Trump might have created a lot of enemies, out of his 99 problems, a monkey is not one He was recently choosen by a China's magical monkey king, Geda as winner of the US presidential election.
Geda is a prophetic primate from Shiyan Lake Ecological Tourism Park in Hunan, and has a history of predicting the right result by placing a banana between two opponents, and Geda will go to eat the monkey of the preferred monkey.
His prediction came through during the 2016 European football championships. The monkey went for Portugal as the winner of the competition, and it happened.
So, last Thursday, Geda was put to a test again. He was asked to pick the winner of the US election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, using his banana prediction game. This time the monkey went for Donald Trump, gave it a big hug and a kiss.
Though Chinese-Americans don't like Trump, Geda seems to believe that Trump will win the election

Nevada representative, Joe Heck said at a rally in Las Vegas on Saturday said;
I believe any candidate for President of the United States should campaign with common ethical and moral values and decency. I accept that none of us are perfect. However, I can no longer look past this pattern of behavior and inappropriate comments from Donald Trump. Therefore, I cannot, in good conscience, continue to support him nor can I vote for Hillary Clinton.
I believe our only option is to formally ask Mr. Trump to step down and allow Republicans the opportunity to elect someone who will provide us with the strong leadership so desperately needed and one that Americans deserve.

Former Utah governor Jon Huntsman, while speaking with the Salt Lake Tribune, asked Mike Pence to lead the ticket, not Trump.
In a campaign cycle that has been nothing but a race to the bottom — at such a critical moment for our nation — and with so many who have tried to be respectful of a record primary vote, the time has come for Governor Pence to lead the ticket.
Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, while speaking with Utah's Fox 13 News;
I’m out. I can no longer in good conscience endorse this person for president. It is some of the most abhorrent and offensive comments that you can possibly imagine.
I wished Mike Pence was at the top of the ticket and we're going to have to figure that out at the — in the coming days and weeks, but it is tragic the way it is right now.

As a woman, a mother, and a grandmother to three young girls, I am deeply offended by Mr. Trump's remarks, and there is no excuse for the disgusting and demeaning language.

For the good of the party, and the country, he should step aside. I will not vote for Hillary Clinton who has her own trouble with the truth, has a major integrity deficit and seems to hold a disdain for hard-working Americans. With such uncertainty the role of Congress as a check and balance to the executive branch is more important than ever. It is vital for Republicans to maintain leadership of the House and for me to continue to represent and raise Utah’s voice in Washington.

The Trump campaign will be facing the media again to defend the recent Tax documents of Donald Trump obtained by the New York Times. The tax documents show that the GOP candidate may not have paid taxes for 18 years.
According to the New York Times, the tax document shows that Trump declared a $916 million loss on his 1995 income, and this deduction is large that could make him legally avoid tax for 18 years.

