Letter: Hate for Trump tops love of country

Published 12:00 am Sunday, September 1, 2019

There are a lot of presidents from both parties I have not liked over the years. But I never wished some ill would befall America just so that the president would not get re-elected.

Today, that does not seem to be the case. Rich, leftists from the 1% like bill Maher and others wouldn’t mind seeing the U.S. slip into a recession because it would hurt President Donald Trump’s chances of re-election.

Perhaps we could become embroiled in some military conflict. That would surely seal Trump’s fate.

Nevermind the fact that Maher and company could ride out a recession because of their wealth. Most of us can’t. We don’t have that luxury. We will feel the effects of a recession and they’re not pleasant.

Apparently that doesn’t concern them. Their hatred for Trump could be paid at our expense. One minion said that having a recession now is better than having four more years of Trump chaos. Please define chaos.

Trump inherits cans of issues that have been kicked down the road for decades. These cans have ended up at Trump’s feet and he’s not kicking anymore. Cans such as trade, China, immigration and foreign policy are now being addressed.

Trump has abandoned the play nice, head-in-the-sand approach of the past, and nobody can handle it. There are no easy answers. If there were, they would have been done years ago.

Regardless of Trump’s style or lack thereof, he loves America and is trying to put her first. Unfortunately, others may say they love America, but they hate Trump more.
