Hear the Stories of People Across the US From All Walks of Life
This is the second blog post in this series where I have been posting video highlights from the Republican National Convention (RNC). In these moving and informative video clips, people from all backgrounds and all walks of life share their reasons for supporting President Donald J Trump.

Why I Am Voting for President Trump: He Is Committed to Ending ISIS and Terrorist Groups Around the World
This tragedy was another story that moved me to tears, as I listened to the parents of a young woman captured and murdered by ISIS. Obama did NOTHING to help these people. President Trump, on the other hand, killed the leader of ISIS so that no more hostages or soldiers would suffer heinous torture and murder at his hands.
Carl and Marsha Mueller Share the Story of Their Daughter Kayla
Carl and Marsha share:
“Kayla was mostly held in a 12 x 12 cell in solitary confinement….They shaved her head, they beat her, and tortured her. The leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, raped her repeatedly.”
“For 18 months, she endured. And we endured an agonizing back-and-forth between us, the Obama administration, and ISIS. We put all our faith in the government, but the government let us down….What a difference a President makes. Under President Trump, US Army special operators conducted a raid on al-Baghdadi’s compound. After we learned that al-Baghdadi was killed, we learned something else. The operators named themselves Task Force 814 after August 14, Kayla’s birthday. And the mission was named Operation Kayla Mueller. To those soldiers, thank you. Kayla was looking down on you….The Trump team gave us empathy we never received from the Obama administration. The Obama administration said it was doing everything it could. The Trump administration is. If Donald Trump had been president when Kayla was captured, she would be here today.”

Why I Am Voting for President Trump: He Has Compassion for People and Passed the First Step Act, True Criminal Justice Reform
Alice Johnson was incarcerated for life for drug charges. She was released early, and her sentence was commuted by President Donald Trump in 2018.
Alice Johnson Shares the Story of Her Incarceration and Release
“In 1996, I began serving time in prison–life plus 25 years. I had never been in trouble. I was a first-time, nonviolent offender. What I did was wrong. I made decisions that I regret. Some say: You do the crime; you do the time. However, that time should be fair and just.”
“When President Trump heard about me, about the injustice of my story, he saw me as a person. He had compassion and he acted….When I was released on June 6, 2018, I ran across that road and hugged my grandchildren for the first time….Six months after President Trump granted me a second chance, he signed the First Step Act into law. It was real justice reform. And it brought joy, hope, and freedom to thousands of well-deserving people….I pray that you will not just hear this message, but that you will be inspired by my story, and your compassion will lead you to take action for those who are forgotten. That’s what our President Donald Trump did for me. And for that, I will be forever grateful.”

Why I am Voting for President Trump: He Cares About the Health of the American People, and Passed the Right to Try Act
President Trump passed the Right to Try Act so that people with terminal illnesses could try experimental drugs and treatments. Natalie Harp, in the video below, is one of those people.
Natalie Harp, Cancer Survivor and Right to Try Advocate Shares Her Story
“I wouldn’t be alive today, if it wasn’t for you. About five years ago, I was the victim of a notoriously deadly medical error. I survived but only to be diagnosed with a rare and terminal bone cancer.”
“I was told I was a burden to my family and to my country. And that by choosing to die early, I’d actually be saving the lives of others by preserving resources for them, rather than wasting them on a lost cause like myself. And when I failed the chemotherapies that were on the market, no one wanted me in their clinical trials. I’d make them look bad. They didn’t give me the right to try experimental treatments, Mr. President. You did. And without you, I’d have died waiting for them to be approved.”
