Stand Up to Trump

RECEIVED Mon., Jan. 30, 2017

Dear Editor,
    Within two weeks, President Trump has already demonstrated his incompatibility with the Presidency. Questions abound regarding his competence, temperament, and conflicts of interest, but above all, his disregard for the Constitution is a cause for alarm.
    The president has outright ignored the checks and balances that exist between the branches of our government, and an executive branch left unchecked has enormous consequences for all Americans. If you’re still not convinced, consider that the president has elevated Steve Bannon, who has no relevant experience, to the National Security Council, which is a reckless sign of disrespect to the American military, and makes us less safe.
    I call upon all Texans to fulfill your civic duty and demand that Senators Cruz and Cornyn, and all of our representatives, stand up for our state and our nation and call for the president’s removal from office before it is too late.
