To the editor — I believe many practicing Christians and people of all faiths fear that in their frustration with Washington, some people have convinced themselves President Donald Trump has the ability to govern this country and deal with other nations effectively.

We have been a leader in the free world for many years and regarded with respect by our allies. This administration has eroded the trust of many other nations. We must work to return to a position of leadership and respect.

We can no longer be a nationalist nation. Our citizens are comprised of all races and faiths. We must work with other nations on reversing climate change, preserving the Earth's natural resources and ending the proliferation of nuclear weapons if we are to survive.

No president has been perfect. It's not just a matter of disagreeing with Trump's erratic and behavior and ill-conceived policies. The egregious things he continues to do — lying, disregarding facts and realities presented to him by experts in their fields and circumventing the law — have been made obvious by a free press.

In one campaign speech Trump asked (and I quote), "What in the hell have you got to lose?"

Well, President Trump, we have a lot to lose and have already done so.
