Letter: American Conscience

Letter to the Editor

If the polls are right that 90 percent of the Republicans are still supporting Trump even though his administration is responsible for separating innocent children from their immigrant parents at our borders, something has gone terribly wrong with a large part of the conscience of America. Every human being came from a mother and a father; we all bleed and breathe alike no matter where we came from or how much money or material things we acquired in life. In my opinion, and from observing the behavior of President Trump, he strikes me as being a selfish and spoiled 72-year-old man who never evolved from a childhood bully. He is like a twisted, lying, crazy, unruly child in a grown-up 72-year-old body. We can’t expect him to have empathy or sympathy for other human beings; it is not in his DNA. And I suspect many of his die-hard followers share the same traits.
