The R word with special olympics

Dear Obama,
My name is Douglas and i am a special olympics athlete and global messenger with special olympics Hillsborough county Florida and also many other things the sports that i had played is soccer, softball, basketball, bowling and we are trying to spread this out to tell people about a campaign that we do and its called spread the word to end the word . I am currently living with my sister Virginia and starting soon with special olympics Virginia I was wondering can a president talk about that stuff during a campaign. I wanna run for president when i get older and i would live for you and your family to help me out with a campaign and also help me raise money for it . I am turning 28 this Sunday and there is a lot of stuff that i would love to talk about in my campaign and what I could change to help America and any advice from you will be helpful as well. Miss you as president and by the way I had voted for you as president. Right now I don't like what Donald Trump is doing so far he is a disgrace to the office and he needs to he is making it harder for people who are on social security like me and struggling with finances. You were the best president I know and it would be nice if your wife ran for president because if she did i would vote for her in a heartbeat ?. Please email me back and let me know thanks your friend Douglas .
