Trump needs to stop playing blame game if he wants respect | Letter

Regarding the Trump letter in the Jan. 26, Valley Record (Democrats, where are your solutions?): I’m not a Democrat but like a lot of other Americans, I really don’t think Trump has done anything positive for our country so far.

All Trump appears to be interested in is overturning laws and regulations that were set in place to protect the average person and our nation’s natural resources.

So if Trump supporters really want him to be highly respected, they need to convince Trump that it’s time for him to jump off of his Tweeter mobile and quit playing the blame game every time he turns around.

And in regard to the Veteran’s Administration, he needs to fire the current VA Secretary and replace him with a combat veteran like Senator Jim Webb who has an outstanding reputation for serving our nation’s military heroes.
