Donald Trump has never been known as a very nice person. He likes to bully his way through life hurting whomever he feels like hurting. Well, today he again got called out for his lack of a soul and his heartlessness, and this time it was the father of a murder victim who called him out. The father of Mollie Tibbetts, Rob Tibbetts, wrote in an op-ed in Des Moines Register:
‘At the outset, politicians and pundits used Mollie’s death to promote various political agendas. We appealed to them and they graciously stopped.’
‘Sadly, others have ignored our request. They have instead chosen to callously distort and corrupt Mollie’s tragic death to advance a cause she vehemently opposed. I encourage the debate on immigration; there is great merit in its reasonable outcome. I encourage the debate on immigration; there is great merit in its reasonable outcome. But do not appropriate Mollie’s soul in advancing views she believed were profoundly racist.’
‘The person who is accused of taking Mollie’s life is no more a reflection of the Hispanic community as white supremacists are of all white people. To suggest otherwise is a lie. Justice in my America is blind. This person will receive a fair trial, as it should be. If convicted, he will face the consequences society has set. Beyond that, he deserves no more attention.’
He was referring to ignorant posts like this from Donald Trump.

One would think that after a family specifically asks you not to use their deceased loved one as a tool to attack immigrants, you would stop doing so. But one would be wrong…Trump has no heart or soul and feels like he can do whatever he wants with no recourse. Luckily the folks on Twitter held him to task for his boorishness.
