85,000 People Sign Petition To Remove Lana Marks, Trump’s US Ambassador To South Africa, For Misrepresenting SA To The World!

It appears Trump’s new US Ambassador in Pretoria, Lana Marks, is very unpopular on both sides of the aisle.

The petition however is from people who would traditionally support Trump!
