January 24, 2019 Updated: January 26, 2019

WASHINGTON—As President Donald Trump heads into the third year of his presidency, The Epoch Times asked his supporters from across the country, “What words of wisdom do you have for President Trump going into 2019?”

Answers may have been edited for brevity and clarity.

Don Hindman, Bikers for Trump

“Keep the government shut down, declassify the documents, and eliminate the Obama executive order that was used to bribe Congress to vote for the disaster known as Obamacare by allowing them and their staff to be exempt from it. Make sure the next Attorney General is going to do his/her damn job and keep fighting, POTUS. We have your six.”

“If President Trump were to read this, I would tell him that I am so proud of him and all he has done for the country, and for his stance on things, and his backbone, and not [being] willing to be a pushover just to make others happy. The American people are behind you, and praying for you and your family. I can honestly say that I am proud to be an American with President Trump as my president! God bless the USA.”

“Keep appointing the justices and use the Senate to promote your agenda. There are a lot of Americans that don’t pay attention to Twitter because they are working or have some type of responsibility to account for. Sure, it is a source for the mainstream media as they have to live on it, but it stopped being a bright shiny object when all of the nastiness and shaming [started appearing]. And quite frankly, when everybody is an expert, nobody is an expert. I think the president is winning with China and should stay the course, but do a better job of explaining how we are winning. Our European friends are paying the consequences of globalism because they forgot to fix their own countries first. Why the left loves ‘The European Model’ is beyond logic. Keep the economic pressure on Iran and Korea.”

Tiffany Short, manufacturing, Rosehill, Virginia

“My biggest thing I would tell Trump is to keep taking a stand for Americans. Don’t back down. I truly believe because he pushes for things that he sees will help us, he won’t give up on them. That’s what makes him a great president and America—he is fighting for us!! If people would quit wishing for him to fail and see the stuff he is helping [with] and wanting to do, then they might come to realize that President Trump is one of the greatest presidents we have had. He is not a politician, he’s not there for the money, hence, he isn’t even getting paid for putting up with all the crybabies and bullies that he and his family have endured. People should want our president to succeed because if he does, we as Americans do.

“I have never seen such awful, disgusting things be said about a president. People used to respect whoever was in the White House, even if they didn’t agree with them. This is a time when actors and actresses can say they wish the president dead and no one bats an eyelash. Society has truly lost its morals.”

“If I were addressing President Trump directly, I’d tell him he’s doing a fine job. Out here in Lee County, Virginia, we appreciate his efforts and support his refreshingly open way of speaking to the American people. We are seeing higher wages and lower prices at the gas pumps, and let me say, that’s a big deal around here! Keep pushing forward!  Keep bringing jobs back to American soil. Continue thinking of Americans and putting our needs first, above other countries. Keep making America great again, it’s working!”

Jared Totsch, communications industry, St. Louis

“Follow through on your campaign promises. Build the barrier (wall/fence). Don’t take any further action against the 2nd Amendment, your action against bump fire stocks angered a large portion of your base who elected you. Your base will abandon you if you take any more jabs at the 2nd Amendment. Pass pro-gun legislation, such as the ‘Hearing Protection Act.’  Do not pass any ‘red flag’ gun-control legislation. Abolish the federal Department of Education. Abolish the federal EPA. Organizations such as the DOE and EPA should exist at the state level only, not the federal level. This will allow states to compete against each other, while reducing burdensome and wasteful federal regulations. Abolishing such organizations would also bring the federal government closer to compliance with the 10th Amendment.”

Rita Eveland, retired, Nashville

“President Trump, do not lose heart. Your people love you and your family. We lift you up in prayer every day. These wanton fools who now control the House of Representatives are far from the hearts of ‘We the People.’ They are clowns and buffoons and they shame the hallowed halls through which they walk. Not a one of them works for us! They should have to wear jackets like Nascar drivers so we would all see clearly who has bought and paid for them. Stay strong, dear man, and know that there are many whose confidence in you has never wavered.”

Floyd Conaway, veteran

“Mr. President, thank you for all your hard work and effort. Please continue to Make America Great Again. You have accomplished so much with no help at all from the Democrats and little help from the Republicans. We The People that elected you as our president appreciate all you have done and are doing. Build the wall. Do not be swayed or discouraged by what you see on the fake news. They show the mobs of fools that proclaim to hate you, but allow those that gather to support you to go unnoticed and unseen. We love you and pray for you.”

Len Spadaro, truck driver and Desert Storm veteran, Hazleton, Pennsylvania

“Keep doing what you’re doing, Mr. President. Please don’t back down, and stand your ground against the new House, now and for the next six years. Let your resolve get stronger, your spine get longer, and your faith in your supporters, your family and, most importantly, in God grow, to the point where you, your presidency, and your faith in God and country become an indestructible, impenetrable force that we will love more, and the leftists will loathe … to eternity!”

Nena Chancy, Tampa, Florida

“My advice to Trump is to stand firm and continue on. He’s doing a great job for our nation and has proven that he meant the things he said when he was running for office. I will proudly vote for him again in 2020.”

Betty Risinger, retired, Las Vegas

“Hold the line and don’t give in to Democrats. They do not have our interest and concerns at heart. More judges, more tax cuts, less illegal entry to America.”

Pat McDonough, electronic technician, Rochester, Minnesota

“Stay firm and keep up the good work. It could get rough.”

Ed Halland, retired

“I would tell President Trump to hold firm and not compromise. He has my support. He was my last choice in the primaries because, with a colored past, I didn’t believe he would deliver on what he promised. He has delivered on what he promised and he promised my values. I also encourage him to keep tweeting and don’t allow the mainstream press to define the issues. Fake news is real. Keep fighting fire with fire, and we’ll do what we can on our end.”

“Stand your ground regarding the money for the wall. Be prepared to make a deal in which the Democrats get something they want as well. The wall is non-negotiable. If they won’t participate, then use your border security funds to ramp up security along our border.”

“Mr. President, continue to remember all the rallies and how we all supported your ideas and sentiments. We support you 100 percent!”
