A Thank You Letter to Donald Trump
Dear Mr. Trump,
I’m writing to you because I wanted to thank you; you’ve really done so much for me.
I was never really interested in politics. I found it slightly boring and I hated political debates because they just lead to a bunch of yelling and unsettled arguments. When you joined the Presidential race it peaked my interest, mainly because I thought it was humorous that the same man who I best knew for his catch phrase, “you’re fired” on The Apprentice actually thought he had a chance of being elected our next President. Honestly, your candidacy seemed like a joke employed by the government to lighten the hearts of U.S citizens in wake of the all the recent tragedies surrounding us.
And then you started winning.
I couldn’t, and still can’t, believe that people are actually supporting you! I’m completely dumbfounded that you, the same man who’s on marriage number three, led four of casinos into bankruptcy and utilizes social media like a 13-year-old girl, is actually the front runner for the Republican candidacy.
The idea of you being my future President makes my skin crawl, but you did provide me with a new sense of political awareness. I cringed listening to your racist comments and sexist remarks—but at least I was listening. I was so afraid of you getting elected that I started researching other candidates. I learned about their policies and what they stand for and began to develop ideas of who will best suit my way of thinking and living. I now care enough about the future of my country, and therefore pay close attention to politics in order to form my own political opinions— all things I have you to thank for.
So, my dear Trump, I will not be voting for you this upcoming election, but I will be voting because of you.
