The comment "unfollowing" Jessica has also sparked over 840 replies.

I am listening to the testimonies crying out. I am hearing God’s anointed power in the hearts that are steadfast. I am hopeful that God will deliver the souls of the righteous who are crushed in spirit. I have resilient faith that anything hate can do, LOVE can do better. #BlackoutTuesday."

Trump 2020."
