Your President, My President Nonsense
We are almost 2 years into the 45th President’s first term in office. And we still have Leftists parading around stating that Donald Trump in not their president. Well he is your president as long as you are an American Citizen. No matter where you reside, no matter who you voted for in the 2016 election.
During my lifetime there have been 10 Presidents of the United States. I didn’t vote for all of them. But they are all still MY president. Half of them I couldn’t vote for because I wasn’t of age to vote during their elections. But more than half of them I paid attention to as I was becoming an adult. To see their policies and what they believed.
I haven’t agreed with everything by any one of these presidents. Some I have disagreed with more than others. And others I have agreed with more often than not. But they have all been my president. Just as every elected president has been yours.
As American’s we are not required to like our president. We are not required to be in favor of our president’s administration or policies. But that doesn’t make the president not ours. The only thing is that sometimes the president is not our choice for president. And we hope for a better choice in 4 to 8 years time.
So please all the Leftists and neverTrumpers. Please stop staying that Donald Trump is not your president. Unless you follow through and renounce your Citizenship and move to another country more aligned to your belief structure and ideals.
Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama have all been my presidents. All of them had flaws. I only voted for 2 of them.
Our current president, Donald Trump, is my president. Because I am an American citizen. Donald Trump is flawed. Donald Trump has disappointed me a few times since he became president.
Donald Trump is your president too. Even if you voted for Hillary Clinton or some 3rd party candidate or wrote in someones name. If you didn’t vote at all in 2016 then shame on you. But he is still your president.
