FILE — President Donald Trump speaks at the 2019 House Republican Conference Member Retreat Dinner in Baltimore, Thursday, Sept. 12, 2019.

To the editor — President Donald Trump’s successes cannot be denied: 2.9% growth in the GDP; the lowest unemployment rate in 50 years; rising wages; more companies returning to the states; lower taxes; elimination of costly regulations; oil independence; no more NAFTA, Iran nuclear treaty, and international climate deal; and greater international respect for America.

We have been indoctrinated by glib and pretty presidents who could spin any situation into a believable story. Then along came a plain-speaking businessman who stands up for Americans and himself. He is crass and  hurts the feelings of those who are fragile.

Liberals cannot argue his success. They have investigated him repeatedly but have found no illegal activities. They argue for socialism. He’s a successful capitalist. Their only point of contention is a rather juvenile excuse: they hate him.

We hired Trump to put this country back to work and make us productive. Love him or hate him, that is what he is doing while fighting those who wish to destroy America.
