I’ve been accused of being “sexist” for choosing to run against @KamalaHarris in 2022. This is my response to those claims;

We destroy other countries while our own infrastructure falls apart and people are driven to poverty.
#July4th #NoMoreWar
Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.

Dwight D. Eisenhower
A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.
