Letter: ‘Give President Trump some credit’

Home Opinion Letter: ‘Give President Trump some credit’

To the Editor:

 I am writing this letter in response to the article written by Mr. Ron Huff entitled, “We Don’t Need This Kind of Leader,” which appeared in the April 8 issue of The News-Journal.

Everyone is entitled to his/her opinions. However, I don’t understand why people like you and most others in the news media can never give credit where credit is due.

President Trump has done some very good things for our country and its people. He is trying very hard to fulfill the promises he made while campaigning for the presidency. He is doing a good job combating the serious crisis we are now facing. Yet, hardly anyone in the news media (including you) focuses on the positive things he has accomplished while in office or gives him credit for them. Instead, it seems as if the social media and a majority of all the Democrats are focused on not only destroying the President, but our Constitution and our country in the process.

The entire impeachment fiasco, instigated and led by Democrats, was a sham and a farce, not to mention a total waste of taxpayer dollars. They should be ashamed of what they have done and how they have destroyed the integrity of the Democratic Party. Just because some people despise the President, his personality, his way of governing, and even the way he parts his hair, is no excuse for how he has been treated by the news media and the radical leftwing Democrats. No one should be treated to such hatred as he has. To call someone a liar when all the facts are not known or proved is a disgrace and unwarranted.

The President is doing a darn good job, considering who he has to work with and what he has to put up with in Washington, D.C. Just thing how great this country really could be if everyone respected each other regardless of their differences and if everyone would work together for the common good of the people.

I think that you should stick to writing about all the wonderful experiences you have with your family and friends and omit your opinionated political garbage.

If you are such an expert on leadership qualities, especially I the political arena, perhaps you will consider running for mayor of Frog Holler one day!

Seriously, it would be refreshing and uplifting to read articles written without all the propaganda, negative and hateful political rhetoric, the lies and the biased opinions perpetrated by the social media. This global pandemic has taken away a lot of our freedoms right now—freedom we often take for granted. If we learn anything at all from this crisis, we should learn to love and respect others whether we like them or agree with them or not.

We should thank God every day for the many blessings we still have, lest they too, should suddenly be taken from us.

So, wise up and be enlightened, o great philosopher of Frog Holler and know that the experts who think they know everything, don’t always get it right!
