Perplexing Greek-American Trumponia

September 8, 2020

Dear Editor:

Despite the fact that I don’t understand how so many intelligent, educated, and decent Greek-Americans can continue to rave about Donald Trump, the worst, that is to say, the most corrupt and incompetent president in American history, I do appreciate being able to read opposing viewpoints, like Dino Scaros’ often-maddening but always articulate and clever op eds. Sometimes he even gives me food for thought – because I too worry about extremists in my Democratic Party. I worry more, however, about the fact that 180,000 Americans died in the last 6 months thanks to Trump and the mismanagement of the COVID pandemic which led to the grave economic consequences we see now. It is HARD to forget (I don’t know how the Trump people do it) that the mess we are seeing, in our hospitals and in our streets, is all happening on Trump’s watch, largely as a result of his stunning lack of leadership.

To the Editor: I’m rather compelled to praise your newspaper – again.
