Letter to the editor: Proud of Trump’s success

To answer Glenn R. Plummer’s letter “Ashamed of Trump’s ‘success’,” (Aug. 20, TribLIVE): Maybe you need to look elsewhere for your answers instead of MSNBC, CNN and fake news.

I’m sure most people won’t take any of the tax breaks President Trump and the Republican party have given (all “no” votes by the Dems). I’m sure most people want to send more of their money overseas to pay for other countries, climate change and NATO (not paying fair share), and maybe billions more to Iran so they can kill millions more people.

I’m sure most people would give up more of their paychecks to pay for all the illegal immigrants coming into this country. Yes, Trump is trying to save our money by stopping this. Millions are spent on illegal drugs coming through our lax border; Trump, with his wall, would help many Americans. All “no” votes by Dems.

I’m sure most people would rather have a GDP of under 2 percent than the 4.1 percent under Trump. I’m sure most people would rather have more blacks, Hispanics and women out of work than to have them finding jobs thanks to Trump and his deregulation policy.

I’m sure most people would rather have their heart operated on by a plumber or dentist because they are perfect than by the best heart surgeon who has many faults and sins but wants to save their lives.

I am an ex-Democrat who says, “If I talk about others’ faults, I won’t use up so much paper telling all of my own.”

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
