Target: President-Elect Donald Trump
Goal: Demand Donald Trump keep his promise to “make America great again.”
Donald Trump has officially won the election, much to the dismay of many working-class citizens and those who will be badly impacted by his bias towards special interests and billionaires. In addition to continuing the fight against his agenda, we must demand he keep the many promises he made to the people who believed in him.
There are people who voted for Trump because he said he would change the job market to provide greater employment opportunities, and because they feel his presidency would benefit the entire country rather than just certain parts of it. Unfortunately, it is becoming clear he does not even intend to try to keep those promises. This is the same man who gave a generous tax cut to a wealthy technology company despite his assertion that he would demand they pay their taxes. This is a man who favors the rich over the working class, as seen in his cabinet choices, and overall has no clue how to run a country.
Donald Trump is the last person we want in charge of this country for the next four years, but if there is nothing we can do to keep him out of the White House we can do the next best things in both fighting his agenda and demanding he make an effort. Sign this petition to demand Donald Trump clean up his act.
Dear President-Elect Trump,
You made many campaign promises that you are not keeping. You are favoring special interest groups above the working class, many of whom voted for you because they believed you would make things better for them, especially regarding employment opportunities. These people are going to be hurt and disappointed when they discover you lied to them.
Your cabinet consists of billionaires who are against women’s rights, LGBT+ rights, and environmental concerns. They support big oil companies, which damage the environment. These choices are not the actions of a man who wishes to “make America great again.” In addition, you have been accused of treason due to proof of the Russians meddling in the election results in order to secure your victory, and should you be convicted and arrested, your running mate Mike Pence will carry out your selfish agenda.
Regardless of the outcome of the investigation, you will be our president for the next four years. On behalf of those who voted for you because they truly believed in you, we demand you behave the way a president should. Think of the needs of the everyday citizens, not just the billionaires. Protect people’s rights. You are being given one chance to clean up your act and do the right thing. Do not make those who believed in you regret their votes, and should you be convicted and impeached, ensure that your running mate will do the same.
[Your Name Here]
