Addressing the participants, Muslim Voice for Trump chief and Republican leader Sajid Tarar said that President Trump has fulfilled his promises to the people and wants to see President Trump again for the rule of law in the country. He spoke in support of President Trump’s immigration policy, saying “the United States is a country of immigrants and Republicans have always supported immigrants.”
He said that these are the policies of the Republican Party due to which a large number of immigrants are living a prosperous life in the United States today. Democratic Party leader Dr. Anwar Masood blamed President Donald Trump for the deaths caused by the corona virus and said that President Trump has no policy regarding the corona virus. Corona spread rapidly as beaches opened in Florida and California. “It’s not a China virus, it’s a dangerous virus,” he said. The United States has the capacity to deal with the virus. He said President Trump’s policies hurt the US economy and increased immigration problems, leaving large numbers of people unemployed. He assured the participants that if the Democratic candidate Joe Biden won the election, the deteriorating economic situation in the United States would be rectified.
