Despite all the backlash from people over the election of Donald Trump to President there are still some who like and support him. Take for example a judge from Texas. He made headlines when at a citizenship ceremony he told those being sworn in as Americans that if they can not accept the President Elect then they have no business in the United States and should go to another country.
The Judge’s name is John Primomo and the hearing was located in San Antonio Texas at the Institute of Texan Cultures. He said during the hearing,
“He will be your president and if you do not like that, you need to go to another country.”
I can assure you that whether you voted for him or you did not vote for him, if you are a citizen of the United States, he is your president.”
He was specifically pointing to those who have been all over social media and protesting in the streets who yell the phrase, “he’s not my president.” As the judge pointed out, if they are American citizens then he is their President.
Primomo also referenced the recent protests by NFL players protesting the national anthem by sitting or kneeling out. He said,
“I detest that, because you can protest things that happen in this country; you have every right to. You don’t do that by offending national symbols like the national anthem and the flag of the United States.”
KENS-TV got hold of this story and when they did Primomo clarified that his comments were not meant to be divisive but instead inclusive. They were not meant to be political in the least bit. His primary point was that the office of the presidency must be respected, even if he did not vote for Donald Trump either.
It is nice to see a positive voice among the crowd of crazies come out and say something that could potentially bring people together. Instead of rip them apart like so many people want to do. While others protest and riot in the streets to whine about not getting what they wanted people like Primomo have a positive message to send to the world.
Especially to those just beginning their lives here in the United States. It is better to start on a positive note than a negative as their new lives as Americans begin. Hopefully others take his lead as well.
