Dems trash Trump because they can't defeat him

This letter is in response to a letter that appeared in The Daily Advance on Nov. 17 that didn’t give President Trump any credit for the many — and I mean many — good things he has done.

The Democratic Party is working hard to figure out how to run against President Trump in 2020. Democrats have admitted they can’t run against him on issues that are important to a majority of the American people. So, what do you do if you are a yellow dog Democrat? Trash him, day after day, and give him credit for nothing.

How can you act like you love America, and not appreciate the work President Trump has done? You have to have half a brain cell to not see this. When people run from the truth, it creates ignorance. The many good things President Trump has done are based on facts. We can have an opinion on anything, but facts will blow an opinion away.

The letter states disapproval of a statement President Trump made about how to handle the caravan of migrants trying to cross our southern border. The letter suggested President Trump wanted to shoot kids who were trying to cross the border. This is a plain old lie. 

The president did tell U.S. border agents to “consider rocks rifles.” Rocks are considered, and would be in a court of law, depending on the circumstances, a deadly weapon. Give me the names of mothers, wives, or any loved one, who wouldn’t care if our soldiers had rocks thrown at them. I love our military, police officers, or anyone who is protecting the citizens of the United States. When someone is trying to do them harm, I think they should have the right to defend themselves in whatever way they can.

The letter went on to state that President Trump does not know the U.S. Constitution. The constitution does not give anyone the right to enter our country when our laws say they can’t. The constitution does not give anyone the right to destroy private property, throw rocks, shoot guns, or whatever, at our police or military. We’ve had a breakdown of law and order. President Trump is the man with enough guts to bring it back.

The title The Daily Advance gave the letter was: Time for Americans to notice what is going on. The American people have already done this. This was done when President Trump beat Hillary Clinton in 2016. Clinton was a two-term first lady, a former U.S. senator and a former Secretary of State. And still, it wasn’t good enough to keep Donald J. Trump from becoming president.

In 2020, President Trump will be re-elected for a second term by a landslide. Who in their right mind could argue that he doesn’t deserve a second term? 

God bless President Donald J. Trump, and God bless America.
