A Message to Trump Supporters

22/01/17

I did not vote for Trump, but I do get how many people have been thrown on the trash heap by the political elite. I share your frustration and desire for change. I just happen to think the change you voted for will not deliver the change you (and I) want.

I have a challenge for you, and would happily listen to any challenge you have for me.

My belief is you will find life very much harder in four years than now. My belief is you will be told by your leaders that your deepening hardships are caused by others.

My challenge for you is to judge the people you have democratically elected by what they deliver. They have promised you jobs, fairness for people left behind by global trading and an end to corrupt leaders who feather their own nests. If they can’t deliver in four years, they are probably never going to deliver what they promised.
