Letter: President Trump deserves the support of the people

Every day I am just amazed at the name calling and non-support for our president. I did not care for Obama but did not call names or make vulgar statements about him. I think it’s like not liking your pilot so you don’t care if the plane goes down. Makes no sense to me at all.

Mr. Trump is not a polished politician like we have always had, He does not speak as one. He is a businessman, a very successful one. He has done wonders for our country if you just pull your head out of the sand and look. We are all bringing home more money. Anyone can find a job and most of the world knows they can no longer walk over us.

Dang, folks, look what he could do with the support of the people. Trump 2020.
