Trump and the press
Any poll or news critical of our “Twitter” president, Donald Trump, is “fake news.” Don’t take my word for it. Ask him. He will likely verify such and tell you it was made up by the “lying” news media.
Trump knows, I believe, that the news media helped elect him by providing millions of dollars in free advertising through airing and printing his outlandish and far-out ramblings.
Yes, it’s the unusual that makes news, and our president certainly qualifies in that category.
Does our nation need change? I believe it does, but not at the radical pace Trump is setting, such as trying to throw out Obamacare with nothing to replace it, building a wall on the Mexican border with no money authorized for such, etc.
I do, however, agree with Trump that if we are going to protect the world against terrorism, other nations should provide more troops and financial support. After all, our nation is already $20 trillion in debt.
Like it or not, Trump is our president and I do believe we should give him a chance. I predict, however, that if he doesn’t shape up in six months, leaders of both major political parties will ask him to resign.
Will he do so? Of course not, unless he senses that he could be impeached. VERNON McDANIEL
