President's actions should concern all

Donald Trump’s failure to criticize Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Un and the Saudi crown prince is troubling. What do these three have in common? They control their judiciaries, suppress their people and voting rights. They criticize those who disagree, and sometimes use violence to quiet them. They also seek to control the press. Does it sound similar to the actions of our president?

The president is not faithful to any party. He verbally attacked members of his party during the primaries and, since being elected, has thrown Republicans under the bus. President Trump’s main concern is President Trump.

Since the founding of this great country, men and women have fought and died to protect the principles now under attack. Did they die in vain?

Regardless of your political affiliation, look ahead to the direction we are now headed. Is this the kind of country we want for future generations? I don’t think so.

If we don’t stand up for the values this country was built on, we certainly will lose them.
