Letter to the editor: Trump best choice

| Thursday, Dec. 28, 2017, 8:55 p.m.

Some recent letter-writers attack President Trump as crude, misogynistic, foolish, unsophisticated and inconsistent. Congresswoman Maxine Waters wants to “take out Trump tonight.”

But others see him as outspoken, open, honest, flexible and patriotic — a good family man and businessman.

Perhaps the “dump Trump” politicians and media forget that in 2016, our only other choice was a continuation of the failing economic and military policies of President Obama and the entrenched party of Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. Enough American voters preferred conservative policies that produce more jobs, safer neighborhoods, a stronger military, more opportunities and a smaller, less intrusive government, so they elected Trump.

Let's not let the extremists, either left or right, set the agenda for our political future for a better, safer, happier America.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
