My advice for Hillary Clinton for 2020

Even 100 days after President Trump’s inauguration, I find myself telling Liberals, Democrats, and the rest of the self-entitled snowflakes that it is time to accept that Donald Trump is President. There are riots, looting, even violent thugs beating up people just because they support Trump. This is supposed to be America, where EVERYONE has freedom of speech to express their views under the 1st Amendment. Sadly, the so-called Progressives don’t know how to take a loss. And this is because their leader, you, Madame Secretary, can’t take a loss either.

During the general election debate, you held Donald Trump accountable by demanding  that he agree to accept the results of the election if he lost. He said that he would, but what about you? You continue to blame everyone but yourself, from Russia to WikiLeaks to Julian Assange all the way to FBI Director James Comey. But you have yet to tell your people that it was YOU who lost. If you want respect from all Americans, you need to earn it by saying to your people. “I lost the election. Let’s work together to make America better.” Tell them to stop all the things that can cause harm to others. Petitioning the government for redress of grievances (another 1st Amendment right) is one thing. But encouraging violent “Resistance” is as bad as mutiny and should be considered sedition. That is not how America works and you know it.

Let’s look at what went wrong in your campaign. Julian Assange didn’t make you focus your campaign on Donald Trump, not campaign on economic issues, as your husband advised you to do. Vladimir Putin didn’t force you to campaign in Arizona, not in critical Midwestern states that hadn’t gone Republican since Reagan. James Comey didn’t prohibit you from visiting Wisconsin…even once!

Besides having a better ground campaign, stop taking advantage of minorities for votes. Actually be there for them when you are not in office. Agree with Republicans that there should be a better way to ensure that only those who are eligible are voting. Take responsibility for your mistakes, such as Benghazi, the 30,000 emails that could have put a nation at risk, indeed, ANY mistake that is made public. Own up to these mistakes because people know that you are a human being who makes mistakes just like anyone else. A true leader takes accountability and then fixes what is broken.

I hope you take all of this into consideration because I believe that we are all in this together. Republicans, Democrats, Liberals, Conservatives, etc. No matter what our party or affiliation, if any, we should remember that we are all Americans first. Try to unite the country and lead properly and show that a leader can fix things and come out strong even after making mistakes
