Dear family and friends who support Trump: I’m scared. Please help.

To my Family and Friends who supported Trump: I’m Scared. Please help.

Dear Trump supporters who call themselves my friends, acquaintances, family, neighbors, colleagues, classmates—those of you who have shared moments in life with me—my fellow Americans.
