This past week, a second-grader at my school where I am principal sat in my office with two boys who accused him of hitting them. I said to them, “In my office, I expect everyone to tell the truth. That may be difficult and scary, but you will feel better and learn more if you tell the truth.” Robert immediately said he had hit these boys and tearfully apologized, promising to not do it again.
Mr. Trump, you are about to be the leader of the millions of elementary students in our great country. Most of them are aware of the misrepresentations you have made hoping to become president of the United States — the office once held by Abraham Lincoln. I expect everyone in that office to tell the truth. It may be difficult and scary, but you will feel better and learn more if you tell the truth.
Please, Mr. Trump, help my students and the students of America to be honest. Set the example and apologize, promising to never do it again.
