President of the United States: Joe Biden is who get’s our endorsement this year. We have all watched for the last for years and have seen what Donald J. Trump has done to the United States and has destroyed the dignity of the office of the President of the United States. He has handled the COVID-19 pandemic in the absolute worst way possible, lying about it every step of the way. As Trump supporters enjoy saying “No more bullshit”. Well I agree with them, no more bullshit, it is time to elect Joe Biden and end the bullshit of Donald J. Trump and the most corrupt administration in the history of the U.S. Presidency.
