Trump’s actions threaten all Americans

In response to the Feb. 14 letter (“Demonizing President Trump, family, supporters”), the issue is not whether Trump is hated, but whether he is committed to protecting the well-being of the American people.

Trump has appointed crony Cabinet members from banking, industry or his donor base who are corrupt and/or completely inexperienced in governance or public service, and thus unfit for office. They are instead dedicated to reducing protections for our citizens from environmental contamination, wage theft, mortgage fraud, discrimination, poverty and nuclear catastrophe.

These actions threaten all of us, whether we have a billion dollars and a bunker or not, and make our personal feelings about Trump’s brutality towards those weaker than him and his disdain for our democratic institutions beside the point.
