Stop tearing down Trump

When I opened the Nov. 5 newspaper, I was very disappointed to find no mention of President Trump and his wife landing in Japan and speaking to the military at Yokota Air Base. I heard his speech on TV Saturday night and was impressed with his respect and thankfulness for our military men and women and his love of our country. It was a moving speech and well-received by the large crowd there.

It is a shame that the first section of the newspaper was instead full of disparaging articles about our president. Even if he was not your choice, the office of president of the United States should be respected and encouraged. We should be praying for President Trump rather than tearing him down.
