We should all hope for Trump’s success

first_imgRe John Osterlitz’s March 11 letter, “Don’t forget all of Hillary Clinton’s flaws”: I agree wholeheartedly with John’s letter. It’s about time that people started respecting our president. President Trump is doing everything he can to repair our country from the damage done by our previous president and company. He’s doing his best to keep his campaign promises, despite the lack of support from some on the left, right and mainstream media.President Trump loves America and the American people; he is on our side. It blows my mind to think that some American people would choose to elect Hillary Clinton as our president, whose political life has been riddled with one scandal after another and the subsequent cover-up of these scandals. Hillary Clinton’s agenda as president would be to enhance her power and money; Trump’s agenda is to help all Americans live better and safer lives. This “deplorable” feels much safer that President Trump is in office.Whether you like President Trump or not, he’s our president. We should all get behind him to unite this country and make America great again. Some people want President Trump to fail. But remember this: If President Trump fails, we all fail.TONI ANN KINSELLASaratoga SpringsMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsSchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?

The Lakers, who shot 44.6 percent overall and 31.2 percent from the arc, held the Clippers to 12 points in the opening quarter of each half.
