Letter to Editor: Trump creates more divisions than anyone

Editor:

President Trump told the American Legion convention that there was “no division so deep we cannot heal.”

Yet he himself, through the primary season, through the campaign, and with his throw-red-meat-to-the-mob rallies and his wishy-washy behavior after the domestic terrorist attack in Charlottesville has more than anyone to create divisions.

He has assaulted the right to free speech, and to the free practice of religion. His world is him against everyone who doesn’t look like him, isn’t as rich as he is, didn’t go to the same great schools he did, and hasn’t got the same brilliant brain he has.

It’s hard to heal such deep divisions when the healer-in-chief comes along behind us with an axe, chopping away at the bloody scars.
