When will people realize Donald Trump isn’t fit to be president?

There have been many fine letters in The Tribune regarding the shortcomings of the Republican candidate, Donald Trump.

In the past few days, there have been a significant number of voices, many from men and women in the Republican Party, complaining about Trump.

However, in the process of addressing these criticisms, Trump only deepens resentment. His selection of terms and the express manner in which he presents them clearly shows a man that is unfit to serve as the president of the United States.

Unfortunately, the media has, from the very start of the presidential election year, repeatedly written about Trump — his every outrageous statement or downright lie, also gestures and grimaces — often uncritically, seeming to show Trump is worthy of the presidency.

This is done time after time, which brings to mind the troubling fact that a lie, if repeated often enough, will be taken for the truth, especially by those who have not kept up with experts in the political scene.

One hopes the people will finally realize that man — who has no political experience or knowledge and has a very unstable temperament — has no business being considered to be the most powerful leader in the world.
