Trump would jail dissenters
I am a naturalized U.S. citizen who was born and raised in Shanghai. It was an honor for me to cast my vote for president in the last election.
A nominee for the forthcoming election brings forth concerns about our democracy and how it works. I am familiar with Donald Trump’s pronouncements and manner and wonder how he could ever be a candidate for president. When I came to America, I assumed that the manner of politicians would show their love for the country and all its people. If he were elected, what would the world think of us? This is democracy in action?
In writing this letter, I feel afraid that if Mr. Trump is elected president, he might put me in jail for expressing my views. In the second debate, he threatened to put Hillary Clinton in jail (“Trump’s scorched earth,” Oct. 10). His words remind me of Mao’s time in China.
I will vote for Hillary Clinton.
