I heard my name so I turned around, and the man says “I know you” I replied “You do?” “Yea, your the guy with the truck”. And that was my introduction to Donald J Trump Jr.
There you are he said as he pointed to a picture of my truck on the presentation board, what an introduction. I had sent myself up! After a mention of New Hampshire’s famous poet and his poetry I started talking about my grandmother, who was a student of Robert Frost. Then onto my family, who have been on the same modest farm since the revolution. However I continued that my life is good, nice house, nice wife and cars. Then onto my reason for being here, to support you and your father. What you are doing is revolutionary, I have never seen anything like it in my lifetime I said. About the truck he asked, I replied that reactions are phenomenal, really positive across the spectrum. The only really nonreaction was on the Dartmouth College green. Many thumbs ups and horn blowing. As it was the eve of the election he asked what I thought about the polls. My reply was you will have it by double digits. Turned out I had it a little wrong, they had double the voters as the second place candidate.
We had a couple of laughs, we shook hands. I mentioned that he has the same proper firm handshake as his father. Then my best line, I said that when I was in manufacturing, I hired many people with a handshake, and I would hire you. Also I mentioned to him that we appreciate the hardships that his father’s candidacy will have on the Trump family. Finally as he was leaving, I said that your journey is just beginning.
I would like to think, that when Donald J Trump Jr returns, he will remember me.
