While some in the press used the days leading up to the first presidential debate to malign Republican nominee Donald Trump, the brash billionaire also enjoyed widespread support as he prepared to square off against Democratic rival Hillary Clinton Monday night.
One of the more memorable endorsements was attributed by Gateway Pundit‘s Jim Hoft to an 11-year-old boy who, like his favorite candidate, also happens to be named Donald John.
The letter, dated two weeks before it was published on Monday, contained some advice from the adolescent as well as the reasons he supports Trump despite being several years too young to actually cast a ballot for him.
Donny, as he is identified by Hoft, explained he only wrote the letter to Trump because he was unable to get through to the candidate’s campaign via phone.
He suggested Trump stick to the more measured moves of the past several weeks, namely the nominee’s visit to Mexico and his ongoing outreach to black voters.
“So I really think you should keep it up,” the youngster wrote, “but remember to watch your mouth and Twitter account with all respect.”
The letter went on to criticize the federal education standards known as Common Core, which Donny said he looks forward to leaving behind when he enters an advanced math program next year.
Beyond his approval of Trump’s position on education, the preteen supporter listed several other proposals he believes would benefit America under a President Donald Trump.
“So back to your policies,” Donny wrote, “I also think you’d be really good for national security on illegal immigration and terrorism and everything else related to national security because my cousin Richie is a Lance Corporal in the Marine Corps infantry.”
The boy also seconded Trump’s positions on economic issues and the construction of a wall along America’s southern border.
Though the letter did receive some social-media backlash, its young author earned praise from numerous Trump supporters, many of whom hope to see a response from the candidate himself.

Before signing off, Donny invited the real estate developer to join his fantasy football league and requested an invitation to the second presidential debate set for Oct. 9 in St. Louis, Mo.
