Letter: Democrat lies about Trump

To the Editor:

Democrats are telling lies about President Donald Trump. They claim he did not help Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria. The real problem is the incompetent corrupt Democrat administration in Puerto Rico. They were deeply in debt and declared bankruptcy.

The Mayor of San Juan stood in front of big boxes of supplies from America while complaining about not getting supplies. The problem was union workers would not distribute them to the people. They recently discovered a very large area of bottled water that had not been distributed. The mayor has been arrested for corruption. This is typical of a Democrat-run city or state.

Democrats falsely claim Trump is in collusion with and controlled by Russian Premier Putin. They forget the much proclaimed Obama/Hillary Russian reset, Obama telling Russia he will have more leeway after the election, Obama’s red line in Syria he ignored, the unchecked Russian invasion in the Ukraine, and giving 20 percent of our uranium to Russia. Trump sent missiles into Syria and gave weapons to the Ukrainians in defiance of Russia.

Contrary to Democrat lies, Trump’s travel ban was not a Muslim ban and had nothing to do with race. It was the same as President Obama’s and for the same terrorist-ridden countries. Most Muslim countries were not included. Muslims include different races, including white. Liberals who can’t intelligently defend their position accuse their opponents of racism.

The Constitution gives naturalization authority to Congress, not the courts. Congress in 8 U.S. Code par. 1182f gave it to the president. SCOTUS agreed with Trump. Claims that a Republican Court ruled in favor of the ban are ridiculous because it is not up to the court, and the Republican appointees follow the Constitution, not a political party.

In November, vote American, not Democrat.
