An open letter to Mr. Donald Trump

An open letter to one of the front runners for the next US Presidency- Mr. Donald Trump, sharing some personal views and a request to get certain things done that would not only benefit him, but Millions others as well

The Open Letter

I read about the campaign of Donald Trump in news articles as well as an article written by Steve Kinsman.
There have been certain aspects which have set me thinking about a lot of things, and then I thought of writing an open letter to Donald Trump. I am not sure whether it will even come to his notice, but I am anyways proceeding with this.

The Open Letter:

"Mr. Donald it is nice to see you gaining a lot of popularity in the Round one for US Presidential elections. Perhaps you would be the front runners till last stage, or may be an eventual victors. I have read a lot about your controversial views on immigrants and other issues. No doubt you won't be readily accepting others' views, nor would they be yours. However, if you would pay even a little attention to some of the measures and approach that I am stating, your views would definitely be accepted by many :

Many in India want to set foot in United States and either study and settle there, or live and work for a few months, or years and earn big money, or a good life. Why?
Well: In India, for Millions even earning two square meals is a fight, and when one passes that stage, it is a struggle to keep on paying Rents, Electricity Bills. It is a struggle to get adequate water for drinking and other house purpose. Then, we also have the rising medical costs due to pollution, diseases etc. The Middle Layer among the well offs(the so called Middle Class) also has a fair set of problems like EMIs for Housing, Education costs, lack of good public transport, peer pressure to maintain a certain "Level" of living and increasing stress.
So, how can you help not only Indians, but perhaps Chinese, other Asians, Africans and many other folks who have such struggles. Well, you just need to do the following:

  1. Heavily subsidize the transfer of Clean Technology to Emerging nations and less developed ones. Give high tax breaks to individuals and companies doing such Technology transfers(of non-weapon type)or research on such technologies either in United States and elsewhere. Once such technologies' gains can start reaching the Americans as well as others, a lot of expenses in many of the countries on Pollution control, Health and Disease prevention would be curtailed. Hence, the public and Governments of these countries can focus on other things like education and innovation.
  2. This will in a way reduce the people who would be looking for healthier and cleaner living in United States.
  3. 1 US Dollar is nearly 65 Indian Rupees and 1 GBP is around 100. It is a no brainer that a person would have a tendency to run after such a currency which will get him more renumeration, and also act as incentive for companies in your country to get costs reduced by transferring work to such countries, where job growth is not as high domestically to sustain the population growth. Would this urge to "outsource" work be as high if say 1 US Dollar were just INR 10, or even 5?
  4. Shouldn't you be talking to your Government, European Union, IMF and World Bank to bring about some kind of currency parity, or may be help other countries get near to your level? May be this is an idealistic thought, but even if there is a minor change, won't it help reduce people's urge to come to United States, or England or European countries?
  5. Many of the countries in Asia and Africa have corrupt local and national governments who suck away many of the savings of their citizens through taxes, and in many cases ransom and extortions and who do not let the benefits of say World Bank Aid or IMF or other International agencies pass to the citizens in their countries who need them the most. Yes, there are NGOs who keep watch and protest against injustices but perhaps if you raise a voice, it will be the most heard. Imagine even an 10% incremental growth in the funds reaching the most poor and most needy in many countries. It would be perhaps in Thousands of Billions of Dollars and bring about a great growth for many.

  6. If people will have a better standard of living in their own country, would they bother to fly to or swim, or trek across to your shores? Perhaps not.

  7. Finally, you would perhaps have read about the Newton's third law: "Every action has an equal and opposite reaction."
  8. If people stop finding your country attractive enough to go for work, and settle, perhaps on day when people from United States would like to go and settle if an opportunity arises in your country, would they be welcoming?
    Won't there be any issues then? Would it truly serve Uncle Sam's purpose? Perhaps it is a tough question, but you might think of an answer.

I think if you get even 10 to 20% of the above things done, which is not easy, you would get a lot of votes, and perhaps not get too much brainstorming on the migration issue, which will be solved to a great extent.

Donald know the saying "The squeaky wheel gets the grease." If he is elected President of the United States I have a feeling that his campaign promises will be nullified by Congress and the Senate.

If Congress is still dominated by Republicans, there is every chance that much of Trump's nonsense will get a sympathetic ear.

The problem with open letters is that the person who should really be reading it is highly unlikely ever to do so!

yes many thanks but by now i think we all know that politicians speak lots of high sounding words and when in office only want to fill their pockets at the expense of many those you have written about...such a shame...

Open letters are what they are open letter, read by all except the concerned person. However Trump may like Reagon just win.

Mr. Trump.
I started having problems on Twitter when I began to express my personal opinion on how I’m going to vote in the United States. I knew that you would be elected president, because your state needs a change. But Twitter didn’t like it and it blocked two of my scientists ’records.
Now, when I express my personal, he again blocked my account without a vyakogo occasion. He does not touch our trolls and bots.
There are those who inject the virus through notifications, wrote a complaint to Twitter, but they did not take action.
I have questions.
Is Twitter afraid that my speeches will affect your democracy?
Does Twitter violate my right to a personal opinion?
What kind of social network, which blocks the personal opinion of people, confirmed by the arguments?
Good luck. Vyacheslav.
