Re: ‘A Case for Trump’

By Jim Brady, Cape May

To the Editor:

I am responding to the letter, “A Case for Trump.” The author tells the reader that we live in a republic that gives all citizens representation, not a democracy. Just because we are living in a republic, all citizens do not always live with representation. For example, the factory workers, coal miners and truck drivers who were mentioned in the article did not begin to have any type of representation until the early 1930s when the Wagner Act was passed. To say all citizens had representation because we were a republic is not telling the whole story. I suggest the author go back and read articles and books written on the life of the average factory worker, coal miner and truck driver in the early 20th century. A good start would be “The Jungle” by Upton Sinclair. It is about the meat packing industry in the early 20th century. It gives a good description of what life was like for workers in that early period. 

The letter goes on to say that Joe Biden, Barack Obama and the Democratic Party never accepted Trump as president, but no facts were presented to establish this argument.

Here are a few facts about the Republican Party. When Obama was first elected, the Republican Senate majority leader McConnell stated the top priority was to make sure Obama would be a one-term president, but that didn’t happen. When Trump was elected, the first thing the Republican Party was going to do was repeal Obamacare and replace it with a much bigger and better plan; that didn’t happen. 

The greatest challenge Trump and the Republican Party had to face in his first and only term as president was the pandemic. It can only be described as disaster. By the time he left office over a million Americans had lost their lives. And what did he claim, it was everyone else’s fault. It was never anything he did or said that caused this great tragedy.

Even when he lost the election, he could not accept the outcome. The first time in American history that a defeated president did not end his term with the peaceful transfer of power. 

He sends a mob to the Capital on Jan. 6 to try to stop the peaceful transfer of power but like his presidency, it ends in a great tragedy. Trump sits in the White House watching it on TV and doing nothing to stop it. One of the great stains on American history. The author ends his letter by saying Trump is the only man that can restore American exceptionalism. God help us. Sorry, there is no case for Trump.
