Betty Lupton: I will not stop ‘carping’

In reference to the opinion piece by Todd Juvinall praising President Trump, he states, “I think Trump is simply used to running a company with employees doing what he says.”

Mr. Juvinall, that is not the way you run a free country. If the president of a country treats its citizens in this way, isn’t it called a dictatorship? Suppressing and bad mouthing the free press is another road to dictatorship and all we are hearing from the White House saying all news is fake news and only Trump speaks the truth. I don’t have room here to list the lies Trump has spouted nor his condemnations of other races and religions.

Mr. Juvinall, you say, and I quote, “Let the man govern and stop this carping every day.”

I will not stop carping, as long as we have a president who goes against the things this country has stood for since its founding.
