Letter: President doesn’t speak for majority of Americans

President doesn’t speak for majority of Americans

This is not about being a Democrat or a Republican. It is all about being American. I am upset and deeply saddened by the recent comments of our president.

I immigrated to this great country in 1981 and I have been a proud American by choice for over 20 years. Please don’t believe that President Trump speaks for most Americans.

America is still the country where people can grow beyond the circumstances of their birth – where you can work your way up from a dishwasher to a millionaire or even a billionaire.

Over the last 37 years, I have been privileged to experience firsthand what makes America the best country in the world to live in. It is our personal freedom, our religious freedom, our multicultural population with a “can do” spirit, our beliefs in equal rights, our encouragement to try new ideas, our tolerance and our tremendous patriotism.

Ladies and gentlemen, the American Dream is alive. We, the people, won’t let it die!
