Letter to the editor: All about Trump

| Wednesday, December 12, 2018 10:03 a.m

The United States of America now has three political parties: Republican, Democratic and Trump. 

President Trump claims to be a Republican. Yet, he has not followed, nor portrayed, the basic essence of the GOP. In so many of his visits to stump for GOP candidates, he manages to make his speech about … Trump. In all he does and says, it is always about the loyalty candidates show to … Trump — not about how they will be good for their state or country.

Note the number of government officials he has fired — all who are not in lockstep with his ideas. Also how he continues to try to find ways to stymie the Mueller investigation. And, his absurd insistence on a border wall — will the wall’s base extend to a depth of 20 or more feet to negate tunneling?

Singlehandedly, Trump has disgraced the office of president of the United States.

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.
