Letter to the editor: Trump is no savior

D.A. Scandrol’s letter “Trump as messiah” was the most sacrilegious drivel I’ve read in 84 years of living. To admire and support President Trump is one thing; but to even remotely compare him to Christ is utterly ridiculous.

Trump came to make America great again. America was already great, only slipping because of politicians not trying to come together. Trump has added to the chasm.

Jesus came as a teacher with authority; Trump seeks to be a dictator.

Trump came to flaunt the Constitution.

Trump attempted to be a Caesar and a Pilate.

Trump offended the political elite because he wants to be the sole political elite.

Trump’s popularity is growing. Obviously, the writer does not read nor hear about the percentage who do not believe Trump is doing well.

Trump resurrected the economy. Our economy is an ebb-and-flow entity. Trump happened along at the right time.

Trump has only made the political “swamp” harder to navigate.

Trump is condemned because of his mouth, insulting and slandering all who disagree with him.

Trump was elected to save America from itself. Who is going to save America from Trump?

Jesus at 12 stunned the elders of the temple. Trump at 18 eluded serving his country.

Trump is rejected by many because he is slanderous, a liar and rejects all who disagree with or criticize him — plus his stance on gun control, his attitude toward blacks and Latinos, and his “stealing” money from other sources to build his wall.

Trump is no savior; he’s become a pariah.

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.
