There’s nothing pro-life about president’s actions

So the Republican Senate has stuck with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and our irresponsible president. it is dangerous that the Senate has chosen the president over our Constitution. Hopefully we can turn this around at the ballot box.

I find it interesting that many choose this president for his position on abortion. I am almost 80 and remember the ’60s when women had to use dangerous means for an abortion. It is not for us to judge but I really do not want to go back to those days.

If Trump were really “pro life” he would treat folks at the border differently. If he were really “pr life” he would not be taking food from poor children while the ultra rich continue to have their taxes reduced.

To make the Palestinians’ lives even worse, Trump joins Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to take away even more of the Palestinians’s land.

I am surprised Trump has not tried to take down the Statue of Liberty, as he does not stand for anything written there.
