“The Trump Family I Know” by Lynn Patton, a black female Trump executive

Lynne Patton is the Director of The Eric Trump Foundation and Assistant to Eric Trump, Ivanka Trump, and Donald Trump Jr.

“Today I was compelled to sit down and write this letter. Not to anyone in particular, maybe even just for myself, but as a black female executive at the Trump organization, I can no longer remain silent about the repeated and reprehensible attempts to align my boss and his family with racist hate-mongering groups, campaigns and messaging.”

“The Trump family that I know is, without question, one of the most generous, compassionate and philanthropic families I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing and the honor to call friends. They have been incredibly loyal to me and the countless dedicated people they employ around the world – hiring more minority and female executives than any other company for which I’ve ever worked.”

“To equate racism with my boss’ call for a temporary moratorium on a flawed immigration system that radical Islamic terrorists continue to exploit, or the construction of an impassible wall to protect our borders from the influx of illegal drugs, is not only incendiary, it’s wholly irresponsible and only serves to embolden the very hatred these draconian groups espouse.”

“Rest assured I am a highly intelligent, free-thinking and independent woman. My options and decisions are based solely on fact, not fiction, speculation, assumption or hearsay.”

“This isn’t just a race to Mr. Trump. This isn’t just a race to his family nor to our veterans or the unemployed and because of that this family is willing to risk their own lives each and every day for the greater good of this country.”

“To the skeptics who will undoubtedly claim that I am doing this at the behest of the Trump family or with the promise of reward, I deliberately chose not to seek their approval nor council in advance to this video for fear that there would be more concern for me and its potential viral ramifications than they would be for themselves and the fact that quite simply this is the right thing to do.”

“God bless his family, God bless the voters and God bless the United States of America.”

    To just be very frank! If this video does not touch the deepest parts of all american hearts, Democratic or Republican. Then your just "NOT AMERICAN". This race is about and" ALL ABOUT " saving the America that has been so good to everyone. Just like Donald J. Trump! GO TRUMP!!!!

    1. I am Praying for Donald Trump. He is a Brave Man knowing what may happen to him since he speaks the truth, May God protect him , Peace Love and Joy, Celesta Lanham.

  2. I HAVE BEEN ON BOARD WITH TRUMP SINCE CHRIS CHRISTIE ENDORSEMENT…..WHEN I REALIZED DR. BEN COULD NOT COMPETE IN THIS POLITICAL QUAGMIRE, I MOVED TO THE TRUMP TRAIN. A NEW YORKER BY BIRTH, AND STILL AT HEART, I BELIEVE IN MR. TRUMP, AT THIS TIME I AM READING HIS BOOK "THE ART OF THE DEAL"……HE IS SO REAL, SO FULL OF ALL OF OUR FLAWS, AND FORTHRIGHT. I TRUST HIM. I SHARE HIS LOVE FOR MY COUNTRY, AND FIND THAT OUR VALUES ARE SIMILAR. I RESPECT HIM. THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE MY JOY THAT HE WILL REPRESENT US IN THE ELECTION.

    This was a powerful video and I can only hope that people will wake up and come to realize that Hillary will continue the destruction of America and bring us to Socialism that has proven to be a disaster in other countries. Donald Trump is now our only chance to save America. It will be tough to convince those who are content to live off government handouts to vote for Trump and to convince great numbers of Democrats to reject Hillary and their party's Socialist desires and vote Republican to save America. Both Hillary and Obama were inspired by Saul Alinsky's methods to transform America to a Socialist State and it is essential that This movement be stopped. Some may not like some of Trump's approach to issues, but we must put those concerns aside and provide all the support possible to defeat Hillary.

  4. My thought is….the only way this country will recover is by turning back to God's Word. STOP immigration from nations that we have nothing in common.

  5. Beautifully written…God bless The Trump Family..and this wonderful country. People need to see this video, please pass it along.

    What a beautiful, heartfelt tribute to the man and his family. Thank you for sharing your story. May God richly bless you for you honesty and courageous outpouring. My family truly believes Donald Trump will do everything in his power to make America the home of the brave, free and GREAT AGAIN.

