An Open Letter to the American People

Letters to the Editor: 2020-12-19
Donald J. Trump is not only threatening to impose martial law in many
states, he also threatens violence. Trump is a loser who will never
accept he lost the US presidential election in November to
President-Elect Joe Biden. There was absolutely no factual evidence of
any “voter fraud,” as he repeatedly and wrongly claims. Trump is trying
to destroy all government agencies, advisors and lawyers he has
identified as “enemies.” Further, Trump is illegally and
unconstitutionally using the Oval Office to fundraise to enrich
Trump poses a dire threat to national and world
security, who threatened to start a word war with North Korea. After
his impeachment by the Congress he should have been criminally charged
and convicted of many federal and international crimes, including his
racist immigration policy that authorizes mass arrests and
imprisonments of Latin-American migrants and the forced separation of
thousands of children who were cruelly locked up and drugged in cages.
is shocking and criminal that hundreds of Republican Party members,
together with much corporate media, including Fox News, continue to
parrot and support Trump’s irrational, racist, destructive and
treasonous policies, threats, actions, and lies.
Inauguration Day can’t happen soon enough. Be prepared.
