Letter to the Editor: Credit to Trump

Dear Editor:

I read the New York Times’ op-ed “Just Let Jim Acosta Do His Job.” I wonder if the NY Times has ever printed anything good about President Trump. Anything?

I, too, wish he would tone down his replies. He was elected by the American people to be President, but the liberals can’t accept it. The Democrats in Congress have done nothing but try to take him down. The same regarding Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh.

It didn’t bother them that Clinton lied to Congress but it is different if you’re a Democrat. ERic Holder lied and sent over 2,000 AK-47 rifles to the drug cartels in Mexico. One of the guns killed one of our Border Patrol officers. Nothing was done to him; he’s out now telling people to attack Republicans, as is Maxine Waters -- nothing done there either.

I firmly believe that if every politician who has lied were put out of office, we would have to have special elections to fill a major part of Congress. I recall President Obama saying several times “you can keep your doctor” and “it won’t cost you a dime more for your healthcare.” If the Democrats have anything they wish to accomplish, I wish they would share it with us, other than take President Trump down.

These are some of the things Trump has done:

  • He has made headway with North Korea, trying to get them to take down their nuclear missiles and still working on it. Don’t recall Bush, Obama or Clinton trying to do this.

  • Trump has cut taxes so families with children get a greater deduction and Nancy Pelosi called it “crumbs” and wants the tax cuts back.

  • Does it bother you that more African Americans, more Hispanics and others are now working and wages increased?

  • Fewer are on food stamps.

  • Fewer are on welfare.

  • Trump has sent more MS13 gang members out of the U.S.

  • Trump is trying to get the border fence.

  • The stock market is up.

  • Jobs are coming back to the U.S.

The most surprising thing is Trump is trying to do the things on which he ran. That’s most amazing and highly unusual.

So maybe the left or socialists can sit back and relax for a couple of years, or six years, as those of us desire. But give President Trump credit for his accomplishments.
