This is why I will vote for Trump

To the Editor:

I am not a big Donald Trump fan. However, this man is the one who proved in 2016 that America was sick of business as usual in Washington.

He and his cabinet have undeniably accomplished a lot in four years and despite what I think about him as a person, I can take four more years of him and his cabinet as opposed to a future that could possibly destroy America. So when I vote “R” in November, I’m voting not for a person, I am voting for: secure borders, respect for our flag, one nation under God, the Second Amendment, capitalism and the American dream, the right to speak and not be censored, our policemen and our veterans, and continued lower taxes for small business
