Future leader of America

Our 5-year-old grandson told our daughter these would be his rules if he was president: 1) Don’t camp in the woods where there are coyotes. 2) Don’t cross the street without looking. 3) Be nice to people. 4) Never do a fire drill and then forget to tell people to come back in.

If only the current administration would follow such sane and logical guidelines. I hope I am still alive when my grandson is old enough to decide whether he wants to apply his leadership qualities to elective office.
