Trump suggests forthcoming US election be cancelled

Donald Trump has been hit with a below the belt attack after a major supporter of Jeb Bush sponsored a full-page newspaper advert targeting Trump as a “BULLYionaire” who he says is wooing crowds with “forked-tongue hatefulness.”

In the advert which is currently trending, Michael Fernandez, a billionaire and Cuban immigrant who founded MBF Healthcare Partners, L.P, writes a personal letter to potential voters, urging them to reconsider what he sees as the dangers of electing the bombastic billionaire businessman.

“See the ‘hater’ for what he is — an insecure, narcisstic BULLYionaire with a hunger to be adored,” Fernandez writes.

Fernandez also draws comparisons to Adolf Hitler in the hard-hitting letter which was first reported by Politico.

“History reminds us that when governments promise enticing favors, and fail to deliver, the people lose confidence. They become scared and seek out strong — and frequently despotic — leaders. We saw that in the Great Depression and many other moments in history. Look at Hitler in Germany, Mussolini in Italy and Peron in Argentina. When people lose hope, they are susceptible to those who offer to think for them,” he wrote.
