600 American Writers Shun Trump Candidacy In An Open Letter

As Donald Trump holds one rally after the other in the United States, and tries every antic possible to win over more supporters, he just lost out on around 600 people.

Donald Trump sure has a large group of supporters, helping him in one state after the other in the presidential race. However, his hate rhetoric, double standards and overall future plan of making America “great again” has also left thousands of people hating him.

Now, around 600 American writers, including Stephen King, Cheryl Strayed and Junot Diaz, are standing up against his candidacy and have signed an “open letter to the American people.”

The letter, posted on the Literary Hub website, clearly explains that the business mogul “deliberately appeals to the basest and most violent elements in society" and "denigrates women and minorities."

While tens of thousands of Americans are enthusiastically voting for Trump in the hope that he will make the country a better place to live in, these writers are trying to open people’s eyes to the fact that the two-faced presidential candidate will take them nowhere.

The letter also explains that the American history has always aimed at bringing people from different backgrounds together rather than dividing them further, and goes to show that Trump’s plans simply encourage hatred and discrimination amongst the country’s citizens.

It is important that Trump supporters soon acknowledge the fact that the man they are supporting is nothing more than a liar, manipulator and an actor and is certainly not fit to become the president of the United States.

On May 25, Sen. Elizabeth Warren said the same thing about Donald Trump, calling out his love for money. She termed him a “money grubber” and said he “will never be the president of the United States.” However, Trump had a rather childish response to the statement and called Warren "Pocahontas."

Surely, America needs someone better to replace Obama than a man who only responds to people by calling them names and making derogatory remarks.
