The stakes this November are too high. We cannot allow Donald Trump anywhere near the White House.
Nearly eight years ago we made history by electing Barack Obama our forty-fourth president, the first African-American president to ever hold the job. He has been a uniter in times of deep division, a pillar of strength in times of great grief – a leader who understood the gravity of his words and issued them with the utmost care and thought. There have been a number of moments over the course of his presidency that I looked to him to express what I could not: a deep optimism about America and what it means to be an American. In a word, hope.
Donald Trump does not share that optimism about our country or its people – in fact, his campaign slogan is “Make America Great Again”. We all know what those words mean – let’s take America backwards. Let’s take America back to a time when it was just fine to say whatever dangerous, reckless, bigoted thoughts came to mind instead of being “politically correct”. Well I’m not going to be politically correct about this what’s at stake here: the character of our country.
