Words, actions make Trump most despicable
The Charlottesville, Va., riots and killing opened old wounds and created animosity in our nation. President Donald Trump referenced neo-Nazis and other white supremacist groups on three occasions after the riots, but I focus on neo-Nazis. I remember well the sacrifices during World War II, which ended in 1945. Wives and mothers saw millions of our nation’s finest go to war. Critical goods were rationed. About 400,000 American troops died on foreign soil, most of them fighting German Nazis.
Trump equated white supremacists in Charlottesville to citizens protesting them, but he neglected to call out rioters displaying Nazi flags, Trump signs and Trump caps. He also failed to reject neoNazi support of his administration. Because of his words and actions, I consider Trump as the most despicable American. HERSCHEL HILL, TAYLOR
