To the editor:
I’ve read so many articles attempting to discourage Donald Trump supporters that it makes me nauseous. Opponents use incidents where Trump lost in a business deal before he became president. Failure is a learning tool we all have used in our lifetime. I have been unable to come up with the right word to describe people who refuse to recognize the accomplishments of Trump, the CEO of the federal government.
Understanding why some of us would rather judge the president for some of his business deals before he became president than his performance as president is puzzling.
I have lived under presidental personas of both parties elected and support of the country was always present, today that is not the case. The opposing party refused to cooperate with the president from his first day in office, and it was publicly announced by the Democratic leadership.
The mainstream media joined forces with opponents and trashed Trump, his family and chosen administration officials in an attempt to not only influence the people, but contribute in the attempt to unseat president Trump.
Take a good look at what is going on with the Democratic debates and you will see why the country is in the perfect political storm. Notice how the lower house cannot agree as a result of electing Democratic freshman with socialist views and anti Semitic behavior. The oath they swore to uphold and defend the Constitution is far removed from their agenda.
The dislike for Trump and the obstructionist behavior of Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi that has carried on for the past several years came to a head on the border bill and put Schumer and Pelosi at odds. Nevertheless, a border bill was passed and has cast the stone that will in all probability further divide the Democrats in a permanent way.
I submit that the Democratic Party is no longer the party of the people. If Trump were to lose the 2020 election, socialism will replace the vacancy left by the Democrats.
All of this could have been avoided if the American people and Washington, D.C., would have followed past presidents in support of the elected CEO of the federal government and considered the country over their alliance to a political party.
