As for Gregory Ruff’s letter (“Job well done, Mr. President,” Jan. 21), ISIS is not destroyed, though its battlefield presence in Iraq and Syria has been. That was mostly done under President Obama, who cleaned up after President Bush II.
Ditto for the economy comeback, considering President Obama inherited a 2008 recession from President Bush II. We’ll see how well it will now treat the middle and poor classes over the long term under President Trump, and who benefits most.
Border security still seems out to lunch, yet, and Mexican influx was already tapering off before the current president took over.
As for honor and respect, I see more ridicule and insult coming out of this administration. I would rather that our president not be hated, but that seems like an inevitable consequence of dishing out loud and nasty.
