Letter: Who are we as a nation?


Wednesday, October 10, 2018

The 2018 midterms will serve as a vital indicator of who we are as a nation.

President Donald Trump, not surprisingly, has made this election about himself. He sees it as a national referendum on his presidency. I believe he is right to do so. All other issues have receded. There has been little discussion about health care, the environment, infrastructure, education, economic disparity, the chilling of our relationships with allies and the president’s love affair with dictators. The president believes the world is laughing with him when he boasts that his presidency has been among the most successful in American history. Is America ready to jump aboard the Trump delusion train this November?

We see disturbing trends in Trump’s personality. He is willing to mock almost anyone, including his own Justice Department and National Security community. He is tone deaf to the concerns of violence against women and unequal treatment of minorities. He questions freedom of the press and has little regard for telling the truth. Has it come to the point that America will tolerate any deviant behavior in their president?

We will soon know.
