Letter to the editor: Trump makes the country unsafe

There’s a plan coming into focus, the evidence of which is found in his words, blunt, as well as implied. Donald’s threat of violence, a natural precursor to the actual thing, will boost his re-election odds.

Unfortunately, those opposed may be at risk, regardless of which candidate claims to have won. 

In the past, malcontents have been told they can always go elsewhere. Ironically, as a combat vet familiar with violence, I might feel more comfortable deployed overseas.

Donald enjoys conflict because it is profitable and self-sustaining. He is content with pain inflicted on others, their mothers and pets.

Thanks to Don, the country will become neither free, nor safe. We were, however, dumb enough to let it happen.
