Letter: Clinton has experience to lead

You cannot believe all the misinformation, innuendos and lies that Donald Trump is perpetrating about Hillary Clinton. He would have you believe that the U.S. is in imminent danger of being attacked and our economy is going down the tubes.

In fact, under President Barack Obama over 10 million private-sector jobs have been added in the longest run of uninterrupted job growth in history. Home prices are rising. The minimum wage is up. The Dow Jones is near an all time record high. Unemployment is down under 6 percent.

In all honesty, if you are a factory worker, store clerk, woman, teacher, minority, union worker, immigrant, poor or middle class, elderly, or are of the working class, why would you not support Clinton? She has the experience as First Lady of Arkansas and the U.S., senator of New York, and Secretary of State. What experience does Trump have? I am appealing to all the undecided voters. Listen to what Trump is saying.
