GOP, stop un­der­min­ing Trump

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - MARVIN L. HOOVIS Cen­ter­ville, Mas­sachusetts

In 2016, Pres­i­dent Trump helped Repub­li­cans get House and Se­nate ma­jori­ties. In 2018, he helped them keep the Se­nate ma­jor­ity. Yet the splin­ter groups of Repub­li­cans did not keep their prom­ises to re­peal and re­place Oba­macare. They have not fully sup­ported Mr. Trump’s ap­pro­pri­ate with­drawals from the flawed Paris cli­mate agree­ment and the Iran nuclear deal, nei­ther of which was passed by the Se­nate.

Ev­ery crit­i­cism of Mr. Trump by the Democrats is ac­cepted as fact by these same anti-Trump Repub­li­cans.

Mr. Trump’s re­cent tweets were not racist, nor did they con­tain any spe­cific men­tion of race or color. They were simply direct crit­i­cisms of “the Squad” mem­bers’ own words. These four rep­re­sen­ta­tives have been anti-Semitic and have used ex­tremely foul lan­guage.

Many Repub­li­can sup­port­ers are an­gry about the dis­loy­alty from the GOP. Some peo­ple have even re­sponded to House, Se­nate and other groups’ re­quests for do­na­tions by telling them, “When you sup­port Pres­i­dent Trump and the ma­jor­ity of Repub­li­cans, then I will again con­trib­ute.”

Why do these so-called Repub­li­cans do a dis­ser­vice to their con­stituents and our coun­try by un­der­min­ing the pres­i­dent?
