Listen, I have given the whole international strategy quite some thought. The funny thing is Donald, when you started out, you had all the right priorities. You pushed NATO, you wanted to be friends with Mr. Putin, you wanted to fight China and ISIS.
These were also my priorities. Why, because it is pretty obvious that these things are the right things to do. China is a threat, ISIS is a threat. Being friends with Mr. Putin just makes sense.
I know that there are a lot of people out there that wants to influence you, and truly I see your ability to listen to them as something important and a true quality.
But you should also listen to yourself. You may not have that much experience with international politics, but you did get the priorities right in the first place.
Washington D.C. is a though place, especially with all the pressure on you. But you need to hold on to your own ideas of how to do things. Because they are mostly right.
You know, my feeling is, that when you started all this, you did it partly from interest and partly because you wanted to change something.
Power is a difficult thing. It corrupts, and sometimes it leads you away from the things you started believing in at the beginning. I happen to think that most of the things you ran on are right, because it is more than just you or all your advisers fighting for your ear. At the end of the day, it is the small man at the bottom rung, who cannot make ends meet, because his job was lost, who I am fighting for. I think, it is the same with you.
So what I am saying is, believe in your own ideas, they are sound.
G-d bless the United States of America.
