Letter to the Editor: Defending Trump

Dear Editor:

Mr. Mario Guerra needs to wake up and listen to the people. His column, "The Disruptive Views of Donald Trump", shows exactly what's wrong with America today. Politicians are out for themselves.

He says that political life requires "good character". How many politicians have been, or are currently, under investigation for taking bribes, abuse of power, etc.?

Mr. Obama promised a "transparent government" in his first run for the presidency. I think we have found out his version of transparency is: If I don't get what I want, I'll make it an "executive decision" , but the people will know about it.

Yes, we are a nation of immigrants. But most of us were either born here, or came here legally. Donald Trump's problem is with the illegal immigrants, not "Mexicans, Mexican Americans or Latinos". It is the same feeling with most Americans. Even the legal immigrants are upset with the Illegals.

You may not agree with everything Trump says, but at least you know where he stands. He has proved that he is not afraid to upset people by saying what he believes.

Maybe it's time to get rid of all politicians, and put real people in office.
