To the Editor:
Recently, we watched Donald Trump announce that the reason why he pursued the matter of our president’s birth certificate for so many years was to actually “force” our president to produce such certificate. So important was this matter to Mr. Trump that he even continued fighting for that certificate years after the certificate was actually produced.
Unfortunately, what he actually did was undermine the legitimacy of the president of the United States and the president’s ability to implement policies to better the lives of middle-class Americans such as further energizing our economy, improving Obamacare, family leave, minimum wage, etc.
Any person who calls something true in the face of clear evidence that it is not is either a liar or unable to deal with reality – in either case not good traits for a president.
