Think Before You Speak


Donald J. Trump defeated the odds and secured the Presidency in what people are calling a “historical upset”. I want to take a moment to repudiate the false and uneducated accusations of Trump being a “racist”, “homophobic” bigot. Let’s take a look at what these words actually mean.

Racism is defined as “a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities.” Let’s take a look at what President-Elect Trump has vocalized about race. When discussing his campaign, he says, “It’s a movement comprised of Americans from all races, religions, backgrounds, and beliefs who want and expect our government to serve the people…” Without the media distorting and overemphasizing his words, this is the true Donald Trump that over 59 million Americans supported on Election Day. He has been the only candidate to appeal to the inner-city voters and propose plans to revitalize the inner-cities and create new and stable jobs within the communities. By the way, Donald Trump secured nearly 30% of the Hispanic vote, an increase of 3% from the 2012 election.

Regarding him being a homophobe, Trump has said, “As your President, I will do everything in my power to protect the LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology.” He then goes off script and thanks his fellow Republicans as they applaud his support for the LGBTQ community.

President-Elect Trump represents a new and improved vision for our country and will fight for ALL Americans. His economic plan will empower the American worker and salvage small businesses across the nation while creating thousands of new jobs. Our country has been ruled by the political elite for nearly 100 years; give him a chance to prove you wrong and revitalize the American Dream. To my fellow Patriots: Hillary Clinton, a candidate who represented the failed elite Washington establishment, will never exercise the power of Commander-in-Chief. Consider November 8-9, 2016 America’s new Independence Day.
