It’s good that Twitter is taking steps to help US Voters because well, trump sure isn’t. FYI, that name was intentionally left un-capitalized. Why even bother giving the man that much respect. The clown-president has already basically murdered 200,000 current actual once-living Americans. The conspiracy-theorist-in-chief has made us look like fools to the rest of the world in the process. He has systematically robbed our children’s children’s of their future by changing important environmental and economic regulations. All for the sole purpose of achieving some sick, incomplete sense of glory.
