An Open Letter to President Donald Trump


An Open Letter to President Donald Trump

Dear President Donald Trump
I have admired your actions against abortion and your efforts to surround yourself with pro-life leaders. These actions and efforts are especially worthy of our international applause because, before your presidency, you had no pro-life or conservative history.
I have admired your effort to surround yourself with Franklin Graham and other fine Christian advisers.
I have admired your effort, in spite of your history of non-opposition to the gay agenda, to fulfill the wish of your conservative constituents who understand that the gay agenda is harmful to American families.
Now, let me tell you what in you has especially won my admiration: your speech, during your 2016 campaign, against neocons.
You were courageous to denounce the Iraqi War, begun by Bush, with Hillary Clinton’s approval. Bush hated you for it and he did not vote for you. But your denunciation was very important because in the trail of Bush’s invasion of Iraq there was a genocide of Iraqi Christians. Bush, who protected oil interests in Iraq, did not protect Christian lives. Before the invasion, there was 2,000,000 Iraqi Christians. Now they number less than 400,000. Oil was more important for Bush than Christian blood.
Just as you, Bush was a good man in domestic policy regarding abortion and more or less good regarding sodomy. But just as you denounced, he failed in foreign policy by following the neocon agenda of wars, wars and more wars. As an evangelical Christian, he could have done better, especially by protecting oppressed Christians. But he did not do.
What is the point, conservatives ask today about Bush, of being pro-life and evangelical in America, but being pro-death through perpetual wars in other nations — wars to protect the Saudi Islamic oil at the expense of Christian blood?
American troops should first and foremost protect the U.S. borders. But they are far away often protecting the Saudi dictatorship that is responsible for unparalleled persecution of Christians in the Middle East. Bush and Obama erred by defending the Saudis.
Today your administration is repeating their errors. You are giving priority to the Saudis and their oil, not to Christians and their blood spilled by the Saudis and their fanatical Muslim allies. You made massive sales of U.S. arms to the Saudis, even knowing that they and Obama founded ISIS. These sales have produced thousands of jobs in America — at the cost of thousands of Christian lives slaughtered by Islamic groups backed, funded and armed by the Saudis.
As Obama and Bush, you are empowering Saudi Arabia, the most terrorist nation in the world.
Obama and Bush dislike you because you spoke against their errors. The Saudis were worried about you in 2016 because your speech attacked neocons. Neocons and the Saudis are old partners in wars. And the ideal machine to produce perpetual wars is Islam and its terrorists.
Your speech was a great model, unparalleled in American history. You spoke about protecting U.S. borders and staying away from the Bush’s and Obama’s meddling and errors (which, as far as Christian victims are concerned, are crimes) in the Middle East. You denounced that ISIS, which committed a genocide against Christians in Iraq and Syria, was created by Obama and Hillary Clinton.
When I look at the Middle East map, it is filled of U.S. military bases. These bases were there during Bush, Obama and now you. Many of these bases are in Saudi Arabia, protecting their oil.
When Bush and Obama looked at the Middle East map, they saw the high number of U.S. military bases as excellent opportunities to protect Saudi Arabia, which is the greatest sponsor of Islamic terrorism in the world.
When I look at the map, I see the high number of U.S. military bases as an excellent and unique opportunity to protect defenseless Christians.
How could not America protect Christians who were being slaughtered by ISIS when American bases are so near? Why should oil be more important than innocent blood?
In your first international trip, the first nation you visited was Saudi Arabia. You did exactly what Bush and Obama would have done: you gave your first fruits to the Muslim Saudis. You gave them an honor they do not deserve. Next (in second place), you visited Israel, but you did not recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. You gave exclusivity to Saudi Arabia, not to Israel.
No other nation in the world has the power to protect Israel and recognize Jerusalem as its capital as the United States has. All of this power was given by God not to a pro-abortion, pro-sodomy and neocon America, but to a Protestant Christian America, and he can take it back whenever he wants. This power should always be used to protect defenseless Christians and Israel.
Yet, homosexualist, pro-abortion and neocon barbarians have taken over America and her original Protestant Christian power in such a way that today even the State Department, which runs the U.S. foreign-affair policy, has no acknowledgment of the vital role of Protestant Christianity and its biblical values in the foundation of America. Only a pagan America could have wreaked the foreign-affair havoc done under Bush and Obama.
