Trump would jail dis­senters

Baltimore Sun - - FROM PAGE ONDE - Qiyin Emurian, Bal­ti­more

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.
