Message for Trump: RESIGN

By Staff | Aug 30, 2017

To the editor:

After the events in Charlottesville and the subsequent response by the president of the United States, I am left to wonder: “how low can he go?” I don’t think we’ll ever know, since every time we think he has hit the foul, stinking bottom of his toxic swamp, he sinks even deeper.

This man is not fit in any way, shape, or form to be president. He is a morally bankrupt, ethically corrupt, intellectually challenged (at best) pathological liar. I think he’s crazy. How many times does he have to show us who he is before we believe it? I know that many good and decent people voted for him because they thought he would be the outsider who would stir things up in Washington so that something would finally get done. It hasn’t worked out because he is not up to the job. He is an empty vessel. He has no direction, no believes, no principles, no ideology, no agenda, nothing. When a president of the United States attempts to absolve the White Supremacists/KKK/Nazis of 100 percent of the blame for the hateful, evil events that took place in Charlottesville, where a young woman lost her life, what else do we need to know?

I know we have problems that affect us all (illegal immigration, jobs, the economy, and more) and that many Americans believed that Trump would solve. These are important, real, and pressing problems that need action and resolution. The country is hurting. He has proved he is incapable of governing. But, even if he was capable, and he did solve our problems, are we to sacrifice our morals and pretend we don’t see this man’s reprehensible conduct, his hateful and divisive speech, his ignorance, his total lack of statesmanship, his lack of character? Would that be our deal with the devil? Not for me, and I believe not for many, many Americans. He is an embarrassment and a very real danger to this country. Resign, Mr. Trump.
