Dear Mr. President

Dear President Trump,

Congratulations on being elected to the office of President. It’s going to be a tough 4 years and I wish you all the best. Many Americans voted for you because they were tired of not being properly represented by their elected officials. They joined Tea Parties, they quietly marched on Washington, they called and emailed their Senators and yet, their voices were not heard. The frustration was overwhelming and understandable. You spoke to their souls when you said you loved America. They saw a light at the end of the tunnel. They saw, in you, someone who would stand up to the socialist bullies and give them back the rule of law.

I didn’t see that in you, but I’m hoping I was wrong. Rather than focus on the problems I saw with electing you to office, I want to focus on what could go right. I’m writing to tell you what I think most of us want to see from your 4 years in office. This is certainly what I want to see:

  1. Respect the rule of law. Do not overstep the bounds of the Presidency. Hold Congress accountable to the Constitution. Guide them to be better.
  2. Take time to implement the roll back of 8 years of bad decisions. Do what you said and let the smartest people around you take care of the details. It took 8 years to make a mockery of this country. We’re patient enough to give you more than a week to sanely turn things around.
  3. Stay off Twitter and other social media. We would like a President who has more to say than what can be put in a 140 character tweet. Set an example for deeper thinking.
  4. Grow into the most amazing statesmen we’ve seen in modern history. Pull off #1, not by ‘in your face’ tactics, but with diplomacy and tact. Be firm. Be wise. We love that you want America to be great, just remember why she IS great.
  5. Bash the ideology of socialism without bashing or bullying the Democrats. Not all who consider themselves Democrats are nasty people. They are our fellow Americans and deserve to be heard.

You have the hopes of a freedom loving nation riding on your shoulders; the hope that doing the right thing and caring about people will matter again; the hope that the individual still has rights and justice will prevail.

I sincerely wish you and your family the best of everything in these next 4 years.

Your fellow American,

Lisa Doby
