Trump hurts him­self, U.S. with child­ish tweets

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - EDITORIAL PAGE -

I am not a fear­ful per­son, but I find my­self writ­ing this re­quest to my sen­a­tors and rep­re­sen­ta­tive at 4: 30 a. m. This is be­cause my con­cern is so real it is keep­ing me up at night.

I am a U. S. Army vet­eran. I am a re­tired pas­tor. I am a life­long tax­payer. I was a strong Don­ald Trump sup­porter and voted for him. How­ever, I am greatly dis­ap­pointed in his tweet­ing. Not in his us­ing Twit­ter, be­cause I feel he can use it to his ad­van­tage. How­ever, I am dis­cour­aged be­cause of some of his re­cent tweets. They are greatly be­low the dig­nity of the pres­i­dent of the United States.

When run­ning as a can­di­date, Mr. Trump said he would be very pres­i­den­tial. How­ever, he is not. These tweets are child­ish and ridicu­lous. They make it im­pos­si­ble to de­fend him, and make his fol­low­ers look like buf­foons for at­tempt­ing to do so.

I hope our sen­a­tors let him know how much he is hurt­ing the cause of the Amer­i­can peo­ple with his fool­ish tweets.

He has so much po­ten­tial to do so much good for Amer­ica, but he is de­stroy­ing his own im­age. He can tweet of his suc­cesses in of­fice, his plans for Amer­ica, his ac­com­plish­ments, but he has to stop tweet­ing fool­ish at­tacks on in­di­vid­u­als.

I want to con­tinue to sup­port him, but if he keeps this up I will no longer do so.

I want to help him make Amer­ica great again, but I also want to be able to once again sleep at night.
