Hi readers, it’s me, William. This week I want to write about Donald Trump. As I sit here writing this article, he is halfway through his first week as American President. And what a week it’s already been.

Every time I switch on the TV, pick up a newspaper or turn on the radio, everyone is talking about Donald Trump.

So, I’m sorry to go on about him here too, but there are two good reasons I want to write about him today. First is that my sister lives out in America with her family and so I want America to be well led, and for her to be safe. 

Second, I worry that now Donald Trump is one of the most powerful people in the world, will it affect people with disabilities like me? You see, last year I watched a short video clip of him taking the mickey out of someone with cerebral palsy. It was upsetting to see the future President of the USA being so disrespectful.

Even worse, on another occasion at a conference, Donald Trump had singled that person with cerebral palsy out from the crowd and asked the security guards to remove him from the room. It made me feel cross. I think Trump needs to improve his attitudes towards people with disabilities. 

It also makes me worry about what’s next. Will he be doing that to all people with disabilities? What if he doesn’t like someone being in the room, will they be asked to leave?

So, having been accepted and welcomed tonight in the Brewhouse and Carluccios, I truly hope that people with disabilities in America can go out and do the same there.
