Thank you President Trump:

… for being the first president since Nixon to not release your tax returns (with the exception of Ford, who released a summary rather than a return).

… for tweeting offensive names about those who disagree with the stand you take.

… for bullying, name-calling and changing your explanation for statements that you have made.

… for revoking Obama-era gun checks for people with mental illness.

… for supporting the NRA’s position by not raising the age limit on buying certain assault- style weapons from 18 to 21, and supporting a proposal to arm teachers.

… for placing the U.S. military on the southern border and authorizing Border Patrol to use tear gas on asylum-seekers, including women and children.

… for sending asylum- seeking parents back to their country of origin while keeping their children in the United States.

… for the decision to place the economy of the United States above the murder and torture by the Saudi Arabian government of a journalist residing in the United States.

… for telling us that money was paid to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal as private transactions.

… for allowing Americans to go without health insurance and doing nothing to lower the price of prescription medicine.

And lastly, thank you, President Trump, for using a government shutdown in an effort to force the appropriation of $5.7 billion for a wall that you said would be paid for by Mexico.

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.
