Letter: We must stop Donald Trump’s campaign

Taylor Tougaw

We can’t pretend that this is a normal election where both candidates are qualified for the job or that they deserve equal treatment. We can’t stand by with our future on the line.

We can’t let this great nation be led by a man who can be baited by any insult, who lies consistently, who has had zero political experience, who consistently disrespects women, who has shown that he cares nothing for the middle and lower classes, who has likely paid little to no income taxes, and who has shown a propensity for ignorance.

Commanding the most powerful military in the world requires a steady and rational mind, a “winning” temperament, and a respect for other nations, none of which are qualities held by this candidate.

Heading a political party requires inclusivity and an ability to work with others, neither of which are qualities held by this man.

Representing America abroad requires levelheadedness, respect, and the ability to speak clearly off the cuff time and time again, and this man has proven time and time again that he is not capable of doing this.

Being the President of the United States requires the ability to command respect from other world leaders, which he will never be able to do.

Being the President of the United States requires patience, something that this man does not have.

Being the President of the United States requires the desire to make the country a better place for every single citizen, not just the ones who fit into a certain population of supporters.

Being the President of the United States requires the ability to face criticism and disrespect, something that “Donald” has shown that he can’t do.

We can’t stand by and allow this man to make a joke of our country, no more than he already has. We can’t stand idly by and allow money that should go to our infrastructure, education, and defense be put toward a ridiculous Wall that will do nothing to protect our nation from the real problems that we face. We can’t stand by and allow this hotheaded narcissist to be elected President.

It is time to wake up! It is time to think critically about what is truly being decided this November. This is our future!

Do you really want to put your future in the hands of someone who will fire upon a vessel simply for making rude gestures? Who finds no issue in restricting the freedom of the press?

This is not a plea to vote for Hillary, or to vote Democrat. This is a plea for America to reject Donald Trump.

For while a President’s ability to do good for our country may be limited, the ability of the Executive to bring our country to its knees has been solidified.

These claims are backed up by numerous newspapers and by Trump himself.

Signed,

A Very Concerned American
