President Donald J. Trump
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, D. C. 20500
Dear Mr. President:
I have written you sixteen times since you were elected President. As I have pointed out in the past, I am a Prophet of God in the name of JESUS. I am retired military, with over 20 years of honorable service to this nation. God revealed 9/11 to me before it happened – my life has not been the same since that happened. At the direction of God, I wrote President George W. Bush thirteen times and I wrote President Barack Obama over thirty times and all revelations have come to fruition. If the leadership would have adhered to the counsel of God in the name of Jesus:
(1) We would not have engaged in the war with Iraq without provocation.
(2) We would not have sown discord among the brothers in the Middle East and there would not have been an Arab spring.
(3) The Supreme Court would not have disregarded the rule of law in the same sex marriage case (Chief Justice Roberts said the decision was an act of will and the Constitution of the United States had nothing to do with the decision!)
(4) The boy scouts would be still called “boy scouts” and “morally straight” in their oath would still have meaning.
(5) We would not have lost the lives of so many military members.
(6) Hundreds of thousands of lives would have not been lost as the result of our military actions.
(7) God would not have sent so many destructive storms for correction to the United States.
(8) The mess in the Mid-East would not be a reality today.
(9) America would not have to continue to pay billions to repair our infrastructure because of damages from flooding and storms.
(10) America would not be experiencing a plague of national disasters unlike anything within the history of the nation. (This warning regarding the plague of national disasters was shared with President George W. Bush on October 26, 2001.)
On a side note, (11) President Trump, you probably would never have been elected President – however you were elected President of the United States of America to help effect much needed changes.
God revealed to me the need for change and I shared the revelation with President Barack Obama on August 19, 2016. President Trump, as I pointed out before, in the letter that I wrote you on February 4, 2017 your platform reflected the Way of the Lord in the name of JESUS in many areas and you were elected to effect much needed change.
I just wrote you on May 30, 2019 and June 5, 2019; I did not realize that I would be writing again so soon. However, there is a crisis brewing that needs your immediate attention. Listen very carefully; the Central Park Five case is in the news again. The recent release of the mini-series “When They See Us” puts this case before millions; to some it will be as if it just happened yesterday. The recent release makes it very clear what happened in 1989 and it shows the corruption within the system. Today there is no need for speculations. You are able to see the injustice to include the impact on them and their loved ones; moreover you see the injustice to include the mistreatment of these youth from the very onset, by the police, the investigators, prosecutors, and some of the guards and inmates at the prisons. You can also see the rush to judgement by the people to include yourself; Mr. President, you were featured in the production. It has been reported that you paid $85,000 for an ad to be published in a newspaper in the New York Times in 1989, demanding their prosecution and incarceration.
It also has surfaced that on April 24, 2013 you tweeted “The Central Park Five documentary was a one sided piece of garbage that didn’t explain the horrific crime of these young men while in the park.” Moreover, it is being reported that in 2016, you stated that you stood by what you did in 1989 when you published the ad in the newspaper. Mr. President, when I wrote you on June 5, 2019, I did not know any of this information. In fact, I had never heard of the Central Park Five Case. However, today it is before me as if it just happened yesterday. Moreover, shortly it will be before millions across the country. Now allow me to put on my social actions hat; while I was in the military, I advised commanders at every level on human relations concerns for more than sixteen years. Some of those commanders had preconceived notions about minorities and women. I was an expert in the field; in 1976, (I was 26 years old at the time) Headquarters TAC sent me to a base after someone had fire-bombed the base commander’s car, the wing commander’s car, and after someone had taken over the command post with a M16. My job was to go there and find the root causes and to help address the racial concerns. Truly, I have been very effective in addressing dire situations over the years. In this communication, I will also share with you from that level of experience of working serious human relations concerns.
The mini-series “When They See Us” is believable and millions can identify with this type of injustice that has happened to them, a family member, or someone who they know. As I am writing this letter, it is in the news that a police pointed a gun at a ten year old black boy in Utah while the child was outside playing in his grandmother’s front yard. The boy’s mother, a white woman reports that when she came out and questioned the officer – the officer got in his car and drove off. Mr. President, this was not part of a movie, however this was another episode of the reality of life in America for black boys and men – “When They See Us!” Surely, Mr. President this problem is real and America needs to hear from you, Mr. President. However, before they hear from you it is imperative you understand the problem of stereotyping and its affects. Moreover, it is important that you understand the harmful affects of speaking out on issues without having all the facts to help you make the best informed decision.
I pray that you take time out and watch the four and one half hours mini-series, every minute of it. This will serve as a mini-course in race relations – you will be able to see some of the failures of the system –the corruption within the system – the corruption of some members of the law enforcement community – the effect of stereotyping and racism – and the mistake that you made when you first spoke out in 1989 without having the facts. It will be a serious mistake to call this production a piece of garbage. Moreover, I am prayerful that you will see a need to repent from your stance in 2016 regarding this matter when you were running for President.
Mr. President, in 1989, you thought that you were correct when you took out that ad. As I studied effective communication, I recalled an author of a book making this statement: “If you believe something to be true, you have an almost infinite capacity to delete information that contradicts that belief. In addition, if you believe something to be true, you will go through your life searching for information that supports that belief and ignore information that does not.” Mr. President, you are President of the United States of America, it is imperative that you repent from this wrong. Your action today will have a direct impact on the events that will happen in this nation. This could be a very long hot summer if this is not addressed now.
