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?

I think it’s disgraceful of Donald Trump, trying to protect American citizens from Islamic terrorists by introducing a temporary ban on Muslims entering the USA. He should let them all in and when another outrage occurs, find out if any of the recent arrivals are responsible. That worked well in respect of the Twin Towers, didn’t it!
I keep hearing that many of the attacks are by ‘Home Grown Terrorists’, well that’s OK then! I wonder how our children and grandchildren will feel in a few years when they hear the same story. Will they blame today’s Politicians? They should.
• I would be interested to know the religion of these ‘Home Grown Terrorists’. Is it Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Judaism or even Islam? I would also be interested to know how many other religions have Clerics that advocate terrorism.

• We all know that the majority of Muslims are good people and that it is only a small minority that are actual terrorists, but when this small minority are supported by a large minority, which is the case, then that is a cause for great concern!

• I was listening to an interview with a taxi driver in New York who said “I’m a Muslim and proud to be one, but I came to the USA because Muslims don’t know how to run a country, so I don’t wish for this country to become one’’.

• No, you people keep on protesting, you are unlikely to personally be a victim of a terrorist attack, so what does it matter if someone else is?

So, Roy... you would prefer to have an event first (terrorist attack) in which many Americans will perish, before you decide to protect the country?
Let me ask you, if you have children, I am sure you would want to protect them from any harm, would you not do everything as possible to avoid exposing them a possible threat knowing where it may be coming from?
Remember, this ban is for radicals, those who believe that killing Christians, destroying prosperous countries, and die professing salvation through their belief.
Yes there are good people everywhere in the world who deserve to live at peace, but there are those who sick self gratification by harming others, who infiltrate through the cracks as good people with a mission to kill.
This ban is not for the good people, but for the time been we have to be very careful and smart as to how we will handle the terrorist threat... nobody looks after our own interest but us the Americans who love our country and are building our future... don't you get it?

Today I had an experience at our local Hospital that has sickened me. The Emergency Room Nurses and Doctors are great....They went beyond the call of duty to save my Husband's life and death situation. My devastation lies in the Social Worker and Representative from a local Physical Therapy Center. My Husband and I were told a Loma Linda Veterans Representative was in meeting with Staff to work out a transfer to the Veterans Hospital. A short while later the Social Worker and Rep from the local Physical Therapy Center rudely ran over the ER doctor saying, "A transfer was not going to happen and my husband needed to go back to the Physical Therapy Center....pressuring for an agreement on the spot...After a deliberation of our situation with my husband being released and needing care, we reluctantly consented as our options were apparently none, we knew this was not going to be adaquate care, Oxygen was need in form of a face mask but, only nose hoses were used at the Physical Therapy.. Another issue arose, we were informed we needed to pay $100 cash for a non-emergency transport back to the Physical Therapy Center After return to Physical Therapy, the bed my husband left had been since occupied...a change of rooms was needed which required previous occupants personal items removed, after this Veteran was relocated to the room, still short of breath with insufficient oxygen. After 6 hours of struggling with breathing problems ambulance transported him back to the hospital..What is wrong with our medical system? A VA hospital should of been available without the pain and suffering. Worst of all is, Now What Can I Do to Insure My Vietnam Veteran is treated properly? I hear all the improvements to be made but, we are slipping thru the system. Mr. Trump can you help ? Thank You..I am desperate for answers! Doctors and Nurses are compassionate and provide good care BUT...they cannot control a medical facility.

Show your tax returns. Raise the COL percent for seniors and then leave Medicare alone.

The wall needs to be built. Most of the material could come from the second largest open pit mine in the United States: The Rio Tinto Borax mine near Boron CA. The over-burden could be loaded on long trains and hauled down near the border.

It would not take too long and the cost could be low.
