Letter: Trump will be a great president

In response to Lori Gabriel-Dane’s letter in the Nov. 11 edition of the Daily Miner that ripped into the “deplorable Republicans” and the election victory of Donald Trump, I have this observation: the letter exhibits the rantings of the uninformed persons who vote with their emotions rather than their heads. It also reflects the sophomoric non-thinking akin to the rabble roaming the streets of Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and other cities around our great nation who are protesting the American processes and way of life without any regard to the law or knowledge of it.

The letter, among other irresponsible rhetoric and acts, similar to those of the racially biased Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, are major contributors for the devastating and pointless riots that have been so publicized by an equally biased media. The difference is, with Donald Trump, what he thinks comes out of his mouth. What Hillary thinks stays in her head and lies come out of her mouth. If this will smooth the non-thinkers’ feathers in some small way, I will say that, “I don’t particularly like some of Donald Trump’s ways, but compared to Hillary’s record I love him.”

I further believe that President-elect Donald Trump will transform into a great president. I have delved into some of his humanitarian acts, which are numerous, and have come to my own conclusion that he has been grossly mischaracterized by the press and the other side. He does not drink other than social toasts, does not smoke marijuana or tobacco, has great regard and empathy for the imperiled unfortunates and is very much an American family man.

His good side has been totally omitted as “bad press” while the less endearing aspects have been bloated beyond the truth in comparison to Hillary’s treasonous malfeasance and crookedness. We have just dodged a major bullet by Hillary Clinton’s loss of a legitimate, all-American election to the presidency of the United States of America.

God bless America and the American people for their wise choice.
