Dear Ms. Rapanos:
The constitution states that there are three grounds for disqualifying a presidential candidate.
1. If the outcome of the election was influenced by a foreign government; and not just any government, but Russia, our most formidable adversary.

2. Conflict of Interest. Mr. Trump has far flung business ventures around the globe which have already influenced his foreign policy diplomatic overtures, i.e., Taiwan, Pakistan, China, and Saudi Arabia.

3. Qualifications. Mr. Trump has never held public office, has demonstrated no knowledge of the constitution or executive branch and does not express the temperament necessary to hold a position of this power and responsibility.

For these three reasons, I urge you not to cast your vote for Mr. Trump.
