American elections -2016

On 03/Sept/2016 I wrote an article where I argued that Americans should vote for Donald Trump. Today I came across a YouTube video from a renowned public speaker from Europe (Slavoj Zizek) who also voices a similar opinion:   And here is the link to my original post: https://amitmamgain.com/2016/09/03/yes-you-can/ Hope people in the USA read my blog post in time 🙂 May the best man win 😛     Advertisements
