Obama had 8 years to make America great. Now let’s give Trump a chance

The people have spoken! Donald Trump was elected because Americans had become discouraged and disillusioned with the action, or lack of, taken by both parties in governing our nation. We the people see politicians who are only looking out for their own interests. They have failed to, in JFK’s words, “ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

I see Mr. Trump as a man who has come from neither side of the political aisle, but more as a “rebel with a cause.” He is not afraid of maintaining his status in government because he has had none. To me, he has shown a desire to work for the people; to make a better life for all.

Mr. Obama had eight years to make America greater; now let’s give Mr. Trump a go at it.
