Dear President Trump—
I want to wish you a very happy New Year and extend my appreciation for your efforts in keeping America safe. I hope you will not capitulate to the likes of Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, and continue to insist upon a border wall, in whatever form or shape it may take, even if it means declaring a national emergency to get it built!
When you first declared your candidacy for President, I must confess I was somewhat dubious, since there were already at least two excellent conservative candidates in the race, U.S. Senators Ted Cruz (R, TX), and Rand Paul (R, KY). And when you ran against Hillary Clinton in the general election, my vote for you was more of a vote against Crooked Hillary than a vote for you, per se. Or, put another way, I (and the American people) voted for the message rather than the messenger.
Nevertheless, as President, you have exceeded expectations. Your selection of Mike Pence as Vice-President was an excellent choice. Your appointments of Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court were superlative. And Nikki Haley and Kirstjen Nielsen as U.N. Ambassador and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary, respectively, have done outstanding jobs.
Of course, there have been unfortunate choices as well, such as the selection of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General. Clearly, Trey Gowdy would have been a significantly better choice.
But, unlike your predecessors in the Oval Office, you have fulfilled most of your campaign promises, including (1) terminating the horrendous Obama-Kerry Iran “deal”, (2) renegotiating NAFTA, and (3) moving our Israeli Embassy to its rightful place in Jerusalem.
Although you have not come close to “draining the swamp”, you have made some significant strides, by firing James Comey and Andrew McCabe. Unfortunately, many “swamp creatures”, like Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein still remain, and are doing irreparable harm to our country.
Also, while some may object to your numerous “tweets”, I feel they are absolutely necessary to counter and expose the “fake news”, outright lies, and vile hatred being spread by the blatantly biased and bigoted mass media, particularly CNN (aka the Commiecrat News Network), MSNBC (aka MS-13NBC), The Washington Post, and The New York Times. Rest assured, Mr. President, the more the mass media attack you, the more the American people support you!
And so in conclusion, Mr. President, I would once again hope that you will stand tall and continue to insist upon whatever is necessary to assure complete border security and safety for America and its citizens, and not capitulate to those who would destroy our country for future votes for their corrupt and morally bankrupt political party.
