About Trump

To the editor:

I have a few caveats. I watch more MSNBC than Fox News. I usually vote for a Democrat.

In 2016 I voted for Hillary, but I can understand why others voted for Trump. Hillary was an opinionated woman with some skeletons in her closet.

During the last four years I have watched with chagrin the following:

• Trump’s abandonment of the Paris Accord

• Trump’s repeated attempts to finance the border wall when Mexico declined to pay

• The sell out of the EPA and the gutting of environmental protections

• Trump’s labeling of my hero John McCain as a loser

• Trump’s distancing from allies like Germany and France

• Trump’s snuggling with Vladimir Putin

• The separation and warehousing of children who crossed the Mexican border

• Trump’s mishandling of the COVID-19 crisis

• The thousands of Trump lies

Any of these is a good reason not to vote for Trump, but then I read an article in The Atlantic by Jeffrey Goldberg. Its title is “Trump: Americans Who Died in War are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers.'” The author documents Donald Trump’s disparaging remarks about the men and women I consider heroes. The article is available online.

My simple conclusion is Donald Trump is morally bankrupt. He deserves zero votes in our next election.
