Trump ex­celled with econ­omy and for­eign pol­icy

The Morning Call - - Town Square -

Yes, Pres­i­dent Trump’s per­son­al­ity is abra­sive and an­noy­ing. But what is im­por­tant in a pres­i­dent — a pleas­ing per­son­al­ity or ef­fec­tive poli­cies? The U.S. is not at war now and our econ­omy has been ex­cel­lent. No doubt it will re­bound in the near fu­ture.

Some think the pres­i­dent should have han­dled the COVID-19 prob­lem dif­fer­ently. How­dowe know that a Demo­crat as pres­i­dent would have done bet­ter? Hind­sight — 20 / 20; fore­sight — none.

Re­gard­ing for­eign pol­icy, our foes around the world are not ra­tio­nal, peace-lov­ing in­di­vid­u­als. No, they are bul­lies. The only way to re­spond to a bully is to stand up to him; def­i­nitely not to lie down and play dead.

By keep­ing our mil­i­tary strong, we are safer than un­der a pres­i­dent who paci­fies bul­lies. Do you re­mem­ber Prime Min­is­ter Neville Cham­ber­lain of Great Bri­tain in 1938 —“peace for our time”? We know how well that worked out.

I urge you to vote for Pres­i­dent Trump. Bar­bara Heist
