Trump detractors should look up his record

As a print subscriber to The Herald for many years I’ve, often reluctantly, read the incorrigibly anti-Trump columns of Sid Schwab, your local hater in chief.

However a couple of letters printed recently were too much, laden with vulgarity and hatred against President Trump that’s hard to see in your opinion page and certainly not up to your standards.

In fact, the president loves this country. We’re fortunate that he has the strength of character to struggle on, against those who obviously don’t.

Suggest the critics look up achievements of the first two years, readily available on the ‘net.
