My remarks in this letter are in response to the guest column by the Rev. James E. Daniels ("Obama is the complete opposite of Trump," The Daily News, Sept. 26), which I appreciate and agree with for the most part. Daniels is to be commended for his courage, conviction and passion expressed in this column.
He mentions some very important points expressed with raw honesty, courage and colorful language.
I commend him for calling President Trump and “the majority party” on their failings, i.e. “the moral decay of our democracy in an epic proportion.” An example provided by him of “President Trump and his followers continuing the attempt to tear down the legacy of Obama,” is the destruction of the Affordable Care Act.
His remarks about President Obama and the topic of “race” are right on target. One has only to look at Trump’s years of trying to deny Obama’s legitimacy!
And in summary, he says, “President Obama exemplified moral character and intelligence” … so much in contrast with the incompetency and moral bankruptcy of the Trump administration.
Rev. Daniels, thank you for sharing your passionate commentary. You do know that you have an audience in the community supportive of these views.
