Letter To President Trump
Washington, DC 20500
Dear Mr. President,
As the leaders of one of the countrys great institutions of higher education and research, we are writing to assert in the strongest possible terms the importance to the United States of continuing to welcome immigrants and the talent and energy that they bring to this country. The history of scientific and technological advance that undergirds all of the economic growth the country has witnessed for decades, as well as the position of the country as the greatest magnet for talented people from around the world, has depended upon this welcoming stance. A failure to maintain this position will ultimately weaken the nations world-leading higher education institutions, diminish the innovation energy in the country, slow the pace of technology development, and ultimately weaken the nation.
We understand that the motivation for recent actions concerning immigration has been a concern for national security and the threat of terrorism. We take these concerns very seriously and appreciate the need to address them. But we strongly urge that the methods of doing so be examined and thought through carefully, so that the many people who can add so much to the country through immigration have the opportunity to do so, and those who are doing so already are treated with the respect and dignity they deserve. It is only this way that our values and highest aspirations can be fulfilled.
Trump To Media: You Hate That I Can Get Theunfiltered Message Out
As the furor over President Trumps Monday tweets continued into Tuesday, the president tweeted a message to the mainstream media on Tuesday morning:
The FAKE MSM is working so hard trying to get me not to use Social Media. They hate that I can get the honest and unfiltered message out.
On Monday, President Trump tweeted that he is calling his travel ban what it is, a TRAVEL BAN, even though his aides have insisted it is not a travel ban.
Trump also criticized his own Justice Department for not sticking with the original travel ban, producing instead a watered down, politically correct version, which is now heading to the Supreme Court.
He criticized the courts as slow and political, and he said his DOJ should ask for an expedited hearing.
On Tuesday, some of the cable news discussion centered on whether the president had undercut his legal argument for the travel ban by tweeting about it.
Trump also tweeted Tuesday morning: Sorry folks, but if I would have relied on the Fake News of CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, washpost or nytimes, I would have had ZERO chance winning WH.
In two other tweets on Tuesday, President Trump wrote: Big meeting today with Republican leadership concerning Tax Cuts and Healthcare. We are all pushing hard must get it right!
Saudi Arabia accused Qatar of supporting ISIS and al-Qaeda terrorists and the Muslim Brotherhood, backing Shiite Houthi militia in Yemen, and financing anti-government terrorism in Bahrain.
Trump Celebrates Labor Day With Bizarre All
On Saturday morning, those on the mailing list for Trumps Save America PAC were treated to a cryptic all-caps message from the ex-occupant of the White House that President Joe Biden now inhabits:
September 4, 2021
Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America
FIX 2020 FIRST!
The message doesnt clarify what, exactly, should be fixed about a notoriously hated year, or who should do the fixing, or what should be set aside while the fixing is done.
The message didnt have quite the reach that a Trump tweet would have had, but Right Side Broadcasting did tweet a screenshot of the message
Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America
Those who have followed Trumps actions since he lost reelection to Joe Biden, incited a violent insurrection, and spent months convinced he would be reinstated to the presidency in August can likely guess that the fix Trump is looking for is of the election that he lost.

What Are The Details
The feed is a running list of undated statements from the former president, with the most recent attacking House Republican Conference Chairwoman Rep. Liz Cheney who continues to criticize Trump over the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol.
“Heartwarming to read new polls on big-shot warmonger Liz Cheney of the great State of Wyoming,” Trump wrote. “She is so low that her only chance would be if vast numbers of people run against her which, hopefully, won’t happen. They never liked her much, but I say she’ll never run in a Wyoming election again!”
Visitors to the page are unable to comment on the posts, but there are options for sharing the messages to Facebook or Twitter. However, Twitter did not allow the content to be shared when TheBlaze attempted to do so. Facebook did allow the posts to appear on its site.
There are also buttons where users can contribute money, and to sign up to be notified whenever Trump posts a new message.
According to The Washington Examiner, “The technology for the platform appears to come from Campaign Nucleus, a ‘digital ecosystem made for efficiently managing political campaigns and organizations’ that was initially developed by former campaign manager Brad Parscale.”
According to The Washington Post:
Donald Trump Offering Personalized Messages On Post
Former President Donald Trump has a large and fiercely loyal following of supporters, and now he’s given them a way to request a personalized message.
Trump’s post-presidential website has a section where supporters can request a message from the ex-president and former first lady Melania Trump for a “special occasion.”
Requesting a message from the Trumps is fairly easy and can be submitted electronically directly from his website. The form asks about the occasion, information on the recipient and requestor and any additional details the former president should know.
Receiving a message from Trump isn’t guaranteed, though, and requires planning because it can take up to six weeks to get a greeting. The office won’t provide status updates, either, and advises people to not resubmit a request because a duplicate request will supersede the original submission and delay processing.
Record high numbers of people turned out in last November’s election, and although he lost to Joe Biden, Trump received the most votes of any Republican presidential candidate in history. He hasn’t ruled out making another bid for the presidency in 2024, and a majority of his supporters are willing to back him as the Republican nominee.