  7. What a bunch of hogwash! I base my opinions on his actions and words since he's been running for President! His negative comments towards blacks and Latinos!

    I want to know HOW he's going to make this country great again! It's already great!

    He's been nothing but devisive!

  8. Haha. You contradict yourself by saying that we need to get back to following God's word and then right afterwards you say to STOP immigration. Just go read God's word about accepting a foreigner into your land. Just read about Jesus telling us to turn the other cheek. You my friend, need to start following God's word. Or maybe you like to pick and choose which Words of God to follow.

    1. Careful! Remember that annoying teaching of Our lord for people like you: "Remove the beam in your eye before you go hunting for the splinter in another's" The Church has always taught the right to self defense, its expanse to cover our lives and even onto the right of civil governments. By The Church, I mean the Roman Catholic Church. I assume you are members in good standing and not heretics of one sort or another. It not, then you really should pay much more attention to your own salvation than trying "gotcha" on the woman.

      Oh, one more thing, if you would educate yourselves about this Mexican thing you will discover they refer to it as the Reconquista. It is not immigration at all or an act of love, it is an act of war. It would be within our rights to not only build a wall, but lay minefields and raise other deadly defenses to protect our sovereignty

    I am a Trump supporter. He must become our next president. GO TRUMP! I was born & raised in NYC know very well of his achievements. At this time there is not a better choice.

  10. Delores Pinto

    I am a Trump supporter. I know of his achievements and trust him to win the next presidency.

    GO TRUMP! My personal pick. My husband also supports him.

    Nana52, if you don't get the difference between the political rhetoric in and of a campaign and what he does as a businessman and humanitarian, you should turn on something other than CNN. Actions and words in battle are much different than actions and words in "real life". Ask any veteran.

  12. I had the occasion to meet Donald Trump at a social gathering in a private home. True, he is pompous, aggressive and somewhat arrogant, even in a social setting. I have no doubt that he is difficult in business and I also believe he is afraid of nothing and of no one. We need a new approach to the many problems which diminish the standard of living here in the USA and we need to stand tall to the rest of the world. Trump can do that. He is indebted to no one. Of course, some countries, such as the UK, are strongly opposed to his presidency. They are afraid of his ability to react swiftly and strongly. That worries me also; however, we do have a system which should supply the checks and balances he may need. A businessman'a approach to budget and govt. waste won't be a bad thing. He is the only hope we have to beat Hillary and she must not ever be in the White House again.

  13. I've been with Mr.Trump since he announced and spoke about his run for president.Been a Union Carpenter 30 years and voted Reagan also.Many many Union people are going Trump because he speaks TOTAL COMMON SENSE and he loves to build.He's going to be the best President since George Washington.And my very personal view on immigration i that the U.S.A. needs massive immigration from Slovakia, Russia.Norway, Sweden, Denmark,Iceland, Latvia,Bulgaria,Greenland, etc. so we can have immigrants that LOVE America and will give of themselves instead of TAKE for themselves. And you won't see these immigrants waving anything but the American Flag.

  14. I have to agree..I must be American all the way…..I did shed a tear with this commentary ..I have stood behind Donald Trump since day one……..love the man and I believe he can " MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN"!! Soar with the Eagles Donald Trump! You've got it !! Praying for you and your family!!

    With all due respect, your affiliation with the Trump family was yours alone. You apparently know his kindness. However, his rhetoric to and against people are what has alienated many and therefore don't know these kind things you speak. Why should we believe you when he spews venom. I've taught my children to respect others not condemn them with hateful words. I can't imagine him addressing the United Nations or sitting in the oval office and calling him Mr. President or for that matter Hillary Clinton. He's going to need help in every corner. God bless us and guide us.

    1. Deaf ears…all we can do is hope that there are enough voters who are not blinded by the way they feel.

  16. Lynn needs to go on national TV with her testamony The people who need to see this will not see it on FB. Trump we need you as our next president. Go get them like you have it won. No more name calling. You can do it!!!!!
