Trump runs US as business

DEAR EDITOR:

Former President Barack Obama took lying about the Iran deal to new heights. First he went through Congress telling them about it when he finished the deal. This is why it was never set in stone as law. He told them this so-called treaty would not allow Iran to access U.S. financial institutions. Then he issued a special license allowing Iran to do exactly that.

He then unsuccessfully pressured U.S. banks to help Iran. He then lied to Congress and to America about what he had done. He admitted in internal emails that these efforts exceeded U.S. obligations under the nuclear deal. He then sent officials, including bank regulators, around the world to urge foreign banks to do business with Iran, but not with the U.S. Then he promised Iran they would get nothing more than a slap on the wrist for violating U.S. sanctions.

With all of this in place, pallets of money were sent to one of our country’s worst enemies at the expense of American taxpayers. Yes, we are on the hook for that money he sent.

This is what happens when voters are mesmerized by politicians who make promises they never keep, lie, cheat Americans and smile the whole time.

The media gave this past president a pass on everything and excused him for anything he did. We now have President Donald Trump, who is like no other politician. He is not predictable. He tells it like it is, making this country great — taking on our problems that politicians have kicked down the road for decades and under them, we have been forgotten. He actually follows the laws that are on the books, and people hate him for this?

How stupid. Whether it is immigration, reform of the VA (which will take time since this has been going on since the Civil War), bringing companies back to this country, unemployment (which is at an all-time low), the stock market and now taking on North Korea — and not paying money to them as previous presidents have done for decades.

You never give money to the enemy for they will use it to kill you in the end.

Trump is running this country as a business, as it should be. Get into the 21st Century.

Remember the word “globalization”? It’s a word Democrats use, it is another word for control of your life and your money — and the way they want you to live. And there is nowhere to go in this country if it comes to America.
