Both Donald Trump’s live address to the March for Life Friday and his actions as President on the issue of abortion won widespread praise from the thousands of pro-lifers who came to Washington for the 45th annual march.
But in speaking to several who offered kudos to Trump, Newsmax found some of them delivering “constructive criticism” to the President: namely, to watch the sometimes-rough language that he uses on Twitter.
“I’m glad he won, glad he’s President, and I am heartened by his sympathy to the pro-life cause,” said Michelle Anderson of Kenosha, Wisconsin, mother of six and in Washington for her second March for Life. “But I would tell him: ‘Get off Twitter.’”
Jennifer Bryson, co-founder of Yale Students for Life and a March for Life participant since 1990, agreed.
“I don’t like his tone,” she told us, “It associates the love of life — which he has definitely expressed — with a negative tone. He should do something about it.”
There were other opinions.
“We knew what we were getting when we voted for him,” said Michael Lopatic, former U.S. Marine from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, “and, hey, I know I didn’t vote for a saint.”
Cassandra Wiley of Woodbridge, Virginia, a U.S. Air Force veteran and self-styled “full-time Mom,” agreed.
"This is what you are going to get from a president when there is no filter on his words and he says what he means and means what he says,” she said.
Asked if his alleged references to Haiti and African countries as “s---holes” were offensive, Wiley — who is black — shot back: “Not at all. Look, I served in both places and they are so run-down by corrupt leaders that the people there think the same thing of their countries. That’s why so many of them want to leave."