Mr. President, your actions today can help effect healing that is needed in the nation, help improve human relations, and cause many to begin to look at race relations from a different vantage point. It is important to continue to support the police; however it is of the utmost importance not to support corruption of the system. Moreover, it is also important that the people hear from you and the Attorney General of the United States expressing this resolve. Moreover, it is also important to take measures to ensure that all incidents of alleged police misconduct be investigated in a timely manner. Therefore, Congress should be encouraged to send legislation to your desk for signature to that end.
Mr. President, Jesus said that there is no prophet accepted in his own country. Therefore, as a prophet, I will never be accepted here in America; nevertheless, my job is to bring forth warnings and provide counsel at the direction of God in the name of JESUS. I give God the glory in the name of JESUS – God has not showed me people rioting all over the country – this is a good thing. I am hopeful that you will adhere to this counsel from God. I am prayerful that God will not show me the revelation of people rioting across the nation. However, I would like to reiterate what God showed me on June 1, 2019.
Reference my letter dated June 5, 2019, I shared a dream that God gave me regarding an incident that will happen soon in the United States. Again, the dream and revelation are as follows:
“On June 1, 2019, I had a dream regarding the need for training of the people on race/human relations. I thought that I was on a military base, however I am not sure. However, next I was outside – I do not know where, however I know that I was in America. Next, I see a small vehicle; I believe it was a small pick-up. The vehicle was smoking; I noticed that the vehicle was on fire. I called out to the people to call 911. Next the vehicle went into a building; however there was no immediate impact. Therefore, it is possible the vehicle went in a garage of the structure. Next, I notice smoke coming from the building; the building appears to be several stories high. Then, I notice a person on top of the building – the person then jumps. I say Call 911. I immediately awake from the dream. It was as if I was actually there. This will happen soon. Often when God shows me something like this it happens within 30 days.
Notice in the dream the people had a need for race relations/human relations training. I said that I thought that I was on a military base, but I was not sure. Here is the revelation. The military is only a reflection of what is going on in our society. Race relations and human relations training is needed throughout America. Therefore, there must be a comprehensive program to address this problem in the nation. There are some deep rooted problems that are brewing beneath the surface and it needs national attention. These problems must be approached from this premise.
Mr. President, it may be very difficult for you to understand the severity of the race/human relations problem. It is imperative that you receive a detailed briefing of the true state of the racial and human relations climate in America; the briefing should include the current impact of racism, discrimination, disparity in our criminal justice system, and the corruption within some of our police departments. Here in America, there are a number of factors that must be addressed to improve interpersonal communications. However, recently we have witnessed some indicators of the problems with a few shooting incidents. Some of these incidents are the results of ineffective communications, perceptions and the failure of the system to address the needs of the people. However, there are thousands of more subtle incidents that never make the news. President Trump with the divine help of God you are in position to lead a plan that could shock the nation. Every channel of communication can be activated. This can be done through churches, educators, business communities, grant makers, gospel singers, rappers, soul, country western, rock stars and entertainers, the stars of Hollywood, the media, politicians, and every citizen.
Mr. President, again when I wrote you on June 5, 2019, I was unaware of the Central Park Five story and the related developments regarding it. However, God has showed me this problem also needs to be addressed by the leadership of the nation; surely Hollywood has played a role in sharing this crisis with the people. The Director Ms. Ava DuVernay and the host of producers, to include the co-producer, associate producer, and the team of executive producers, to include Oprah Winfrey should be commended for this production. President Trump, surely this work is not a piece of garbage. The concerns are clearly established! Here is the key: “The leadership of the nation must be lead to address all of these concerns. Mr. President, as Chief Executive of the United States, God can guide you to work all these concerns at the same time. President Trump, it is important to humble yourself and understand that God has blessed people in this nation with the knowledge, abilities, talents, and resolve to address these concerns. To truly make America great again – you must realize that God is the one that gives you power to lead His people.
President Trump, you are in my daily prayers. I pray in the name of Jesus, that you will take time out and read every communication that God has sent to you through my hands. President Trump, God has blessed you with abilities to help effect much needed changes. However, you must recognize and respect the abilities of others. Moreover, it is also important to take time out and learn from past failures of the nation. God has shared His counsel in the communications that I have shared with you. Surely, God is also speaking through others. Nevertheless, I know beyond a doubt that God wants to bless America and you were elected to help effect change. However, it is of the utmost importance for you not to be lifted up in pride, humble yourself and give God the glory in the name of JESUS.
Mr. President, before I close allow me to share two paragraphs from the letter that I wrote you on February 4, 2017.
“President Trump, as a Christian you have a difficult job as President of the United States. Surely, you are the President for all the people that live in America; therefore you must work to ensure that their rights are protected. However, the values of Christians must never be compromised – Christians must have rights to preach the gospel of Christ and the right to live their convictions. It is through the gospel of Christ healing of the land will take place and people are given the opportunity to repent from their sinful lifestyles. Moreover, through the counsel of the Lord, leaders learn how to ensure that there is no oppression of the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless. America needs the counsel of the Lord in the Name of JESUS.
Mr. President, again the future of the nation is now at hand. Go forth with the resolve to make America great again. Take advantage of sound counsel and learn the precepts of God and learn to fear God based on those precepts. Work to bridge the divided leadership of the nation. Seek peace instead of war. Share the resolve with Congress, both houses and the people. America needs healing; therefore the leadership of the nation must fear God and understand that the shedding of more innocent blood and playing political games is not the answer. Therefore, it is time for good strong leadership. The people have elected you President Trump and they have elected leaders who are capable to rise up to meet these challenges; however they must be willing to listen to one another; set the tone for others to follow. I am praying for you, President Trump, Vice President Pence and your appointments and all other elected officials of the land. Let us work together to make America great again.”
May God bless and keep you in the name of JESUS!
Sharing in love,
