Letter: Trump's history of lies

| Saturday, Aug. 12, 2017, 9:00 p.m.

I find it amusing when President Trump's supporters whine when people point out Trump's failures and lies.

Trump has conned the American people for the last eight years, starting with his statement that he had proof that President Obama was not born in America. Last year, he finally admitted that Obama was born in America.

During the campaign, he claimed he knew more than all the generals and had a plan to defeat ISIS. Guess what? ISIS is still around, and now he says the generals will take care of ISIS.

He said he would repeal and replace ObamaCare in his first 30 days in office. Seven months later, it's still in place. If he was the great deal maker he claims he is, why is he unable to work out a plan to ensure all Americans get the great health-care plan he promised?

Another lie was that he would release his tax returns after the audit is complete; then he decided not to release them. What is he hiding?

Now, he is writing lies for Donnie Jr. about his dealings with Russian lackeys.

I guess his supporters don't care about real facts, just Trump's alternative facts.

And the biggest lie: “I will build a great wall and get Mexico to pay for it.” To all you Trump supporters, if you believe that, I have a gold mine in my garden that I will sell you for only $1 million. Serious inquiries only.

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.
