Letter: Trump is not to blame for everything that’s wrong


Why is the president being blamed for everything going wrong in our country right now?

The real cause is the Republican voters who elected Trump and then stabbed him in the back by voting to give Democrats control of the House. Now we face two more years of stalemate in our government.

The Democrats hate Trump for winning the election, but the real hatred should be aimed at Clinton for losing the election.

Ten years ago, Obama won the election and we saw little or no hatred toward him by the Republicans. He had his chances to make America great again but as it turned out, his biggest achievement was to divide this country politically and racially more than at any other time in our history.

So why can’t we give Trump the same opportunity?

He has accomplished more in the past two years then our past four presidents have in the last 28 years.

If the people in Congress, just for a little while, forget who they are politically and act like the people who the voters thought they were when elected, to fix our nation, we would all be better off.

Since the Watergate fiasco, this country has been on a downward slide fueled by hatred and animosity. It is time for the Democrats to start acting like grownups instead of spoiled whining brats who throw temper tantrums every time they don’t get what they want.

The U.S.A. is the people’s country; it does not belong to the politicians and Congress is responsible for our protection, prosperity and standing in the world.

One final thought: President Trump made one huge mistake in shutting down our government. He should have left the government open and shut down Congress, without pay and keep it shut until our greedy, hateful and power hungry leaders come to their senses and start giving our true legal citizens, not illegal immigrants,what they want and deserve: peace, prosperity, health and respect from all nations.
