DEAR AUSTRALIAPage 1 of 1    
Dear Australia,

I am an American, like many, I voted for Hillary. I am ashamed of Trump & his cronies. Ashamed is the wrong word, I cannot think of one to describe the intensity,

Please please please do not judge all Americans based on this heinous man/administration. I do not know how this happened.

Please please please pray for us & the rest of the world.

Thank you for all of your help & wonderful-ness over the years.

Signed,

Beginning to be Oppressed in the U.S.

I will admit I know little of Australia, but I do know how many came over after being ejected from England & Ireland & of the Maori Culture etc. So I am sure there is oppression in your history, every nation has experienced it I guess. I believe in HONOR, & if an agreement was made by our previous administration, Trump should HONOR it. All he seems to HONOR is his own EGO & LIES. :0(

I cannot speak for all, but I am certain MANY feel the same as myself. My apologies to your Prime Minister & country. You deserve respect, not derision.

Having worked for the same company for almost eighteen years. I have
been fortunate to have health insurance.I never gave any attention to this
mandatory healthcare.Yesterday having my taxes down I was appalled to
hear that people are being fined up to a thousands dollars a year for not
having it.Their not taking that money and putting it towards that persons
health care.

The previous administration thought this was a good Idea?I am sorry
Hillary didn't win.The previous administrations have had us on the same road
for too long.It was time for a change.I don't think he's the right person to take
us there but I am willing to give him a chance because he won.

Wilkes I appreciate your comments and I hope this thread stays on topic and doesn't descend into a Trump supporters vs non supporters thread.

I was at lunch today with several work colleagues and the subject of Trump came up. I mentioned this thread and was not really surprised to hear others talk of receiving similar apologies from their American friends/acquaintances.

It *is* a shock to suddenly be treated with such blunt disrespect.

Understand how appalled at Trump's behavior most Americans are. To all the nations he has insulted. And how very grateful we are for the support we've seen, It truly is a "GLOBAL world"!

DEAR AUSTRALIA

It wouldn't be nearly so dear if it wasn't for capital flight out of China.

I am ashamed of Trump & his cronies. Ashamed is the wrong word, I cannot think of one to describe the intensity,

If you can express the intensity of the feeling in W/m2 it would help us avoid any complications arising from the use of non-SI units.

I will admit I know little of Australia, but I do know how many came over after being ejected from England & Ireland & of the Maori Culture etc.

Maoris come from kiwiland. Which used to be part of Australia, but isn't anymore. And the Maori's sneaked into mainland Australia when no-one was looking anyway. But they tend not to get on so well with the Australian Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders. Basically you're better off ignoring culture and playing pokies instead.

I believe in HONOR, & if an agreement was made by our previous administration, Trump should HONOR it.

This particular agreement was rushed through within days of the the election by Obama and Turnbull for political reasons. Trump is clearly justified in looking to undo it, also for political reasons.

All he seems to HONOR is his own EGO & LIES. :0(

Why are you listing all of the qualities he needs to be a successful politician? At first I thought you were not in favour of his being executive-in-chief.

I cannot speak for all, but I am certain MANY feel the same as myself.

Many? How many? Twenty? Two hundred million? Does the number matter? Does it make you feel more sincere or something? Maybe if a majority feels something it is a democratically acceptable feeling and therefore it is good?

My apologies to your Prime Minister & country.

Why would you apologise for someone else's rudeness? He is responsible for his own actions. You are only responsible for your own actions. He is not you. We are not Malcolm Turnbull. Countries are abstract concepts, incapable of giving and taking offense.

You deserve respect, not derision.

We deserve respect and derision in accordance with our actions. We are humans who exhibit the whole the spectrum of behaviours of this species of ours.

It *is* a shock to suddenly be treated with such blunt disrespect.

Even if I was treated with such blunt disrespect, which I wasn't, I wouldn't be surprised. Which I'm not.

It truly is a "GLOBAL world"!

Mean, as in lacking in kindness? Well sure, relative to kinder things. In an absolute sense? Depends on your perspective.

Apologising for rude elites, seeking validation or support for a feeling through its commonality, and expressing shock at a perceived slight to a local media personality are symptoms of confused identity and delineation of responsibility.

