Congratulations to President elect Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence

Now that Mr Trump has become president here are some things that those implementing the President elect's platform may want to consider:

Mr Trump's platform is quite ambitious and I believe that unless things are done in the right order, some important programs may fail. For example: I think it would be better to maintain a cash flow for public works programs by not cutting taxes until some of the the promised jobs are created. Not only public sector jobs but private sector jobs as well. Let the cows come home first, before you try to milk them. It has always been better to cut taxes when the economy is running on all cylinders. You don't want your initial programs to stall before the midterm elections, lose support in Congress and the Senate and then become a lame duck president in the last 2 years of your mandate. A little pre-planning can go a long way.

Trying to preserve the good parts of Obamacare I think was a good move, no need to "throw out the baby with the bathwater" or as you put it, the swampwater. And I'm sure there is plenty of endemic swampwater to clear out, so the American people who pay taxes can get some of the services that they deserve and have paid for (in taxes).

Perhaps you can also encourage a better training program for police officers so that guys who answer too gruffly to the police don't come home in a pine box to their wives. Also people (especially protesters) should show a little more respect to police officers. The police are performing a tough job in a pressure cooker and honest cops deserve some respect. No one should want to stress out a police officer by pushing them to the breaking point. The recent violent post election protesters in US cities not only show contempt for the police but the democratic process as well.

Also, I think it would help to remind law abiding blacks and Hispanics that you have no quarrel with them in the workforce and business if they are US citizens and reliable employees and employers. Some people are nervous because they have never understood much about Republicanism. Despite that, I think the US Constitution is one of the finest documents written by human minds, and protecting the constitution with conservative minded judges should be applauded.

God Bless America
