Dear Donald,

You have to stop and take a minute before sending off tweets. I understand that these are just your off the cuff thoughts, but you aren’t doing yourself any favors by not taking a minute to really think about what you’re saying. You really can have a tendency to come off as ignorant and rash.

“President Andrew Jackson, who died 16 years before the Civil War started, saw it coming and was angry. Would never have let it happen!” @realDonaldTrump 5:55PM – 1 May 2017

“The reason for the plan negotiated between the Republicans and Democrats is that we need 60 votes in the Senate which are not there! We….” @realDonaldTrump 6:01AM – 2 May 2017

“either elect more Republican Senators in 2018 or change the rules now to 51%. Our country needs a good “shutdown” in September to fix mess!”

Now for the Andrew Jackson tweet, I just can’t get into that. That’s a rabbit hole I just won’t even try to go down. I wouldn’t even know where to begin with that.

Addressing the government shutdown on the other hand, while I’m sure this is probably largely due to the fact that you are frustrated with the fact that your bills are not passing in Congress. Although throwing out the baby out with the bathwater seems a bit extreme don’t you think?

As President of the United States, I really wish you’d take on a more mature, reasonable adult position when you do things. I don’t know if you realize it, but a lot of what you do sounds like huffing and puffing and playing the blame game on why things are screwed. You make these threats, and it just sounds like you are trying to bully people into doing things your way.

These setbacks happen because we are collectively telling you that this is not we want. We have a democracy here, not a dictatorship.