If left untended it could have led to acute nationalism, which can only be treated by lobotomy. Therefore saying some things that may seem a bit mean, but which could prevent such a horrible outcome, would evidently be the lesser of two evils.

Obviously you dont know hillery


heres some of Trumps achievements so far

This is a running list of the promises President Trump made on the campaign trail, and has kept in his First 100 Days in office. Barely any of them have been reported on because of this bullshit Russia conspiracy theory that is swallowing the MSM. He has literally "Done more in 97 days than Obama did in 8 years." This is not only a running list of promises he has kept so far, but also things he has done that weren't even promised on the campaign trail. MAGA. (I will be updating this as much as I can, whenever a new initiative comes to light)

PROMISES MADE AND KEPT SO FAR:

Campaign Promise 1: To replace Antonin Scalia with a like-minded justice from a list of 20
Trump replaced Antonin Scalia with Neil Gorsuch, an incredibly qualified and Constitution-abiding justice

Campaign Promise 2: To suspend immigration from terror-prone countries
Trump has attempted to enact a Travel Ban that is 100% CONSTITUTIONAL AND is made from the seven (six, now) "countries of concern" outlined by the Obama Administration. This has been blocked by an extremely liberal Hawaiian judge who was appointed by Obama. (The blocking of this travel ban might piss me off more than anything that has happened during his presidency, because judges should be blind to politics, but that is proving to be false.) Hopefully this will go to the Supreme Court and be overturned quickly.

Campaign Promise 3: To defund and crack down on sanctuary cities
Trump has implemented a YUGE crackdown on sanctuary cities, threatening to defund them

Campaign Promise 4: To revive the Keystone Pipeline and Dakota Access Pipeline
The revival of the Dakota and Keystone XL Pipelines creating American jobs

Campaign Promise 5: To pull the US out of the TPP, an Obama-era trade deal detrimental to the US
Trump pulled us out of the TPP which would have been absolutely disastrous for the US

Campaign Promise 6: DONALD TRUMP LOVES WOMEN AND WANTS TO HELP WOMEN!
Trump has signed an Executive Order promoting women in STEM jobs (careers real feminists strive for, not "dance therapy" feminists)
Trump has Launched a Council empowering female leaders and female entrepreneurs

Campaign Promise 7: To renegotiate, or pull out of Bill Clinton's terrible trade deal, NAFTA
Trump met with Justin Trudeau (what a joke) to discuss the tweaking of NAFTA to benefit the US more, after he threatens to leave it

Campaign Promise 8: To undo ridiculous Obama-era federal agency regulations
Trump ordered a two-for-one repeal for all new regulations enacted by federal agencies

Campaign Promise 9: To rollback Obama-era regulations on small businesses
Trump has rolled back ridiculous Obama-era regulations that have made it nearly impossible for small businesses to hire employees
Trump has already saved taxpayers $86 Billion by cutting regulations

Campaign Promise 10: To help America's inner-cities deeply in need of rebuilding
Trump has signed an Executive Order to give major funding to "Historically Black Colleges and Universities," helping out inner-cities immensely

Campaign Promise 11: To protect our policemen, the true everyday heroes
Trump signed an Executive Order protecting our police

Campaign Promise 12: To crackdown on illegal immigration and to BUILD A WALL
Trump has implemented a YUGE crackdown on illegal immigration and he has started the WALL initiative

Campaign Promise 13: To bolster our depleted military
Trump has increased our military budget because we don't want to use our military, but want to be prepared to use it

Campaign Promise 14: To enact a five year lobbying ban on government Officials after they leave office
Trump has placed a five year and lifetime lobbying ban on government officials for when they leave office

Campaign Promise 15: To crackdown on drug cartels and illegal drugs crossing the border
Trump signed an Executive Order cracking down on drug cartels

Campaign Promise 16: To revitalize the dying coal industry in the US
Trump has enacted Joint Resolution 38 putting thousands of coal miners back to work

