Letter to the editor: Disagreeing with Trump supporters

Inept is my new favorite word. I admit I had to look it up in the dictionary after the UK ambassador said President Trump was “inept.” I can understand why Trump would be upset with that comment. That is Trump in a nutshell. But there is still room in that nutshell for many more adjectives.

What’s most upsetting is that the people cheering and chanting for this president are probably just like him. I’ll bet they all consider themselves good Christians. Many of their ancestors brought slaves to America and stole land from the Native Americans. And, like Trump, they didn’t fight for America. But they own it and if you disagree with them … go back to where you came from.

I was born and raised here, I fought for your freedom, and I disagree with Trump and all of his supporters. If you are a veteran and support Trump, you should be ashamed of yourself and realize that everything you have fought for means nothing.

I’m glad that most of the people in America do not feel the way Trump supporters do.

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.
