Letter: Trump is a leader, can be trusted

Let me tell you why I like Donald Trump and want him to be our next president.

We know, of course, he is a winner. To be a winner in life, you have to be intelligent, a hard worker and fight to be at the top.

The people that work with you, or under you, must feel you are a leader, they can trust your judgment, and above all, know when your plans are made, you will follow through.

Trump is an American first, and a patriot who would protect all legal citizens should he be elected as our next president. He is not beholden to the Washington elite (establishment). He also knows it is critical the Republicans win the presidency, and maintain the House and Senate. If this is accomplished, the Supreme Court will not be corrupted by a significant imbalance of leftists’ appointments that could last and present big problems for the next half century.

The Democratic Party has controlled the presidency for the last 7-and-a-half years, and in that time frame they have mismanaged our international policies on trade. Because of this, our debt grows every day, and our armed forces are not favored with investments, so they can maintain themselves, and keep up.

We need Trump. The Republicans, with Trump, can win the presidency, and bring our country back from the brink.
