by BLM for saying that All lives matter.
May 30, BLM attacked and destroyed the Jewish quarter of Fairfax Avenue in West Hollywood. Shops destroyed, 5 synagogues and 3 Jewish schools degraded with racist graffitis, and chants « F**k the Police and Kill the Je*s »
The rabbi Raichik described the riot as "a new Kristallnacht".
Biden's response, Democrats: silence.
In San Diego, BLM asked the destruction of Israel, with anti-Semitic slogans.
L.A. BLM Melina Abdullah fomented antisemitic violence.
Democrats organized a boycott of the Jerusalem embassy celebration.
https://www.facebook.com/dan.bongino/videos/1486346478215009/
Heartfelt Trump has enough black friends to show Democrats vilify him for a ruthless campaign.
We saw Trump next to M. Jackson or M. Ali.
Biden's son works with China.
Kamala harris family had a plantation with slaves.
Biden is under federal criminal investigation:
https://i78.servimg.com/u/f78/18/23/65/24/91eda910.jpg
Biden never criticized antisemitic from democrat leaders, he has no empathy !
Biden = destruction of the West and rise of islamism
Many blacks do not support BLM, because Black AND All lives matter.. and this is destroying american unity.
People are racists, not statues: the only answer is the education: at schools !
We are All Equal
Did Obama reformed the police after murders ?
Did they fight against racism at school ?
NO.
Biden said Publicly he will contact Hezbollah and Islamist leaders.
USA don’t need illegals or racist migrants
Trump always defends Veterans, not the democrats
Biden loses his memory, has no personality. Secretary says her mental health has declined further: he is not credible.
George Floyd was killed by a Democrat police. ( Dangerous Floyd was selling drugs, was in jail, attacked a woman with a gun and said he will kill her baby)

For Police and Health affairs, each states are independent of the White House.

Black and All lives matter, together, vote Trump !
Trump helped blacks and hispanics more than democrats: they were the first beneficiaries of the jobs created by Trump.
Trump applied the electoral program: he fought against discrimination in hiring against blacks and legal Hispanics.
There is no more racism now in usa than 5 years ago.

No politician can really stop the pandemic until a vaccine is found,
Trump mobilized New factories, and laboratories for protective equipment, testing supplies, therapeutics, and vaccines.
“I am a nurse for 27 years, the response to the pandemic has actually been President Trump's greatest achievement, ”
“He was the one who banned all travel at the beginning of February. In January, no other elected officials who were thinking about COVID, because they had moved on to impeachment. Biden, was vice president for 8 years, so why was he not prepared for a pandemic ? Trump has done a pretty good job. I am impressed with how he got help from the private sector to help get a vaccine in place. He developed new fans. Everything went well " Source : CNN LIVE TV

Trump did the right thing right away !
There is much more deaths per millions of inhabitants, in many countries, exemple in Belgium, than in USA.
Democrats said nobody needed masks, pelosi said it Feb 24th in san Francisco chinatown, and said it was racist to block planes from China
Democrats , like Cuomo in NY, refused to close schools: children bring the covid at home ! Democrats are guilty and killed many people, not Trump.
Trump’s “Made-in-America” strategy is important for restarting our economy—and essential for restoring our country’s promise.
The traditional Gallup end of mandate survey has been released:
56% of Americans say they are better under Trump than they were four years ago (under Obama-Biden). A record.
https://i.servimg.com/u/f78/18/23/65/24/e05f2a10.jpg
With Trump it's the rule of law, jobs and freedoms guaranteed, but with Biden it's anarchy, destroyed suburbs and a clear risk of societal implosion.
Trump fought hard for you and for the country, for our civilization
An american worker who votes for biden commits su***de and destroys the future of his children.
A vote for Trump is a vote for Jobs, freedom and equality.
You need Trump: VOTE TRUMP