A nation is busy protecting its own borders. An empire is busy installing and keeping military bases around the world and seeking ways to invade other nations’ borders. Both Bush and Obama were busy running an empire. Who will run the United States as a nation?
Both Bush and Obama could not protect defenseless Christians and they had to protect Islamic Saudis because they were busy running an empire. Who will run the United States as the Christian nation envisioned by its Founders?
Pro-life Bush, who does not like you, protected the Saudi oil at the expense of Christian blood. He was inconsistent, because he was pro-life in his domestic policy, but pro-death, especially the death of Christians, in his foreign policy. To be pro-Saudi is always to be pro-death of Christians. Bush is a Protestant Christian, but he forgot Christianity and its values in his foreign policy in the Middle East.
Bush never fulfilled his conservative promise to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and he forced Israel to get involved in his nasty neocon foreign policy that protected the Saudi oil interests at the expense of Christian blood.
By behaving this way, Bush did not respect the Protestant Christian foundation of America. I publicly supported Bush for his pro-life domestic policy, even though I am distressed, as you were in 2016, over his pro-death foreign policy. Left-wing radicals attacked me because I supported pro-life Bush.
Pro-abortion Obama, who also does not like you, protected the Saudi oil at the expense of Christian blood. He was consistent, because he was pro-abortion (pro-death) in his domestic policy and equally pro-death, especially the death of Christians, in his foreign policy. To be pro-Saudi is always to be pro-death of Christians.
Obama never fulfilled his left-wing promise to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and he forced Israel to get involved in his nasty neocon foreign policy that protected the Saudi oil interests at the expense of Christian blood.
By behaving this way, Obama did not also respect the Protestant Christian foundation of America. I never supported Obama because I was distressed, as you were in 2016, over his pro-death domestic policy and foreign policy. Left-wing radicals attacked me because I attacked pro-abortion Obama.
Anyway, both Bush and Obama disliked you over your speech against a neocon, warmongering, pro-death foreign policy.
Why should you let your administration now follow them and their errors — indeed, foreign-affair crimes?
I liked and I like your 2016 speech.
Remember: who voted for you to be president was not neocons or liberals or progressives. Who voted for you were evangelicals, who believed in your anti-neocon speech.
Where is the 2016 Trump who scared neocons and Muslims?
Please, do not abandon your 2016 speech. Have a partnership with Russia against Islamic terrorism. This was your speech. Stick to it.
Please, do not let the U.S. foreign policy continue its tradition of forcing Israel to get involved in the nasty neocon agenda to protect the Saudi oil interests at the expense of Christian blood.
Please, recognize the whole, undivided Jerusalem as the historical capital of Israel and recognize Israeli borders just as recognized in the Bible. Both Bush and Obama were under instructions from the U.S. Congress to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, but they never did it. Surpass them.
Please, condemn Saudi Arabia for its massive sponsorship of Islamic terrorism, including ISIS. Your speech was to ban Islamic nations sponsoring terrorism. No other nation deserves more the number one position in your ban list than Saudi Arabia does.
Please, relocate to the U.S. borders the American military bases around the world. Your speech pointed out defense of U.S. borders. In no other place the U.S. military is more necessary than in the U.S. borders.
Please, protect Christians minorities who have been directly endangered by Bush’s and Obama’s unnecessary military invasions — including in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Libya. The most necessary military invasion is in the Saudi Arabia.
Please, fulfill your 2016 vision and fight neocons, whose warmongering left-wing and right-wing militants are a real threat to the America envisioned by George Washington and other Protestant Founders. Drain the swamp. Expel them from your administration.
If you cannot undo the massive foreign-affair crimes of Bush and Obama against Christians persecuted by Muslims, at least facilitate their immigration to America just as Obama and Bush facilitated the immigration of Muslims to America.
If you cannot have a conservative foreign affair policy because neocons are threatening to destroy your life or presidency to keep their warmongering machine advancing, speak out. Evangelicals who elected you can help you, through prayer and action. Prayer has much power.
My Open Letter is based in the hopes you gave in your 2016 speech. It is also based on the Christian intent of America’s Protestant Founders.
May Jesus Christ, through his Holy Spirit, guide you in the whole truth.
Sincerely,
Signed: Julio Severo, a Brazilian conservative evangelical writer
