America could have made better choice

DEAR EDITOR:

The media recently reported that President Donald Trump told the Chinese, “I don’t blame China. After all, who can blame a country for being able to take advantage of another country for the benefits of its citizens?”

What did he say? I asked myself. I felt that statement was an awful disgrace for America. I feel his presidency is a total disaster and has been since day one.

Is this all we can come up with in this country for leaders of government? People like Trump and Hillary Clinton?

She promised when she ran and lost to President Barack Obama that she would never run again. She is consistent at not telling the truth. Likewise with Donald Trump.

Do you think this country can stay on track, having four years with this man in office?

In 1957, the Soviet Union launched a space satellite, Sputnik. In January of 1958, Sputnik’s orbit deteriorated as expected and the spacecraft burned up in the atmosphere.

In 2017, America launched Donald Trump as its president. His orbit now is deteriorating like a falling star, as expected.

America could have done much better in its choices for leadership.
