Most Americans do care Trump not up to job of president


Sunday, June 30, 2019

A recent letter-writer claimed he does not care that our current president is a jerk, an egomaniac, that he is crude and insults people or that he does not speak well.

The president represents the United States to the world, and so far he has been an embarrassment and a danger to the world order.

We care that we have a president and an administration that lie on a daily basis.

We care that the president is clueless about our Constitution.

We care that this president believes he is above the law.

We care that he has no idea how our government works.

We care that he has selected a Cabinet of officials as incompetent as he is.

We care that he denigrates the great institutions of the United States, that he calls the press the “enemy of the people,” and that he takes the word of our enemies over that of our intelligence services.

This president has praised murderous dictators and corrupt governments while insulting our allies. Under this president, our enemies mock us and our allies realize that the U.S. is no longer a leader on the world stage.

The current president inherited a strong and growing economy and has ridden those coattails to an even stronger economy. Good for him. Unfortunately, the wealth gap between the rich and the rest of the population has grown even larger.

This president has no interest in protecting the environment and providing future generations with a healthy planet. I was living in Ohio when the Cuyahoga River burned and Lake Erie was so polluted that environmentalists believed neither would ever recover. Today they are both clean and beautiful. Every action of his administration has been to diminish or eliminate the actions and rules that have helped to clean and keep clean our waterways and our atmosphere.

His actions have brought us to the brink of another needless and devastating war. Hopefully cooler heads will prevail.

This is a daily happening with the current president, and it continues to get worse.

I do care, and I believe the majority of Americans do care.
