Russell Simmons Open Letter To Donald Trump
The shocking presidential election results divided the country, and many public figures are speaking out about the chaos that ensued–including Oprah and Russell Simmons.
After 18-months of divisive campaign rhetoric, Donald Trump snagged the presidency with an overwhelmingly number of electoral college votes.
Anti-Trump protests have gripped American streets in the wake of his victory.
Music mogul Russell Simmons weighed in on the pandemonium writing an open letter to his ‘old friend.’
“Donald, you cannot target a religious group of people,” Simmons wrote. “That is dangerous. You cannot separate families and deport people who have only known this country as their home. That is immoral. Donald, you cannot further militarize the police and empower them to antagonize and terrorize black communities.”
This isn’t the first time Simmons has tried to advise his former colleague. In 2015, Simmons wrote another open letter to Trump via Global Grind asking him to “stop the bullish*t.”
