President Ronald John is the fictional president in my legal/political thriller novel, Betrayal of Justice available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and all online booksellers.
For those new to my website, Betrayal of Justice portrays how things might go in this country, if an anti-Muslim, pro-white, bigot was elected president of the United States.
I sat down, at the end of 2016, and wrote this fictional narrative, and, amazingly, certain events have taken place in our country that have mimicked much of the fictional and outlandish presidential actions portrayed in the novel. I'm quite distressed that actual events and comments (Charlottesville, comments about Haiti and Africa, and other examples) have imitated my 'over-the-top' fictional events and statements.
On this day, as we honor Martin Luther King, Jr., I reflect on the state of this country and the divisiveness that has been stirred, in part, by the President's rhetoric and actions. When asked by a reporter if he was a racist, President Trump replied said, “No, no, I’m not a racist. I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed.”
I'd love to believe him; we all want the POTUS to be the president of all the people, regardless of race, creed, color, national origin or political affiliation. We want to realize Dr. King’s dream. All hate speech, hate crimes, bigotry and racism, in all forms should be called out, regardless of power or position.
Please check out Betrayal of Justice and let me know what you think. Did the novel predict our country's future?
