Re “Trump Heads Into 2020 With No Clear Policy Agenda. But It May Not Matter“(Page 14, September 4):
Since Donald Trump became President, he has achieved a substantial amount of success in actualizing his policies and governance. He has ably demonstrated to the citizenry that he does not mince his words and always shoots straight. The author, Michael Crowley, paints him as of a clueless and ignorant mindset does not erode the fact that he is widely admired and respected not only by his critics but by the international community as well. Yes I understand he is not loved by many but he is still the president of the united states. When Crowley states “is a president whose fleeting attention span, impatience with policy details” he defiles not only the president but americans as a whole.
As an 18-year-old teenager from northern New Jersey, I feel ably represented by Donald Trump and I have tremendous hope in his economic policies and his zeal to make America great again. He has without fear, taken China heads in the economic tariffs issue, tightened the immigration policies and most importantly, in the process of introducing a better thought out health care policy. Crowley declares “the news media and his trade showdown with China, Mr. Trump spent little time clarifying his positions on several important agenda items that could bolster his record.” However he has made the most headway with these issues then previous leaders.
We will not become a much bigger world superpower if we shy away from electing a bold President who is not only informed but willing to fight for his country’s respect to be recognized. If as a society we continue bashing and making our head of state look like a clown, we might as well be shouting to the international community that we deserve some “disrespect”. We have to remain as a unified front to the rest of the world even when we have hardships.
As Malcolm X once said, stumbling is not falling and we can still address the POTUS with the respect he deserves. After all, 2020 is not away and all candidates will come to wow us with their policies and manifestos and not with empty rhetoric.
