President Donald Trump: Would you be willing to give Leonard Peltier in the Federal Pen in Clearview , Florida a full Presidential Pardon so he can go home to his family on the Lakota Nation? He has been in prison far too long and is in bad health. It would mean a great deal to the native people to have this happen, Then he could have his dream and die with his people in his own nation. Thank you Mr. President, I believe in my heart that you will be the President that would be willing to do this. Also I believe you could make it possible for the pipeline to be laid on the border at the same time the wall is being built and both countries could benefit from the revenue. Thank you for taking the time to read this and to think about it. God Bless you and give you all you need as you serve this country during your term

We all know legal and illegal Hispanic immigration has been occurring for many years because of our United States economic opportunities. Why haven't we given our neighboring countries south of our border more of the business that we've handed over to China? Bolstering the economies in countries nearby will develop interdependent economies in the future. These people (our neighbors) are just trying to survive. If we must find cheaper labor hire our neighboring countries. This could be an automatic fortification of our southern border. Make Mexico great instead of China and then America will be great again. We've sent so much of our technology away to that distant land. We could keep our grip and perpetuate our innovations when we do business next door. I would rather keep our industries here in the U.S. but companies will always seek to maximize profits at the expense of our own citizens. Capitalism does have it's challenges. Cultivate a great economic relationship with Mexico and the Mexican people and share the prosperity that this country worked so hard to achieve in a mutually beneficial way. A way that perpetuates the prosperity we've been blessed with and spill it over to Mexico.

Sir: While Flynn made a big mistake which cost his job, before liberals attack Trump for security lapses, please point out to them (and the pubic) that Jeh Johnson and 3 of his top officials have just been found to have used unsecured email systems, thereby endangering our secrets. Do not stop immediate responses to these attacks by hysterics.
Watch tape of Tucker Carlson last night. The lady (a teacher) who attacked a Trump supporter presented the very meaning of what projection is. She was as close to the many labels (Nazi, fascist, etc.) as I've seen and she is totally unaware that she is projecting that which she supposedly abhors. Please start pounding liberals for what they are doing since they seem incapable of recognizing what hypocrites they are and what anti-free speech supporters they are. They are truly dangerous for this country and their violence need to be firmly and permanently addressed.
Thank you.

You can only win the ban by using the argument that a religion that violates the constitution CANNOT be protected by the constitution. Their religion tells them to kill, punish, behead, blowup, and stone non-believers, and violators of their religious beliefs. Their religion is full of these kinds of atrocities and cruelties. You have to show the evidence of their constitutionally violating beliefs about human-to-human conduct condoned, permitted, and encouraged as duties to the religion.

It is essential to protect American citizens from terrorism, but the order should have a different name like : A ban of refugees from Middle East states at war. And appease them by setting up refugee camps with tents, food and medical. Just change the name to not be a ban, but an action of determent, and directing them to camps where they can go through a screening process before coming to the US...

Thank you for the first two weeks of being the messenger for the American people who voted for you. Praying for you and family. Please don't back down and I am so grateful you keep us informed with the real truth of the news. Fake media is being eliminated because we finally have a President who want's to "Make America Great" again and put us first. May the Lord send his angels to protect you and the cabinet as the team fights it's way to "Making America Great Again! Love you, your family and the cabinet and again Thank You!

My heart is so heavy today with all that our country is facing and all the crazies out there defending and standing up for anyone and everyone EXCEPT America and our leaders. I have no idea how many times I have lifted the USA and our President up in prayer to our Heavenly Father and asked for guidance and protection, just this morning alone, not to mention all during the night as I was awakened and felt God was asking me to pray for you and the USA! As I sit and write this to you, I think of the book of JOB as satin moved across the land seeking those whom he could devour. To me, it seems he is on the rampage again today as badly as back then. Remember how Job had to go through all the trials and tribulations and loose all he had but God replaced all and more, because Job kept the faith. Donald J. Trump and Mike Pence I pray God guides you and keep you and us safe and in His grace and lead us through this storm! Amen Please, Keep the faith and trust God for America needs you as our leader in this time of great need. We are Praying for you without ceasing.

Could we start a movement across America of the common man, going on "only" their local TV, making a statement for all American's to stand together while president Trump tries to pull this great nation out of it's, well, mess, that too many money hungry government people in the past has put us in? I may be wrong but I believe the racial issues in America, today, are caused my the major networks and I also believe it was done on purpose. either way, we cannot lose anything by standing together now. We all, only stand to gain if President Trump is truly what he says he is and he can fight the government and get some things changed.

Who is laughing now? Many tears will fall before these 4 years are up. Mr. Trump will put the squeeze on all who put him in office. It has already started with his trumped up healthcare plan. Since you ignore reality, we will see if you ignore the reality of no healthcare, higher taxes, no credibility and no wall. Guess who has been dooped?
