America being helped, not ripped apart
This is in reply to Mr. Jack Herrmann’s letter to the editor published Friday, May 10: “Nation being torn apart by Trump.” It makes some not nice and not true statements about our president such as “he’s breaking our great country apart.” We have heard it all before.
Now for the facts and the good news but because I only get 350 words, I can’t cover them all.
The unemployment rate is 3.6 percent. That’s the lowest since 1969 says CNN business reporter Christine Romans. There have been half a million manufacturing jobs created during the Trump administration.
A CNN poll conducted by SSRS April 25-28: 56 percent approve of Trumps handling of the economy up from 48 percent in February.
Key findings concerning annual report to Congress on White House office personnel:
President Trump has donated his salary to a variety of government-related causes including a Veterans’ Affairs caregivers support program, the Small Business Administration’s Emerging Leaders program and a children’s science, technology, engineering and math camp.
Total White House salaries under Trump are $35.8 million versus $60.9 million under Barack Obama.
Thirty-nine fewer staffers dedicated to first lady. Michelle Obama had 25 staffers. Melania Trump has only 10.
Some other key points that are most important to me are Trump continues our battle to defend the unborn and stop the murdering of innocent babies. He continues to defend Christian values. He continues the battle against illegals entering our country and receiving benefits that our own people can’t get.
This doesn’t sound like Trump is tearing our nation apart to me.
