Letter to the Editor

Liberals should stick to the facts about Trump

Sunday, August 4, 2019

According to the latest conspiracy theory spread by some liberals, Lara Trump is somehow responsible for starting the ďsend her backĒ chant during a recent Trump rally in Greenville, North Carolina. This lie also appeared in a recent letter (to the editor written by Robert Sneitzer on Monday, July 29) published in the Spencer Daily Reporter accusing the president and his family of being racist.

Letís get to the facts ó Lara didnít participate in (let alone start) the chant directed at four Democratic lawmakers with a history of voicing anti-American views. I know this for a fact because I was at the event with her that evening. The claim is a pure fabrication.

Sadly, calling President Trump and his supporters ďracistsĒ is more than just a threadbare liberal smear ó itís the Democratic Partyís favorite pastime and distractionary tactic. We hear this preposterous claim repeated endlessly on the radio, on social media, on cable news and even on late-night comedy shows. For liberals, itís a convenient way to end difficult conversations ó declaring that their opponents are morally unfit gives liberals the ability to avoid accountability for things such as the urban blight for which they are responsible.

The facts, again, demonstrate that the Trump administration, has actually implemented policies that have drastically improved the lives of minorities. In fact, the unemployment rates for Hispanics and blacks have both hit record-lows under President Trumpís watch ó a fact that he notes of frequently and with undisguised pride.

Spreading lies about one of the presidentís family members starting a controversial chant is a disgraceful way of trying to make the false liberal narrative about President Trump and his supporters seem plausible.

Just because someone says something doesnít make it true, though. The sort of defamatory gossip that liberals are spreading about Lara Trump canít be allowed to go unchallenged.
