“I never had a sense of security and safety when Obama was president.”
9/11 was a defining moment for me. All of the sudden I felt more than I ever had—I had a lot of instability in my life growing up—but I felt so helpless that day, and so scared.
I didn’t know what was happening. All I knew was that, as a mother and a grandmother, I wanted to protect my family, and that’s when I became very interested in what was going on politically.
I never had a sense of security and safety when Obama was president because I felt like he was weak and he didn’t really have our best interest in mind, and I feel like Trump does.
Even though he’s not perfect and he’s done a lot of things wrong, I think he still, deep down, has a real interest in helping Americans and exalting us in the eyes of the world again and working together with other countries in order to make us all better off.
I feel so grateful for one thing: not that Trump is perfect, but that Hillary didn’t get elected because I feel like it would have been such a nightmare if she had gotten elected.
