Wrong and scary | Letter

I thought that we were living in a civilized society? Where all people work together and care about each other?

I can’t believe we have a president that is more concerned about himself than caring for the well-being of our country. As many are now saying, we have a president that is a divider rather than a uniter! A president who talks about hatred and violence being acceptable.

That is wrong.

He would rather look at himself in a full-length mirror and tell himself how great he is — instead of trying to help the average Americans.

America, please open up your eyes and ears — remember most people living in the United States left their homeland because of the horrible living conditions and the way they were being treated by their dictators, kings, queens, presidents or whatever they’re called.

It seems to me and millions of other people living in the United States that we are now starting to be treated the same way.

Is this what we want or need?

Now we are being told that the media is “fake news” and not to listen to the news anyway and only listen to what Trump says.

That is wrong and scary.
