Trump is arrogant president


To the editor:

The definition of arrogance is “Having or revealing an exaggerated sense of one's own importance or ability. Someone who is full of self worth or self importance and who tells or shows that they have a feeling of superiority over others.”

It seems this is the character of our president. With all his rants and tweets, one would suspect a sense of insecurity. When challenged, he becomes bullish and deceitful with his attitude which is rather pervasive and consistent. He accuses the “evil media” of being fake when, in fact, his comments become fake without knowing many of the facts. The uncivilized behavior of name-calling those who disagree with him is nothing but shameful and childish. This is simply a poor example for our young folks.

Members of his administration are constantly changing, either being fired or quitting. Manafort, Cohen, Flynn and Papadopoulos drank the Trump Kool-Aid and it eventually caught up with them. Kellyanne Conway, Sarah Sanders and some others continue to drink.

If this is “making America great again,” we are in deep trouble. As Meghan McCain said at her father's funeral, “America has always been great.”

Trump's presidency is a disgrace to the office of the president. I cannot understand how some supporters can condone this type of leadership behavior. Let's face the fact: one of the reasons Trump got elected is that some could simply not vote for Hillary.

Let's hope the next election will produce some well-respected candidates from all parties. John Kasich and Amy Klobuchar would be a good start.
