You have been pretty busy since becoming the President of the United States. You have pulled out of foreign deals, tried to pass orders, and you have not passed up any chance to speak your mind. And of course, I cannot forget to mention undoing all of the work put in by the previous administration. That's quite a lot! Your words and actions have not gone unnoticed. In fact, all over the world, people are talking about what you've had to say. However, we would appreciate if you were to stop talking, because you are embarrassing us. No more misspelled or insensitive tweets, no more ridiculous claims, and please no more unwanted commentary. Here are some examples of the how you have embarrassed the United States so far.
As a Canadian watching the farce that is American politics right now, I continue to be quite amused by what you feel is the right thing to do. There is no question that you becoming the United States' president has bolstered your celebrity status. The problem is, it's also cemented your status as a complete fool, and it seems to have spread throughout your gene pool.
Following the unprecedented 2017 presidential elections, our nation has been swept into unknown territory. Our country appears to be more polarized than ever at least politically, which right now seems like the only thing people can talk about. And I must say it’s not for nothing. When the President of the United States is consistently in the spotlight for a multitude of wrongdoings ranging from sexual harassment charges to sheer ignorance regarding politics, it’s natural to question what is going on here.
I met you first when I saw your name on this big ugly slab of a building driving down the West Side Highway as a youth, and I hated you. Today, I disagree with nearly every value you've put forth and I openly present these opinions to most everyone I know. You made my Grandmother cry when you won the election. She's a really cool lady. You should read some of her work, she follows you—and you're much harder to keep up with.
Dear Donald Trump,
This is not a reality show. You might think it is but I'm telling you, it's not. You are not going to succeed at this debacle of a presidency. You will be brought down. All the jokes and lies need to end. What you might think is a funny joke, some believe is a horrible joke. America is really worried at the direction that you're taking us. You act in strange ways and say stupid things. You behave in a childish manner and don't seem to care about what the press has to say. I'll repeat it again. This is not a reality show, Sir.
I am not sure what you think being the president is, but it is not a game so it should not be treated as one. If you are going to treat it as one, then I will not refer to you as Mr. President, or any name for that matter. Your role as president is not the same as your role in The Apprentice, where you can just do and say whatever you feel. This is real life, and there are real consequences to every single thing that you say, and in your case everything that you tweet. With foreign countries respect of the United States lowering daily, the possibilities of war are rising. Whether it is the fact that these countries do not like Trump, or that he offends their countries, cultures, and religions, the name Donald Trump is not very popular in other places (hard to believe in the most sarcastic voice possible).
Why apologize? Why should actors and other creatives keep apologizing to you for expressing their feelings? You have never apologized. In some ways that wouldn't be such a big deal, or at least not unprecedented. I was always bothered when Obama declined to apologize for certain things he did and said. Stupid. But not unprecedented. The real problem, though, is that you don't actually believe that you have ever made a mistake that warrants an apology. The difference between you and Obama is that he did not do something daily that most of us feel he owed us an apology.
Although I might not particularly agree with your political views or the actions in which you have taken in office, I owe you a thank you. The things that you do and say are all over various platforms of media. While the context in which they consist of do not always stem from the best of topics and reason for being covered by media, you keep us media savvy people quite busy. As an intern at a media based, content-driven company, it is nearly impossible to not read and write about you. Whether it's tweeting, press conferences and interviews, or simply taking video and photographs of you during your daily routine, we are always on our toes waiting for you to say or do something worth covering. Being that you are always tweeting, releasing statements, and barely attempting to hide from those with any form of camera, it is not difficult for you to be an everyday part of our media coverage.
Dear Mr. Trump,
In the last couple of months since you took over as President of the US, you have diminished more than just your own name, but rather, your entire family’s name too. Melania and you are in the midst of a very complicated and unusual relationship and it is believed by some that you don’t even care for each other (Is Melania really just in it for the money and fame?). Recently, you tried to grab Melania’s hand after leaving the airplane on your Middle East trip & she nudged your hand away and gave you a dirty look. Also, your daughter, Ivanka has been severely scrutinized by the media mostly because of your wrongdoings. As President, you must start to think about your family before you bring them all down. I write this letter to you, Mr. President to challenge you to change your values, integrity, and approach for the country and for your own family.
