Retired English Teacher Corrects Letter she received from Trump before Returning It

Well, US President Donald Trump may not be in the best of moods after a retired secondary school English teacher corrected a letter she received from him and sent it back to the White House.

Yvonne Mason, who lives in Atlanta and was a teacher for 17 years, said the letter would have barely passed and corrected its numerous grammatical errors that included 11 examples of incorrect capitalisation of words such as “president” and “state”.

“If it had been written in middle school, I’d give it a C or C-plus. If it had been written in high school, I’d give it a D,” Ms Mason said.

On the upside for Trump, she chose not to attach a grade to the corrected letter, which included the president’s signature, before posting it back to the White House.

Ms Mason argued the note – which was a reply to a note she had written about the Valentine’s Day school shooting in Florida which left 17 dead – was “stylistically appalling”.

She acknowledged the letter was likely to have been penned by a staff member rather than the president himself.

“When you get letters from the highest level of government, you expect them to be at least mechanically correct,” she said.

The teacher taught English at Hughes Middle School and Mauldin High School in Greenville for almost two decades before retiring last year.

So Trump and his people should have taken more time penning that letter. Lol.
