An Open Letter to Donald Trump

To (because you are in no way “Dear”) Mr. Trump:

If you truly care about this incredible country then I and the majority of its citizens (those with and without documentation) disrespectfully demand that you withdraw your candidacy immediately. You are not prepared. You are not qualified. You are not welcome.

Americans crave freedom. You would shatter that fundamental right and instead grant it as a privilege to the select worthy. Therefore, you are not welcome to lead this country.

Americans value integrity. You have never understood the meaning of the word, nor has anything you’ve done with your life even accidentally shown an ounce of it. Therefore, you are not welcome to lead this country.

Americans value meritocracy. The quality of our work and the celebration of our success fuels us to persevere. You have no merit. Therefore, you are not welcome to lead this country.

America is brave; you are a coward. America is creative; you are cardboard. America is a proud country; you may be proud, but you are only one syllable of the word “country.

Therefore, you are not welcome to lead this country. 

Continuing your bid for the 2016 presidency contradicts every sacrifice this nation has grappled with over its centuries’ history. You’ll unravel the semblance of civil rights equity we’ve only recently begun to approach. You’ll dismantle institutions painstakingly developed to protect and support disadvantaged citizens. You’ll flush billions of gallons of patriots’ blood, shed in wars fought against tyranny, oppression, prejudice, and inequity – all of which you exemplify – down the fucking toilet.

You will destroy America. Therefore, you are not welcome to lead this country.

Do you have any idea how much you’ve already damaged the fabric of American life? Do you care how many lives would be ruined or lost if you were sworn in as America’s 45th commander in chief? If the answer to either of these questions is yes then you are not welcome to lead this country because you are a fascist. If the answer to either of these questions is no then you are not welcome to lead this country because you are an idiot.

Either way: we do not want you. Unfortunately, the loud minority (and America’s less-than-perfect electoral system) may disregard that fact. Therefore, it’s on you to be a fucking adult and drop out.

Here is a modest loan of my two cents: withdraw before you are undermined by a democratic defeat or, worse, humiliated by the destruction you’ll eventually realize you’ve wreaked should you somehow actually end up in office. With an ego the size of yours aren’t you at least somewhat intimidated by the prospect of becoming the worst American villain in history?

If the answer to that question is no, you’re again an idiot. If it’s yes, you’re again  a fascist. The American people have no tolerance for either. We do not not negotiate with terrorists, so this is neither conversation nor debate.

Withdraw. Rescind. Leave.

Disrespectfully,

The majority