Campaign Promise 17: To create American JOBS and bring companies back to America
- Trump negotiated a deal with Carrier promising to bring manufacturing and jobs back to the US.
- Trump has met with CEOs from huge companies to work on bringing jobs back to America
- There was an increase of 298,000 jobs in February alone (liberals will say that counts in Obama's fiscal year, but we know the truth)
- Trump met with Intel CEO who promised $7 Billion investment and over 3,000 high paying (not "shovel ready" bullshit jobs) in America
- Trump met with the CEO of Softbank who has promised 50,000 more American jobs and has already fulfilled 3,000 of those jobs
- Kroger has promised over 10,000 new jobs in the era of Trump
- The month of March yielded 263,000 new jobs, which passes the month's estimated 185,000 Big League

Campaign Promise 18: Pushing NATO allies to pay their fair share or face the reality of the US possibly leaving
Trump has put major pressure on the members of NATO to pay their fair and equal share because there are only a handful of countries in NATO who currently pay as much as agreed upon

Campaign Promise 19: To make America energy independent, relieving us from our dependence on foreign entities, such as OPEC
Trump has taken major steps towards America's energy independence

Campaign Promise 20: To enact a hiring freeze on government employees to help stop corruption
Trump enacted a hiring freeze to all federal employees, cutting down on the over-bloated bureaucracy

Campaign Promise 21: Trump could be the president that takes us to Mars!
Trump signed a Bill allowing NASA funding, including an exploration to Mars

Campaign Promise 22: To undo many of Obama's unconstitutional Executive Orders
Rescinding (one of) Obama's incredibly unconstitutional actions regarding transgender bathrooms in schools

Campaign Promise 23: The repeal and replacement of Obamacare.
The recent GOP fallout of AHCA Plan was no fault of Trump's. The blame solely belongs to Speaker Ryan. He created a XXXX bill and couldn't even capitalize to get enough votes. Obamacare will crash in 2017 when individual mandates kick in and Democrats will be to blame. That is when Trump will truly work to Repeal and Replace it with a plan he promised us.

Trump got rid of the idiotic penalty in Obamacare that fines you if you choose not to participate in the program

Campaign Promise 24: To "Bomb the XXXX out of ISIS"
A few days ago, Trump dropped the YUGE MOAB on a group of ISIS militants, killing 90+ terrorists and causing damage to underground tunnels and technology

He called for a drone strike in Afghanistan killing Qari Yasin, a Pakistani Al-Qaeda leader

Campaign Promise 25: To not take a salary as President

He donated his first quarterly salary to the National Park Service

Campaign Promise 26: To reform the VA and make it easier for Vets to get more healthcare opportunities

He signed A Bill allowing veterans to seek healthcare outside of the broken VA system

Trump has created the Accountability Office at the VA, making it incredibly easy to oust incompetent VA employees

Campaign Promise 27: To create a much needed tax reform

Trump has laid out an extremely concise, yet effective Tax Reform Plan to lower taxes for Americans and end things like inheritance tax, and to cut corporate tax rates down to 15%

Campaign Promise 28 (Scroll down to see "School Choice and Education Act"): To fix our country's incredibly broken education system

Trump has signed an Executive Order giving the power of our country's education back to state and local authorities

ACTIONS NOT PROMISED ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL, BUT HAVE BEEN PUT IN EFFECT:
(Even though it was Mike Pence) The defunding of clinics that perform abortions. Because no matter whether you are pro-choice/pro-life, the government should not be funding abortions. (Also, if people bring up the Hyde Amendment which is supposed to not let any federal funding go towards abortions, LET THEM KNOW that US taxpayers pay for about 24% of abortions despite of that "amendment")

Huge spikes in the NASDAQ average index and the DOW average index starting November 8th. (This will count for Obama unfortunately, but we know where the real credit belongs.)

He has placed sanctions on Iran after they tested ballistic missiles

He has met with/talked to over 68 foreign leaders

He negotiated down the Price of the new Air Force One one billion dollars in a meeting that lasted just one hour

He issued major cuts to the costs of the F-35 saving billions

He has opened the eyes of the American public to just how unbelievably corrupt (pretty believable to most) the Obama Administration was.

After spending 3 years in a prison in Egypt, and absolutely no help from President Obama, humanitarian and US citizen Aya Hijazi has safely returned home and has given all credit to President Trump
