Letter to the editor: America’s mental problem is Trump

Finally, President Trump has said something I agree with: America has a mental problem. It is Trump himself and those who continue to support him despite all his lies and possibly treasonous activities.

No president has slept with the enemy and said the hell with our allies more than Trump. No president has spewed more hate, racism and narcissistic insults than Trump. He threatens and berates those who oppose him. His political rallies have become more like wrestling events.

Trump has been at war with the truth since taking office. Only the Lord above could convince me that Trump did not collude with Vladimir Putin and Russia. And one thing is for sure: It was proven that Russia hacked our election. So why does Trump continue to praise and endorse Russia and Putin?

Yet, people continue to support him. I find that sad for our country and its future. Trump says that whether you like him or hate him, you have no choice but to vote for him. What a joke. I could wake up the day after the 2020 election and find that only one American voted against Trump. And I’d be proud to know that I was that one American.

I didn’t like Trump before he was president, and wouldn’t have voted for him if he was a Democrat. I am proud to be one of the ones he says hates him. And he is the first president in my time that absolutely made me hate him.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com 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.
