Letter: Trump is face of Republican party

Let’s get one thing straight, President Donald Trump is a Republican. All of his foibles, faults, phobias and falsehoods are Republican, too. Republicans nominated him, campaigned for him and voted for him. He may be every one’s problem, but he is their possession.

When the you-know-what hits the fan, I don’t want to hear, “Oh, those weren’t Republican ideas or policies.” Trump is the face of the Republican party. They bought him. They own him.
