deWeerd letter: Donald Trump

I am Republican in heart. I don’t like Trump or Clinton. I want change from the gridlock, the waste and the political games behind closed doors. So I will begrudgingly follow party line, vote for Trump and hope for the best .... No, I just can’t. A leader of the freest, most powerful, respected country in the world needs to have a set of values, character and a moral compass.

Trump fails in all of these. ... Make America great again. Yes. But not by undermining our core values. Our values are what made us great.
