An 8-year-old boy wrote an incredible letter to Donald Trump, summed up exactly why he shouldn't be president

Eight-year-old Jackson Wheeless, of Millis Road Elementary in Jamestown, North Carolina, wrote a letter to Donald Trump and it pretty much sums up exactly why he shouldn't be allowed anywhere near the White House.

Jackson's teacher encouraged all of her students to watch the news, and Jackson, having seen Trump one too many times on the news wrote down what he thought.

WNCT published the letter in its entirety.

Jackson pointed out some of the reasons so many people take offence to Trump...

I saw a video of you making fun of a handicapped reporter, and I thought that was TERRIBLE!

Here's the incident in question:

And some of the more worrying things he has said...

You bragged that you 'could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody' and wouldn't lose any votes. I REALLY hope this is not true!

You make kids afraid when they hear that someone who could be our next President would even think about doing something like that.

Jackson also had something to say about the way Trump spoke about others:

I would like to know if you would want your young children or grandchildren hearing the things you say about people. Do you ever feel sorry about the things you say? Do you ever feel sorry about the things that you say that are hurtful to others? I have never heard you apologize.

Like when he proposed to ban muslims from the country, and when he refused to condemn the racist white supremacist group Ku Klux Klan and David Duke, its former leader.

Jackson ends the letter by informing Trump of the impact he has on children, who are the future of the country:

I would like for you to know that kids are watching you. The President of the United States is supposed to be our leader. You should be someone that we can learn from and hope to grow up to be like. I do not think you are doing a very good job of this.

Please, Mr Trump, start thinking about the children in this country. We may not be able to vote yet, but we are the future.

I will choose to be a better person than what you have been teaching me to be.

It seems even children are unable to stomach Trump.
