In Response to Donald Trump setting up his New Jersey Headquarters in Parsippany

Donald Trump is setting up his campaign office in Parsippany in an effort to bring his message of hatred, discrimination, and belligerence to Morris County. Voters in Morris County are some of the most well educated and informed people in the nation. They realize that Trump is not a viable candidate for President of the United States because of his irrational behavior.

Trump is wasting his time and money by opening a campaign office in Parsippany. There is no way that he will earn the trust of the majority of New Jersey voters. If Trump really wanted to earn their trust, he would take back his pledge to deport undocumented immigrants, he would take back his pledge to prohibit Muslims from entering the country, and he would publicly share his tax returns. It is impossible to take Trump seriously because of all of the dumb mistakes that he has made.

I think people really want to believe him when he says he will make America great again. They want to believe him when he says he will create jobs, negotiate better foreign trade terms, and destroy ISIS. The voters of Morris County want America to progress but they can see that the likelihood of Trump delivering these promises is miniscule.

I personally believe that Trump’s campaign presence in Parsippany is a symbol of divisiveness and exclusion that the majority of voters of Morris County oppose. The man is a loose cannon and if elected would present an enormous danger to the stability of the United States and the world. It is saddening to see some vulnerable people fall for the illusion that Trump is going to deliver on those empty promises.

When they support a hateful man like Trump their children subliminally get the message that hatred and discrimination is acceptable. I pray that Trump closes the Parsippany office just as quickly as he closed the Edison one. I also pray that he never steps foot in the White House for the safety and security of our future generations.

Finally I will absolutely pray for anyone who has fallen victim to Trump’s artificial promises. I know that the voters of Morris County will ultimately conclude that the risk of voting for Trump is just too high and we have too much to lose.
