Trump a hero to his peo­ple

Yorkshire Post - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

From: Wil­liam Rees, Bor­ough­bridge.

ANDREW Vine (The York­shire Post, De­cem­ber 3) ac­cuses Boris John­son of adopt­ing Trum­p­like tac­tics in the cur­rent Gen­eral Elec­tion cam­paign and he pro­duces the usual litany of Trump crit­i­cisms (“down­right lies, half-truths, fake news and dirty tricks”), hop­ing to jus­tify his case.

Don­ald Trump is hated by the Washington elite be­cause he dis­rupted their dom­i­na­tion of Amer­i­can pol­i­tics by ap­peal­ing over their heads to or­di­nary peo­ple, for whom, since the elec­tion, he has de­liv­ered most of his prom­ises, the most im­por­tant be­ing a vi­brant econ­omy.

Re­cent opin­ion polls have shown that Mr Trump’s sup­port among the black com­mu­nity in Amer­ica is ris­ing rapidly, for ex­am­ple, be­cause they can see their stan­dard of liv­ing ris­ing un­der their cur­rent pres­i­dent.

Mean­while the Amer­i­can House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives, which is cur­rently con­trolled by an outof-touch Demo­cratic Party, is try­ing to im­peach the pres­i­dent on spu­ri­ous charges that they will, I pre­dict, pay dearly for at the next elec­tion.

If Mr Vine wants to write about dirty tricks and fake news he should be look­ing at the tac­tics of the Demo­cratic Party.
