Dear Editor:

Our government is embarking in an unprecedented new direction. It is trying to do something for the American citizens.

The outgoing Democratic administration exhausted our patience with its lies and scheming and lack of presidential leadership.

The “good-ole-boy” deals by lobbyists and CEOs of different state departments are not the way our government should be run. Instead of “you scratch my back I’ll scratch yours” agreements that have been going on, now we can expect this new administration with President Trump to bring us back to the leadership standard we expect for the United States to where our motto “In God We Trust” means something again.

We need to give this administration our prayers and some time to do what Trump said he would do and is already doing. Stop all the riots and protests and have a little patience and a lot of trust in God.
