Letter: Trump knows corruption well

If you are “as sly as a fox,” it is said that you are experienced and cunning to get what you want, sometimes by underhanded means.

Ex-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson described President Donald Trump as a “moron.” Trump knows corruption, which explains his use of every court in the land to prevent any public scrutiny of his tax returns.

Article 1, Section 9, Clause 8: No person holding any office of profit or trust under them shall, without consent of the Congress, accept any present, emolument, office or title, of any kind whatever, from any king, prince or foreign state.

The cooperation to enlist the aid of or arouse suspicion of an opponent by a foreign entity would be a gift or present to him.

Had the commander in chief of the previous administration exhibited or displayed any such behavior as this president has, the “Trumpers” out there would have clamored for a public lynching from the top of the Washington Monument.

Hopefully, Salisbury Post editor Josh Bergeron will have the integrity and the gumption to print this liberal view without omission, lest it be objectionable and offensive to his viewpoint.

Certainly, readers can form their own opinions.
