Donald Trump is about to CHECKMATE all chess players


DONALD TRUMP is PLANNING to BAN CHESS IN the UNITED STATES and soon all over North America !

On Tweeter, Donald tweets as Chess is originally from the Middle East, it should not had ever be imported in North America. Chess is a representation of war which encourage terrorists all over the world. If the world is so corrupted, you can put blame on this EVIL game.

First offence to be caught playing chess: One week in jail with recording of speech by Donald Trump all day.
