Unfit to serve



To the Editor:

Donald Trump is constantly demonstrating that he is unfit to be president. One does not need to look far to find examples.

He denies global warming and encourages fossil fuel production. He prefers to withdraw from hard-won international agreements, such as the Paris emissions accord and the Iran nuclear deal.

He has a penchant for insulting and picking fights with international leaders, risks nuclear war by making threats rather than negotiating, gives tacit approval to white supremacists and has a documented history of disrespect for women.

This president sends out a constant barrage of tweets, few of which reflect a rational thought process. He promotes bad policies and legislation that would benefit the rich at the expense of most Americans.

The list could go on.

An insightful quotation from Groucho Marx nails Trump: “Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.”
