Plenty of reasons Trump shouldn't be re-elected

There are many reasons not to re-elect Donald Trump in 2020. Here are some of them:

• Good decision maker. This is his third wife. In October 1993, his then-girlfriend gave birth to a daughter. Three months later he decided to marry her. The “Access Hollywood” tape came out several months before the election in 2016. Is this how a president treats a woman? Two girlfriends with dubious backgrounds acknowledged that Trump tried to buy them off for services rendered.

• Military background. Trump graduated from a military high school. He had five deferments during the Vietnam War, the last one for a heel spur that he couldn’t remember what foot it was on.

• Business. Trump has experienced business failures in apparel, food and — who could forget? — his Trump University. On this one he had to repay students a court-ordered $25 million. Trump also has a bad reputation when dealing with contractors in New York City and other cities who’ve done work to his properties.

• Politics. Trump gives his political opponents, some in his own party, childish nicknames if they don’t agree with him. He appoints people with little or no experience to Cabinet positions and other high offices in the government. Trump’s administration has become a revolving door, even among the qualified people. He keeps some of them on a temporary basis so he doesn’t have to have the U.S. Senate approve them. He alienates our long-time allies and embraces tyrants and despots.

Donald J. Trump., the 45th president of the United States, is not an honorable man.
