Yvonne Mason

A retired Atlanta schoolteacher identified as Yvonne Mason, has corrected a presidential letter and sent it back to U.S President, Donald Trump so he can learn from his mistakes.

According to Dailymail UK, Yvonne had written to Trump in the wake of the Parkland, Florida mass shooting, asking him to meet with the families of the victims and questioning him about school safety.

The former English high school teacher says that the letter she received his response, dated May 3, was full of grammatical errors.

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

Mason posted a photo of the letter, printed on White House stationary and bearing President Trump’s signature, on which she has made her own corrections.

‘Have y’all tried grammar style check?’ she wrote across the top of the note.

She also picked up grammatical errors such as ‘nation’ and ‘states’ being incorrectly capitalized. The former teacher circled both and gave brief explanations why they were wrong.

Another sentence, talking about how Trump had introduced a ‘rule’ banning devices into machine guns was branded unclear.

‘Explain ‘rule,’ she wrote.

‘Poor writing is not something I abide,’ said Mason, who retired from teaching English in South Carolina last year and admitted she was still in ‘grading-paper mode.’

‘If my students turned that in they would get exactly the same marks,’ she said.

Mason also says that the letter failed to address her concerns, but merely listed actions that had taken place after the shooting, such as listening sessions and the STOP School Violence Act.
