I'm Jewish. I'm a woman. I'm a millennial. And I'm incredibly proud to be a Republican supporting Donald Trump for president.
For many of us around the country, the media culture has made coming out as a Trump supporter feel as nerve-wrenching as introducing yourself at a support group meeting, as if we have a problem instead of an opportunity.
Rather than focusing on what should matter in an election — the economy, borders and education — there has been too much focus on Trump's less than eloquent soundbites. Clearly, he's not the most "politically correct" person in the room. But I have supported Trump from the very beginning because, without question, I believe he is the best person for the job.
Donald Trump is the best person for our economy, to protect our borders, to improve our education system and to protect our children and our collective future.
Most importantly, he's the best person for action. That's the key: action. People seem to forget that. There's plenty of talk about everything except action.
Didn't our parents all teach us that actions speak louder than words?
As co-owner of a business, I see my share of resumes. When I look at a resume, it's not titles in previous positions that stand out to me. Rather, it's the substance of the accomplishments achieved under those titles that stand out.
If our country has learned one thing over the last eight years, it's that a successful resume for president must go deeper than a list of titles — the former senator and community organizer had little experience in the art of action.
Supporters of Trump's opponent tout her former roles as if the titles alone represent action and qualify her for the presidency: first lady, senator and secretary of state. As a people, we should not insult the presidency by making titles alone the prerequisite.
At one point in the first debate, Hillary Clinton alleged that Trump's father gave him a $14 million loan. It was offered as a way to discount Trump's business success.
Although Trump says that amount is inaccurate, let's assume for a moment she's correct.
Choosing to use that loan as a negative, Clinton only painted half the picture. She failed to point out that, even with a conservative estimate of Trump's net worth — let's say $4.5 billion — it would mean a 32,143 percent return on that initial investment.
That level of success comes from action. It comes from being infected with the success gene, from never stopping at any obstacle, from never quitting.
It comes from the type of action the United States needs to get our economy back on track, to get our roads paved, to get our schools fixed and our borders safe.
In the words of Trump's father, Fred Trump, "some of my best deals were made by my son, Donald. Everything he touches seems to turn to gold."
In the last eight years, America has lost sight of its gold standard. We need Trump's love for the U.S., his passion for success and his golden touch.