This tragedy should have never taken place
Thank you God for President Trump! He continues to be a blessing to this country and its people. God bless the troops and the first responders who are ever vigilant in protecting our country. Comfort the families, loved ones, and this generation of military who support them. Please infill the people who are suffering with your Holy Spirit that they know those who were lost are in peace in your presence.
Man, it just got dusty in here fast!
THAT IS THE REAL PRESIDENT! UNTIL HE IS RESTORED TO HIS RIGHTFUL POSITION AS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, WE HAVE NO PRESIDENT!
i live in Florida we got it right
FL NEEDS a forensic AuditALL states need a forensic auditthe RULE should be election followed by an independent audit EVERY time
Yes, because just like the whack-a-mole game, this cheating software is embedded to be used on the fly in EVERY state! Florida barely escaped it their last go round. The Miami Cubans tripped up their pre-set algorithms in 2016.
Cheating software is a very delicate balance. They cant use the exact same algorithms in every precinct, in every state all at once, or their cheating would be too evident.
40 plus years in Congress makes one useless.
Its on Joe to prove that he got 81million votes not on you to prove he didnt.
Trump Leaves Parting Oval Office Letter For Biden
The Trump White House did not divulge the contents of what Trump left for Biden to read, but the new president said it was generous.
01/20/2021 05:28 PM EST
After four years of shattering precedent inside the White House, President Donald Trump took part in one final presidential tradition on his way out of office Wednesday: leaving a letter for his successor inside the Oval Office.
Trump spokesperson Judd Deere confirmed Wednesday that the president had written a letter to President-elect Joe Biden and left it for him in the Oval Office’s Resolute Desk. The Trump White House did not divulge the contents of what Trump left for Biden to read.
Speaking to reporters from the Oval Office for the first time as president on Wednesday evening, Biden said he, too, would keep the note under wraps until he had a moment to connect with Trump.
The president wrote a very generous letter, Biden said. Because it was private, I will not talk about it until I talk to him, but it was generous.
Trump has forsaken other symbolic aspects of the transfer of power between presidents including skipping Bidens inauguration on Wednesday and instead heading to his private club in Florida after a farewell ceremony at Joint Base Andrews.
Arguably the most famous of these letters Bush’s 1993 letter to Bill Clinton is also the most comparable to the Trump-Biden dynamic, as both featured presidents leaving office following unsuccessful re-election bids and hard-fought campaigns.

How Can Trump Reach His Followers
Immediately after the Twitter ban – a platform the president has been obsessed with since he first ran for office and where he regularly spoke to his 88 million followers – Trump vowed he would not be SILENCED! and promised a big announcement soon.
But striking out on his own will take time. For the moment, Trump, who leaves office on Jan. 20, is left with alternatives such as online conservative platform Gab, a free-speech network with almost no censorship rules, that has far less of a reach.
Aides and supporters are already turning to Gab and the platform MeWe to amplify his messages in the coming days, experts said. Other likely outlets are video platform Rumble and video streaming service DLive, along with alternate news sites such as American Media Periscope, said Monica Stephens, assistant professor at the University of Buffalo, whose research focuses on topics including social media.
I dont think Trump will join these smaller platforms himself. It is more likely he will create something on his own as opposed to joining something subjected to somebody elses controls, she said.
In the meantime, he can tap Trump-friendly networks such as Fox News, OAN and Newsmax to get his message out. The other underutilized option is the White House press office, experts said. He can continue to hold briefings or distribute statements and videos until the end of his term.
Contact Tracing And The President: What’s Next After Positive Covid
Rep. Nanette Barragán, D-Calif., tweeted, “Unfortunately, POTUS’ experience with COVID may determine if he changes his tune and attitude or not. If he quickly recovers & is symptom free, will he continue to mock those who wear a mask? Will he still say ‘it is what it is’? Or continue to downplay its danger?”
for breaking news and alerts on Trump’s Covid-19 diagnosis
One Democrat, Rep. Bill Pascrell of New Jersey, retweeted a video clip from Tuesday’s presidential debate in which Trump mocked Biden for wearing a mask. Pascrell said, “Please wear a mask. It protects you and it protects others around you.”
“Now, President Trump must quarantine completely and strictly follow CDC guidance before he puts anyone else at risk. And the super-spreading rallies must stop. This virus is not a hoax,” Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., tweeted.
Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam said on Twitter that he sends his best wishes to the president and the first lady “and to the more than 46,000 Americans and 450 Virginians” diagnosed with the disease on Thursday. The governor and his wife tested positive for Covid-19 last Friday.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said in a statement Friday, “This virus doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor, a Republican or a Democrat, young or old. No one is immune. Not even the president.”
Rep. Brendan Boyle, D-Pa., said on Twitter that he hopes the president and the first lady have a “speedy recovery” and said, “Far too many families have had to suffer because of this virus.”
