Letter to the editor: Trump polluting the swamp

I read with great amusement Rudolph R. Puchan’s letter “Drain the swamp” (April 3, TribLIVE). President Trump is lucky to have supporters who blindly believe him even if what he says is contradictory to the facts.

Puchan’s letter states that Trump’s presidency is rooted in his love of country, God and family. Trump may have a love of country — could that country be Russia? As for his love of God: He has violated almost all of the Ten Commandments. I will give him love of family — he has practiced blatant nepotism like no other recent president.

Job growth under Trump is no more impressive than it was under President Obama. Trump’s securing of the southern border is just symbolic, as most of these immigrants Trump fears come through legal points of entry. We also have record deficits under Trump.

Trump has had more associates convicted then any recent administration. Having him drain the swamp is like having a fox guard the chicken coop.

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.
