    The irony and hypocrisy is that Trump and Nikki said "We will be taking down names" o_O Some double standards when it comes to naming and shaming others for not siding with Trump's administration policies but not ok for others to name those that sided, donated and voted for Trump. Is this modern day Democracy the Republican way? This actually started back in 2016 and now that elections are around the corner again this has come back up again.

    His tweet contained a graphic titled “Who’s funding Trump?” and listed the names of 44 people who purportedly contributed the maximum amount allowed by campaign finance laws. Their occupations, which, like donor names, are public record, were also listed. Close to a dozen of the donors shown are retirees.

    “Sad to see so many San Antonians as 2019 maximum donors to Donald Trump,” Castro wrote, naming local businesses whose owners were on the list. “Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.”

    Back in 2016 someone wrote this article in the NYT to "STOP SHAMING TRUMP SUPPORTERS"

    Don't forget the owner of Soul Cycle & Equinox who's facing persons cancelling their memberships with the discovery he's holding a 45 fundraiser this week. His claim is he doesn't agree with what 45 does or say, he's just in it for the taxes, so he shouldn't be shamed.

    It was public information right? I don’t see the problem
    If you are ashamed of who you associate with the problem lies within
