A real friend will always tell you the truth and that’s exactly what Russell Simmons did when he penned an open letter to Donald Trump.
Over 30 plus years you have been an amazing friend; endorsing my books, coming to my shows, flying me on your planes, your helicopters, and even allowing my family members and myself to stay in your house in Florida many times. So, it kinda pains me to know that my public statements about your candidacy have strained or ruined our friendship. However, the fact is, what’s at stake is bigger than us.
Trump has been sharing his racist opinions on every subject and leading in the polls in his bid toward the White House.
The self-made millionaire has however, set off a fire storm of controversy with his hateful comments regarding Muslims and Jews. Therefore Russell Simmons stood his position by openly and publicly putting his friend in his place. Simmons wanted it to be outwardly known that he is not in agreement with Donald and his prejudice rhetoric. In addition Simmons stressed how he would NOT support his friend if he initially wins the republican candidacy for the White House bid as a result.
It’s sadly enough, some Americans believe President Barack Obama is Muslim and for this fact, he’s somehow aiding and abetting these terrorist threats toward the United States with no plan of action. And with “The Donald” spewing all of this hate in an intolerant tone, it is no doubt setting the tone for a possible race war.
