_A Letter to Trump:
As a Latino immigrant and an American citizen, married to a Muslim Jordanian-American, it’s difficult to understand how you, the leading Republican candidate is using xenophobia to win votes.
I recognize that you have an irrational fear of people from different countries, cultures, and religions, but it is our vote that you must earn if you intend to be considered for the job.
Yes, you are applying to serve 321 million people made up of white, black, Asian, Latino, gay, straight, and they are all Americans living in one nation; the United States of America.
Understand that mainly immigrants built America. Recognize that immigrants are an asset and not a liability for this country. Instead, emphasize on creating a legal system to allow the right people to enter the country while consciously making an effort to better integrate them within our society.
In short, Mr. Trump, in order for you to become the President of this great country as a world leader, you must understand that you will be working for all of us. The ability to listen and accept different opinions; to inspire, motivate and unite are requirements for the position of President. There is no tolerance to destroy, divide and hatred.
Most importantly, stop your xenophobic speeches that promote hate to win votes. This country is called the United States of America for a reason: to unite!
