Letter: Tearing our country apart

Cokie and Stephen Roberts (“The disgrace belongs to Trump,” Feb. 10) hit the nail on the head.

It is more than disgraceful the way President Trump continues to denigrate the press, FBI, domestic violence victims, etc. And the heads of all of the agencies appointed by Trump are tearing apart the entire structure of this country. Trying to disturb the Mueller investigation looking into the known tampering by Russia of the 2016 election should be a crime.

Many of his behaviors mimic those of other authoritarian leaders and are so troubling to many of us.

Yes, the entire Trump administration is more than a disgrace, and those who are supporting him in these disgraceful endeavors are also a disgrace. I only hope it can be stopped and that it is not too late to rescue the USA from its grasp.
