Trump has also made it clear that he has no plans to touch the federal law in regards to same-sex marriage. And oh yea, his Great Wall around Mexico, just may also include a lot of fencing.
And, if you were worried about health care, you should be pleased to know that President-elect Trump and countless other Republicans agree with some of the core issues of Obamacare, which include protecting pre-existing condition clauses as well as continuing to allow kids to be included in their parents health insurance up to 26 years old.
My faith in God keeps me confident that the Democrat in Trump will help continue to bring him to the center.
Let's not throw around terms like "life-threatening" so lightly. It's difficult for me to understand how voters can perceive America's problems as severe as "life-threatening." Through my travels and work as UN Ambassador for Sport and Peace, I understand "life-threatening." The UN has estimated that over 1 billion people across the world live in extreme poverty, which means not having access to basic needs like food, water and shelter. This also means people living off less than $2 a day. It's not shocking to learn that none of these 1 billion lives within the borders of the United States. Kids are fleeing parts of the Middle East by the thousands and 90 minutes from our borders, 1.4 million hurricane victims are still suffering in Haiti with limited access to clean water and food. Young girls and women in third-world countries are being exploited all over the world, including the U.S. These underserved, voiceless populations really need our protest.
Peaceful protest have been the pillars of our democracy from the beginning. It took years of advocating and heartache for Jackie Robinson to break into "America's pastime," baseball, and even longer lobbying for Art Shell to become the NFL's first African-American head coach. But these protest were a direct response to actual injustices, not a protest of fear of something that has not happened.
Like the great Oprah Winfrey just said, "Let's all take a deep breath."
We should all be respected for our opinions. If my perspective offends anyone, my suggestion would be to pick up your pens and start writing.
