Backing Trump?

Dear Editor,

After the current primary season, the NSA now has complete access to information regarding many domestic terrorists, Islamophobes and white supremacists. They're better known as Trump supporters.

Once again, children were on stage at the GOP debates. Only John Kasich spoke intelligently, showed class, addressed the issues, and stayed above the juvenile banter. And that is why he has no chance of winning the GOP nomination.

All debate long, the other candidates attacked Trump. How did Trump defend himself? He said he had a big penis. How presidential.

Of course, at the end of the evening after pointing out Trump's endless deficiencies, they all said they will support him if he is the Republican nominee. Absolutely pathetic.

Mitt Romney said of Trump that "he creates scapegoats of Muslims and Mexicans immigrants, he calls for the use of torture and for killing the innocent children and family members of terrorists. He cheers assaults on protesters. And he applauds the prospect of twisting the constitution to limit First Amendment freedom of the press."

But again, if he is the nominee, they all will support him. Even Chris Christie has sold his soul to Trump in hopes of securing a position in a Trump administration. He needn't worry, Christie has a job waiting for him as a casino pit boss in Atlantic City.

Sincerely,

Robert LaRosa

Whitestone

I am an ex-New Yorker currently living in California (unfortunately) and have defended Donald Trump’s business achievements against several vicious attacks in major media venues by ignorant — and probably jealous — readers. In one letter to a small New York newspaper (which has not vilified Trump) I pointed out that Ted Cruz’s ignorant attack on “New York values” was personally insulting to me as an ex-New Yorker and that (1) the world would be a better place if all nations embraced those New York values, and (2) those New York values have served me very well in business and my personal life since leaving New York.



Over the years, I had not thought much about Donald Trump as I was busy with my own businesses and career. Now that Mr. Trump has entered the national spotlight in his bid for President, I am suddenly aware of how much Donald Trump and I have in common concerning business and values. Both of us are hard-core entrepreneurs – on a different scale, of course – and as such both of us had had to learn many skills – especially people skills. Any seasoned entrepreneur needs to know how to deal with lawyers, financiers, politicians, labor unions, media and many, many other obstacles to their progress. And they accept business bankruptcies as a normal part of being in business. Anyone who tries to paint Donald Trump as some kind of opportunistic business bankruptor and politically naïve bumpkin who doesn’t know his way around Washington politics, had better start grade school all over again.



Only 2 days ago, I learned of Mr. Trump’s ties to Woodhaven (through his father.) I knew that there was something missing from my admiration for him: WE BOTH HAVE ENTRENCHED WOODHAVEN VALUES IN OUR GENES!



Mine started when I attended St. Thomas the Apostle school. Those New York values were further reinforced when I attended Brooklyn Tech and, later, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy.

One last point which I can really relate to regarding Donald Trump. When that ignoramus Cruz politicized the tragic 9/11 attack on Manhattan and accused him of having New York values during one of the so-called “debates”, Mr. Trump immediately shot back with how he lost several friends in the 9/11 attacks. To me that showed real New York compassion and real New York values.



This is especially meaningful to me because I, too, happened to be in New York on 9/11.



With those Woodhaven and New York values instilled in Donald Trump, in my opinion, he could become of our best Presidents.

I consider myself very fortunate to have grown up in Woodhaven.
