Letter: Chaos hides misdeeds
I agree with Herb Stark’s July 31 letter to the editor titled “Trump’s Camp Run-Amok.”
The huge cost to the taxpayers of these costly trips to Mar-A-Lago and his personal golf courses at other places is staggering. He complained of the previous President golfing occasionally, but his “vacations” are on track to spend as much in one year as President Obama’s administration over eight years.
We taxpayers are paying hugely for vacations for his children, business trips for his sons, etc. I read earlier that he said his family would make money off his presidency, and that is happening. The involvement of Russia and the election hacking is beyond troubling.
Just as worrisome are the little things that are happening behind the scenes to dismantle so many programs and regulations that actually help people.
The circus surrounding the chaos serves to hide the many misdeeds taking place.
If and when the U.S. faces a major crisis, and we are near that point, we are not in a position to respond. The US has lost its leadership position in the world, and we are fast approaching third world status. My fear is that we have already gone past the point of no return.