The tax documents of his 1995 tax records had never seen the light of the day before, and during the presidential debate, Hillary Clinton asked that Donald Trump release his tax records, but he told Hillary that he will release the documents, even though his lawyer go against it, but he would only release it if Hillary Clinton release her 30,000 emails
In a statement from the Trump campaign;
Mr. Trump is a highly-skilled businessman who has a fiduciary responsibility to his business, his family and his employees to pay no more tax than legally required.
That being said, Mr. Trump has paid hundreds of millions of dollars in property taxes, sales and excise taxes, real estate taxes, city taxes, state taxes, employee taxes and federal taxes, along with very substantial charitable contributions.
Donald Trump had always claimed that he could not release the tax documents because they are under audit.
rules that are especially advantageous to wealthy filers would have allowed Mr. Trump to use his $916 million loss to cancel out an equivalent amount of taxable income over an 18-year period."
The Times added: "Although Mr. Trump’s taxable income in subsequent years is as yet unknown, a $916 million loss in 1995 would have been large enough to wipe out more than $50 million a year in taxable income over 18 years.
Trump in response to the tax document leakage said that; “The only news here is that the more than 20 year-old alleged tax document was illegally obtained.”
The recent Donald Trump media scandals, from the insinuating that Hillary Clinton should be assassinated, calling on Russians to hack Clinton 30,000 emails, disrespect for army veterans and many others have led to a few of his supports reversing their support for the GOP candidate.
According to The Guardian, a request was open that allows Trump supporters send them an email on why they are voting for the Republican candidate, and more than 100 emails was received and they all talked about his Muslim ban, and his immigration reforms, and as election season draw near, another email was sent out to heck on those people, and from the 12 emails that was sent out, 10 replied and four of those people had jumped off his campaign trail.
One of the responses was from a 48, year old scientist from California, he said;
At first I was seduced by his showmanship and strong-man persona and charisma, and by his strong borders patriotism and willingness to speak about the problem with Islam, and considering banning all Muslims from coming into the USA.
But when he said the judge of Mexican heritage wouldn’t be fair in his lawsuit and women should be punished for having abortions, that really turned me off him.
The scientist have been flipping the coin between Sanders and Trump, but now he has said he would be going with Clinton.
Another 66 years old Biomedical engineer from Hawaii who was looking to vote for Trump so he can create a total social upheaval to get rid of corruption and paid interest in politics, in his recent response if he would vote for Trump said;
But now – fortunately? – Trump has demonstrated that he is much more than a narcissistic buffoon.
Anyone who is willing to put the trigger for America’s nuclear weapons in the hands of someone like this is placing the future of human civilization at risk. I believe we must do anything to prevent Trump from ever reaching the Oval Office. Even if it means voting for Hillary Clinton.
A yoga teacher and writer from Tennessee, aged 29, on why he won't be voting for Trump said;
What does bother me is Trump’s authoritarian tendencies. I believe it would be safe to assume he will grow the American police and surveillance states, which are already spiraling out of control. HRC isn’t any better though. While Trump seems intent on banning Muslims, HRC’s record on foreign policy (and support from war-hawks) reflect she is more likely to bomb them with drones.
Truly, I believe America is getting the candidates it deserves. We will not get out of this mess until people wake up and realize they have more than two choices.
He also said he won't be voting Trump or Clinton, but would vote either Jill Stein or Gary Johnson.
A retiree white male from Sonora Desert said he no longer supports Trump's candidacy because he; "
“seems to be insane. I no longer believe it is possible that he could truly represent the people who support him and need what he promised, For me, more Obama is OK, and that is a vote for Clinton. I will rely on the checks and balances of the US constitution to take care of the rest.
Though some previous supporters stands with Trump and said the media is unfair to Donald J. Trump. According to a 50-year old college professor;
The media is like an extension of the DNC at this point. They’ll intentionally misinterpret or exaggerate anything Trump says to try to help Hillary win the election,” said a 50-year-old college professor from California.
Also, another 29-year-old Hispanic attorney from Florida said;
Everyone wants so desperately to believe he’s Hitler 2.0, and their warped image of him is clearly looming large at the forefront of their minds – so much so that they can’t help but attach the worst possible connotation to even vague, offhand quips like these.
Before Mike Pence was picked as Donald Trump running mate, he had disagreed on many Donald Trump policies, including the banning of Muslim migrants coming into the country. Donald Trump seems to be hitting back at the speaker of the house, Paul Ryan for endorsing him late.

Mike Pence have decided to disagree with his running mate Donald Trump, while speaking to Fox news on Wednesday, Mike said;
I strongly support Paul Ryan, strongly endorse his reelection.
I believe we need Paul Ryan in leadership in the Congress of the United States to rebuild our military, to strengthen our economy and to ensure that we have the kind of leadership in this country that will make America great again.
Trump in the other hand doesn't seem to like Paul Ryan that much, and he has praised Paul's rival, Paul Nehlen, who is also vying for a seat in Washington. Trump when asked about the endorsement of Paul Ryan, Trump said;
I like Paul, but these are horrible times for our country. We need very strong leadership. We need very, very strong leadership. And I'm just not quite there yet. I'm not quite there yet.
Mike Pence said he had a discussion with Donald Trump on endorsing Paul Ryan, and he gave him a go ahead. Pence said;
He strongly encouraged me to endorse Paul Ryan in next Tuesday’s primary, and I’m pleased to do it.
Donald Trump doesn't like the whole chant of black lives matter by some black student protesters, and had asked his security aide to send them out of his rally, and also from their school campus where the rally is taking place.
The students are protesting Donald Trump stance with the Ku Klux Klan, after his failure to deny the group during an interview on CNN. In his recent rally at Radford University in Virginia on Monday, Donald Trump said;
Get them out of here please, get them out…get them out. Are you from Mexico?”
According to a footage that was released by Noah Gray of CNN, the students were seen leaving the packed auditorium in a long queue while chanting and waving the Black Lives Matter poster. A Time Magazine photographer that was going to take a picture of the students was thrown to the ground by secret agents.
Mr Trump paused his speech and said;
Get them out of here please…trouble, nothing but trouble.
But when the whole disruptions were over, Trump said to the supporters;
Folks, you’re going to hear it once – all lives matter.You have some people who are just looking for trouble and if you’re looking for trouble, I don’t want to talk. We have to act tough, and we have to act swiftly.
Hours later, after the protest at Radford University, some group of protesters at Valdosta State University in Georgia who was standing silently before the speech of Donald Trump were removed from the arena and away from campus.
One of the students who spoke to USA Today, said;
I think we got kicked out because we’re a group of black people and I guess with what’s going on in America, they’re afraid we’re doing to say something or do something, but we just really wanted to watch the rally.
Another protester said;
we weren’t saying anything, we came in together as a group to see what the Presidential candidate had to offer to our campus, to our community and our country.

He applauded supporters and said that they have sent a message out, and the message they sent was;
too late for the same-old, same-old establishment politics and establishment economics. The people want real change.
