14. A Trumper would never be a friend of mine
Wed Apr 6, 2022, 05:13 PM
Apr 2022

I am Asian and most Trumpers are racist and would have no use for an Asian friend . She is a Russian by birth and lives in Moscow. Russia is mostly in Asia and neighbors China. Believe it or not, I have friends in China, including Hong Kong and Beijing. Am I supposed to give them up as well? I won't.
They are too dear to me and we never talk about politics.
