Some of the most incredible people I know voted for Donald Trump. By the same token, some of the most incredible people I know voted for Hillary Clinton.

The people that I know who voted for Trump are not racist, misogynistic, or hateful. Neither are the people that I know who voted for Clinton anti-American, misandristic, or intolerant. If you are someone who defines the people you know by who they voted for and not as the person you have always known them to be, then you subscribe to a philosophy that is greatly damaging to America.

I will never think any less of a person who has different views than I do because some of the most beautiful, inspirational people l know will disagree with what I believe all day long. And, at the end of the day, they are still that beautiful, inspirational person I have always known them as.

Don’t think less of people because some of their beliefs don’t align with yours. And don’t lose quality people in your life because you chose politics over friendship.
