A Letter to President Trump

Dear Mr. President,

I see that you have begun your campaign for the 2020 election. I must say that this is overly hasty, since so far you have accomplished nothing noteworthy in your administration except damaging our government, our people, our environment. The crowds still cheering for you are not cheering for what you’ve done, but cheering because they want to succumb to totalitarianism. Remember how those German crowds cheered Hitler? So many Germans – enough to put him office – thought he was the greatest and couldn’t see that they were cheering the destruction of their country. Indeed, they were not only cheering, they were making it happen, every Sieg Heil! putting them a step closer to the horrible end.

You claim that you are “the least anti-Semitic person” in the world? If the destruction of six million Jews by the Third Reich weren’t the world’s greatest tragedy, your comments would be laughable. Time and time again you’ve had an opportunity to reject anti-Semitism, to say that it is absolutely wrong, to say that it is an abomination, to say that it is contrary to every worthy ideal of America, and time and time again you fail to do so. We know why. It’s because the white supremacists who make up so much of your cheering crowds wouldn’t stand for it. It’s because Steve Bannon and Steve Miller wouldn’t stand for it.

How come you have no guts to the do the right, Mr. President?

If I were you, I’d suspend my campaign for 2020 immediately and take time to think about the damage I was presently doing to our great country and to humanity.

Yours in great sorrow,

Bruce J. Berger
