Letter: In support of Trump

I want my Democrat friends to just understand I don’t put you or what you believe in down or mean any disrespect. But all I do is look at cold, hard facts.

Ninety-nine percent of the energy put out by the Democrat Party is actually to put down our president and administration only. They boycott, sit silent and say or do nothing to help our country. They are going so far as to block any progress being made. If it is not the president’s hair or weight or her shoes or dress or anything at all to degrade them, they are just looking only for more trash to use. Not doing one thing to earn their pay or our respect.

The only Russian collusion was done by the Democrat Party. But they tried to throw the blame on our president and administration. If you or anyone is proud of that party, I am sure you have a very good reason to. For the life of me, I do not see what.

Nancy Pelosi, the San Francisco Democrat, is the ninth wealthiest member of Congress, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. She has led House Democrats for more than 12 years and previously served as House Democratic whip. Have you ever really listened to her? And we paid her a fortune to make our country be what? A personal fortune maker only. She has never been productive working for our country. There are many Democrats who are very much like her leading that party.

I care for my country, my president and I will not disrespect all the good he has done and is still doing for me and our nation.

Editor: There’s plenty of wealth on both sides of the political aisle in Congress. OpenSecrets.org, an arm of the Center for Responsive Politics, reported last October:

“In 2014 and 2015, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) was again the wealthiest member of Congress. Issa, who made his fortune in the car alarm business, had an estimated net worth of about $330 million in 2015.

“At least six other lawmakers had an estimated net worth in excess of $100 million as well. That included House Democrats Jared Polis of Colorado ($314 million), John Delaney of Maryland ($233 million) and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California ($101 million) as well as House Republicans Dave Trott of Michigan ($177 million) and Vernon Buchanan of Florida ($116 million).”
