Letter to the Editor

Who got the money?

Tuesday, August 22, 2017

The weekly anti-Trump writer of letters to the editor seems to search out with great vigor everything President Trump has to say. Yet, whatever President Trump has to say, makes him very upset. It reminds you of the guy who was pounding his head against the wall. When asked “why do you do that?” he respond “because it feels so good when I stop.”

I may not agree with everything President Trump says, but I do appreciate a president who means what he says and says what he means. I wish more politicians would do that rather than saying one thing and then doing another. I generally support President Trump’s policies and believe he is placing the United States of America on a positive path to create more jobs, improve the economy and protect us from international threats.

The Democrats have spent a year trying to prove President Trump colluded with Vladimir Putin. So far they have not been able to come up with any evidence. The President’s actions do not have the appearance of anyone who is soft on Putin. The special council has hired mostly high-power attorneys who donate to the Democratic Party. It has been said any good prosecutor — given the power of a Grand Jury — can “indict a ham sandwich.”

When the Clintons left the White House they complained they were broke after many years in public service. Yet, a few years later, they have millions of dollars. Did they make a very wise investment? No, once Hillary became Secretary of State — and then was almost guaranteed to be the President of the United States — the speaking fees started rolling in. Who else do you know that can command a $500,000 speaker’s fee? How much of the Clinton Foundation funds were used for good purposes and how much was used to benefit the Clintons and their friends? Once Hillary Clinton lost the election the speaking fees magically stopped. How refreshing it is to have a president that is not always searching for more money. President Trump has his own money.
