You can claim all you want that Donald J. Trump is not your president, but as long as you claim American citizenship, he is. The fact that you may have voted otherwise changes nothing. Sulking, raging, and yes protesting doesn’t change a thing. I respect your right to a differing opinion. A peaceful demonstration of such ideas is your right. Peaceful demonstrations do not destroy property, and should not inconvenience or offend those who disagree.
I will not pretend to be completely happy about the result of this election. The time has come to stop our hand wringing and begin to work to solve the serious issues facing our country. The POTUS does have some good ideas. More things should be made in this country. There should be more good paying jobs. Our failing infrastructure should be fixed. The tax code needs to be simplified and our nation needs to be secure. I just seriously doubt it can be done by utilizing the talents of one like-minded group of people. These are serious problems and everyone needs to work together to solve them. I am addressing this plea to President Donald Trump.
Please address issues that matter to all of us. We care about human rights. We care about the air we breathe and the water we drink. We care about our children’s ability to afford secondary education. Your news conferences and rallies entertain those who support you, but how about having a “listening ” tour for those with different views, rather than just another victory lap. Please listen to our concerns too. If you really want to be our president, our voices should matter.
