Letter: Clinton’s record best argument for Trump

The author of the Aug. 3 letter, “Move past political bile, support Clinton,” feels that Clinton “will do the best job of cooling the potentially catastrophic fires of international discord.” Bad idea.

Hillary can’t cool them; she created them. With the reset button we got Russia invading Crimea. With the Arab Spring we got the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. With deposing of Gaddafi we got ISIS in Libya and four dead Americans. There is not a country in the Middle East that is better off with Hillary as Secretary of State.

With Hillary’s unsecured e-mails and severs she has made our national security a joke. With lying to the FBI and not getting admonished, she is above our laws. With Bill as her co-president running the economy and running after interns our future looks bleak.

The Clintons have made millions in the public arena. What have they been selling? The Clintons have had over thirty years of questionable activity from White Water to missing Rose law firm files; to the bimbo eruption; to 800 FBI files; to travel agent firings; to depending on what “is” is; to losing a law license because you lied to a grand jury; to giving speeches to foreign countries that mistreat women; to banks that need favors; and raking in over $21 million in two years in fees.

Donald Trump has his flaws, but he is running for president to serve this country. He will give up a wonderful private life to try to put this country back on track. Trump is an outsider and like the rest of us outside D.C. can see, this country is going in the wrong direction.
