I am not an American citizen. I have no right to vote in the United States of America. I did not vote during the 2016 presidential election, but I know many people who did. I know many people who voted for all sides. I even know people who voted for the guy with the Wellington boot as a hat who promised everyone in America a pony if he was elected.

According to the copious amounts of “Bernie Should Have Won” and “Hillary ‘16” bumper stickers on ETSU students’ vehicles on campus, I assume that many people aren’t really happy with the outcome of this last election. There has also not been positive rhetoric published about the current president in college publications across the country.

However, I would like to ask one question to people who dislike Donald Trump as president: do you like to read “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets”?

The book was printed and bound by Quebecor World.

Why should East Tennessean readers care? Because Quebecor World used to be located in Kingsport, Tennessee, but was closed down in 2006.

Clara Dougherty was one of many workers employed by Quebecor World. She was retrenched after 25 years of service to the book manufacturing company. Dougherty, along with the other 424 other Kingsport employees, lost their jobs because of the company switching to electronic resources.

President Donald Trump has been focused on raising the amount of job opportunities for American citizens.

In my home country of South Africa, the president and other prominent members of government, have been heard singing “Kill the Boer!” This song translates to the government wanting to kill the white minority ruling party during the Apartheid era. However, Apartheid has been gone for over two decades and the song is still being sung by important South Africans.

Do not criticize the American president for fighting for American lives. Your president could be singing songs about killing you. Instead, he is trying to give you a better future.
