That was the objective of this crowd and the Head of state who asked to assemble on his behalf. Liberty of journalism is the first target of fascists almost everywhere, as they look for to silence resistance and suppress any information that contradicts the alternate truth that their conceited leader produces to sustain his racist fantasy globe. This freedom is preserved in our Constitution due to the fact that a healthy democracy is not feasible without a free press. There is no doubt that each day that Donald Trump
continues to hold the powers of the Presidency offers a major danger to the safety and security of millions of American and to the security of our nation.
