"Trump!... you have claimed that the US has oppressed terrorism and it is dealing with a virus that cannot be seen by the naked-eye. Aren't you ashamed of yourself??"

"Trump! the world is dealing with wars, poverty and occupation and today you claim that you will heal? Such diseases are results of your improper policies."
