Brandon Stanton, popular all around the world for his brainchild blog Humans Of New York, is gaining international support on a recent post he made regarding presidential front-runner Donald Trump.
In what he called “An Open Letter To Donald Trump,” Stanton clearly explained how he never talks about politics or interviews political leaders since he doesn’t want to “risk personal goodwill.” However, apparently the presidential candidate has disgusted him enough that he’s finally voicing his personal opinion.
The letter was absolutely on point and depicted no personal bias, simply referencing the statements and actions the billionaire business mogul has made in the past.
“Because along with millions of Americans, I’ve come to realize that opposing you is no longer a political decision. It is a moral one,” Stanton wrote. “I am a journalist, Mr. Trump. And over the last two years I have conducted extensive interviews with hundreds of Muslims, chosen at random, on the streets of Iran, Iraq and Pakistan. I’ve also interviewed hundreds of Syrian and Iraqi refugees across seven different countries. And I can confirm — the hateful one is you,” he added.
The post not only garnered the attention of some 1.6 million people, but has also been shared around 870,000 times as of Monday night. People from various religious, racial and ethnic backgrounds have responded to the letter.
“From every other part of the world, we are wondering how he is even getting so many votes!” one Facebook user said. The comments that followed were of similar nature, as people called Trump out and claimed he was fueling hate in America.
