republican indians i know try so hard to find a reason why they vote for trump.. they, like kanye west are delusional and pretend there’s a connection between a racist-billionaire and Natives that continue to suffer..

I agree, Trump is a fraud,liar,bigot,racist, bully. If money talks then bullshit walks. If a native seen, what disrespect Trump shows to an Navajo code talker who sacrificed his life so we could live is so disgraceful! Calling our women Pocahontas! It’s sickening to my stomach,I want to throw up. If money is the only reason you voted for this corruption you have no heart or soul. I feel sorry for you.
