In his Aug. 9 letter to the editor, Don Curtis asks, “Is this the America you want?” then launches into a diatribe stating that the president is the worst person ever to occupy the White House because he is racist, ignorant and other derogatory statements. He tries to qualify his animosity and hatred of the president by saying that “everyone with a pulse” has to agree with him.
Well, I have a pulse and here is my answer to his question and the reasons: Yes, I like a president who does not bow down to leaders of other countries, as did his predecessor. Yes, I like a president who is growing our economy at a rate that the previous administration said could never happen again. Yes, I like a president who has other countries pick up more of the costs of defending themselves. Yes, I like a president who, has persuaded N. Korea to stop testing nukes and long-range missiles capable of reaching our country.
Especially, I like a president who treats all citizens fairly. I can’t help but wonder if Curtis is aware that under Trump, America has reached the lowest level of minority unemployment in our history.
Also, I like a president that agrees with a speech presented by Sen. Chuck Schumer, in the 1990s, at Georgetown Law, where he stated that, “Illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple.” Mr. Schumer, I completely agree with you. Sounds like Chuck, at one time, wanted to MAGA.
