DEAR EDITOR:

President Trump’s enemies started planning his impeachment the day he became president. On Jan. 20, 2017, the Washington Post reported; “The effort to impeach President Donald John Trump is already underway. At the moment the new commander in chief was sworn in, a campaign to build public support for his impeachment went live at Impeach DonaldTrumpNow.org. Their effort is early, strategists admit. But they insist it is not premature.”

As shown above, the Democrats started their efforts to impeach Trump from day one, first it was the emoluments clause, then obstruction of justice with the Comey firing, then Stormy Daniels, collusion, quid pro quo, then bribery, etc. Congresswoman Maxine Waters started shouting “impeach 45” in early 2017.

Democrats and the media have demonstrated a hatred of all Republican presidents. Their hatred of Republican presidents has hurt the country.

It’s the Democrats encouraging our enemies around the world with their “resistance” against Trump. Recently, the week Trump was in Europe talking NATO, the Democrats in Congress started the debate about his impeachment. Can you imagine how encouraged a football team would be seeing the other team in a fist fight with each other? Then you can imagine how encouraged China, Russia, North Korea and Iran is watching the Democrats beat up on President Trump.

How much better off would the United States and the world be if the Democrats and mainstream media were working with president Trump instead of against him? Would China have settled with Trump over tariffs if they did not see the Democrats trying to remove him? Would Russia have stopped their aggression against Ukraine if they thought a united America would act? Would North Korea and Iran have given up on atomic weapons if they thought president Trump had the support of the whole Congress and would act if they didn’t?

And last but not least, as good as the economy is, how much better would it have been if the Democrats had passed the trade agreement with Mexico and Canada last year and supported closing the loopholes in our immigration laws so illegal aliens did not take jobs away from the poorest among us?

I don’t recall a lot of glowing reports in the news from Democrats and the mainstream media about presidents Bush 1 and 2, and Reagan and candidates McCain and Romney. The fact is, it was during president George W. Bush’s term that the condition we attribute to Trump haters (Trump derangement syndrome) was first used to describe the Bush haters (Bush derangement syndrome). The bottom line is hatred of Trump (a Republican president) is nothing new, just an intensified, continuation of hatred of Republicans by the Democrats and the media.
