Dear Mr. Trump,
Your bigoted opinions and convoluted ideas are seriously affecting the sentiments of Muslims around the world and I am definitely certain that your comments about women and people of other races have also upset many people.
Mr. Trump, maybe you have forgotten that America, as you know, was founded by illegal immigrants. Or have you forgotten that the rightful owners of the land you are trying to become the president of, are most definitely the Red Indians!
They were forced out of their homes and had their livelihoods stolen from them. They were oppressed and discriminated against. They were wiped out by the settlers who came to establish British colonies and now they are a novelty in America, you may see them in an Indian Casino or in the reservation camps that were built for them as compensation for taking their land and exploiting their resources.
Sir, you must realize that there is no such thing as a pure bred American as your country was founded by immigrants, or have you forgotten that you too hail from Scottish and German roots.
Recently we have seen that you were unable to defend the Muslim population within your country in front of world media. Here are some Muslims that have contributed greatly to American history and culture, hopefully, this may change the way you feel.
