Letter: When there is little good to report

(Susan Walsh | AP file photo) President Donald Trump shakes hands with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the border village of Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone, South Korea, on June 30, 2019.

I feel I must respond to Kathy Broadhead’s Oct. 11 letter to the editor. She wants to know why The Tribune prints so many articles against the Republican Party and the president.

Maybe the articles are not picking one side or the other. Maybe they are just telling the truth. There is very little good to report on when it comes to the president.

Yes, I was not happy when Donald Trump was elected, but I wanted to at least give him a chance. However, he instantly showed himself to be nothing but a liar, a con man, a cheat and a crook. He cares nothing about me or the normal people, only the rich and powerful.

The Republican Party has become the party of “Do as I say, not as I do” and “If you aren’t with us, you are against us.” It’s ironic, because what they stand for actually makes sense, on paper. However, their actions speak much louder than words.

Although the president knew in January how horrid the coronavirus was, he chose to ignore and downplay the dangers. So don’t tell me how he worked so diligently to combat it.

You align yourself with the president, freedom and our rights, but it has come to the point where our rights are whatever the White House says our rights are. Our rights also allow for the freedom of peaceful demonstration without being labeled as “left-wing radicals.”

Truth has gone out the window with Trump’s consistent, daily lying, and telling us the truth is only what he says it is. He has no problem denying that he said something, even when it is all on tape.

It’s time for the president and Congress to start working for the common man and legislating for the benefit of the majority of the people, not just the rich and powerful.
