Letter: Trump brings more nonsensical actions

Published 12:00 am Sunday, November 24, 2019

Every day brings more nonsensical utterances or actions by President Donald Trump.

Trump reports he may veto a congressional resolution supporting the rights of Chinese pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong because China’s authoritarian dictator is a personal friend and because of trade negotiations with China.

So there we have it: Friendship with an autocrat and money override the defense of people dying in the street because they’re fighting for basic human freedoms.

This is presidential leadership? What a travesty.
