Letters to the Editor
Bully pulpit indeed Donald Trump should not be a candidate for president. He is a loose cannon, and I am not just referring to the immigration issue, which has to be addressed by more logical minds. Trump would try to bully adversaries into submission and could initiate major conflicts. My concern is that he would blunder into a nuclear war with Russia or China.
UNTIL THREE years ago, my wife and I were like a lot of immigrants: Drawn to the U.S. by jobs better than what we could find at home, we saw ourselves as outsiders - temporary resident aliens, as the government called us. Even living in Washington, I followed U.S. politics with detachment, the way you'd watch a football game between two schools in states you've never been to. When our friends back home in Canada asked if we planned to stay, we'd shrug and joke about the weather being better.
