From Renee Potenza (of Austin, TX)
“Get Off the Trump Train and Admit Your Mistake”
To those friends and family members who voted for Donald J. Trump:
Perhaps you are a life-long Republican. Maybe you have deeply held beliefs about those values for which the Republican Party used to stand. Maybe you got on the Trump train early on, and your enthusiasm in being part of a popular group carried you along.
I ask you now: Please get off the Trump train. He’s not worthy of your trust.
Disengage your identity as a follower of the Donald, and think critically, questioning everything. Utter those three little words, which are the hallmarks of honest, healthy communication: “I was wrong.”
