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.
