Trump on the Stump

i shot my horse and bought a Maserati.
gas was cheap and my skin was white
so i was in good shape to cash in on
the american dream. now i’m getting
ready to cast my first vote for white
power the democratic way. my guy
is going to build a big beautiful wall
as soon as he gets elected, and hang
all them Mexican beaners and Arab rag
heads from one big strong american tree.
