Trump committed serious crimes and should NOT be president again

Dear Editor

What has America come to?

Trump’s conviction in New York should remind us all that no one—including a former president—is above the law.

It should also remind us of the danger that Trump still poses to our democracy.

In the final weeks of the 2016 election, Trump covered up his affair with Stormy Daniels to dupe voters and improve his chances of winning the election. As it turns out, this would only be his first foray into undermining our elections. The New York trial may be over, but Donald Trump still faces three additional indictments and 54 CRIMINAL charges for a litany of crimes, including federal charges for his efforts to incite violence and overturn the will of voters after he knew he’d lost the 2020 election.

This is a pattern. The jury has done their job to hold Trump accountable. Now, it’s time for the American people to do our part and hold him accountable at the ballot box.

Sincerely,

Trump was found guilty—he should be disqualified from office

Dear Editor,

Trump’s conviction in New York reaffirms the principle that no one—not even a former president—is above the law in the United States of America.

The evidence presented to the jury was damning, including numerous falsified documents with Trump’s signature on them. Falsification of business records is a serious crime, and Trump is finally being held accountable just as any other American would.

Trump has often been called a fraudster—and now he has been convicted of just that: fraud, and trying to illegally pull one over on the American people.

Trump’s felony conviction is not merely about illegal hush money payments made 11 days before an election; it is about safeguarding the integrity of our elections. Trump has a clear pattern of lying to the American people and trying to undermine our elections to cling to power. This trial was the first of several—he still faces three additional indictments and 54 criminal charges, including federal charges for inciting a deadly insurrection to overturn the 2020 election.

Donald Trump has shown us who he is: a fraudster who will lie and break the law to cling to power. We must remember that when we go to the ballot box and cast our vote for the next president.

Sincerely,
