For Trump's Fans, foes, frenemies and Twitter followers.
4 years ago I was a single mom with a 3 year old, sobbing while watching my daughter sleep and watching you, Donald Trump, win the election at the same time. My heart hurt so much, like it did for over half the country. The biggest sting came the next day when your supporters showed themselves on my page. I had no idea they were there the whole time. They were hiding. Massive groups of people don't hide like that for no reason. They hid their racist views, their misogynist views, their classist views, or they hid the fact they will put all of those things aside in order for personal gain such as tax breaks for the wealthy. They hid until it was acceptable for them to show themselves. They hid until they realized "Hey, he was elected. All of these other people voted for him too. There's no reason for me to not share my views anymore".
Dear Mr. Trump, These last four years have been... an experience, to say the least. I'm not really sure how else to describe it. From your election in 2016 until your departure this year, you have both entertained and shamed us. You brought out the best and the worst in our country. You stoked the flames of people's hatred. You rekindled our determination to love. Your supporters loved you emphatically. And those who opposed you did so with an earnestness to end all of the trouble you sowed wherever you went and whatever you laid your little hands or nonsensical words on. You both united and divided us.
Dear Mr. Trump, I address you in this letter in the hopes of demonstrating my eternal gratitude towards you. There are so many things I wish to thank you for, but any more than this short list would become quickly redundant. So please. Allow me.
Donald J. Trump, Historical you will forever remain in the eyes of almost every human alive on this planet. I’m sure this brings about one of your rare, but famous, smiles. And I am positive that you have puffed up that chest so proud. You should be. You accomplished everything you set out to do. You made everyone pay attention to you 100% of the time and your ratings were through the roof! People chanted your name from the four corners of these United States. Stand up and pat yourself on the back Donald.
Dear Donald Trump, When you decided to run for President, you had no idea how your term would end. Now, I need to tell you that I don't vote- I never have for personal reasons. Quite frankly, I don't care for politics. What I'm writing to you is ALL based on what the media tells us, whether it is true or not. With that, I was rooting for you. You chose a strong candidate for a VP. I was looking forward to seeing where the next four years would go.
Dear Donald Trump, I present myself to you as Michael Holloway. I am a young, aspiring musician from Chicago who believes everything happening in life, as a whole, works together for good. So many people love to hate you. Although at time I wonder what your personal agenda is, I certainly feel there are those who underestimate you. Being a leader means stepping up when nobody else is going to. Anyone can have an opinion. This takes minimum effort. However, keeping in mind that nobody is perfect, someone who steps up when a leader is needed deserves a certain degree of respect.
Since your campaign for election to President of the United States in 2016, no one in history has dominated the public discourse like you did, Donald J. Trump.
Dear Donald, First, I would like to explain why a picture of Donal Duck and not you. It's because, just like I did when I was a child, I would rather be writing a letter to him than you.
Goodbye Donald, Your fired! For a second time? I admit I do not follow the news and the stories the way most do. Why because it is all just a big reality show and you “The Donald” Mr. president are a master of the illusion.
Dear Mr Trump, It is still fresh in my memory. Our Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi organised "Namaste Trump" a great reception program for you when you came to India in February of last year. I witnessed the program from beginning to end. And I relished your speech word by word. The mega event's illustrative purpose was to highlight your intimacy with India. You wanted to impress 4.4 million Indian Americans well before the U.S. Presidential Election.
Dear Donald, Representative Hakeem Jeffries (D) said it best . You are a 'living, breathing, impeachable offense'. I didn't know who you were until the campaign period of 2015. My first introduction to you was through a meme - and it was a gerbil.
Dear Donnie Trump, The reality show known as your Presidency has been canceled after just one season. Bummer, I know. But your out-of-touch, unprincipled, cognitively hollow, intellectually inept, morally flaccid approach to governing the United States of America has reached its end.
