An Open Letter to President Trump

26 January 2018

Mr Donald Trump
1600 Penn. Ave. NW
Washington, DC 20500

President Trump:

At the Davos meetings, you declared America “open for business.”  I cannot tell you how happy I am to hear this change of heart, especially since you took steps just a few days ago to close America from business.  In fact, much of your rhetoric, from NAFTA to pulling out of the TPP, were steps to close America to business.  I hope you will keep your word from Davos as backdown your claims to re-negotiate NAFTA and bring the US back into the TPP.  After all, as a businessman you must know that “being open for business” means both buying and selling.
