    Letters to the Editor — One no Trump on bridging chasm

    Editor — The 2016 Presidential Election is set to be an interesting one to say the least. Running for the Republicans and leading in the polls in the primary election is socialite and “exuberant” TV personality, Donald John Trump. 
    Trump came to fame from his TV series, “The Apprentice,” where he would gather a group of hungry contestants, who would perform numerous business related tasks and out-do the other contestants to ultimately win a prize of a $250,000 contract to run one of Trump’s companies.
    Although Trump is without a doubt a business tycoon, he has proven to know little about politics. He is the living embodiment of the idea that one can get just about anywhere in this country with a large sum of money. 
    From his controversial and bigoted remarks, most would say that he is not fit to be President. But somehow, it looks as if he will be the one to win the Republican primary and move on to the general election with a chance to win the candidacy and be the 45th President of the United States. 
     God help us all.

    About the Contributor
    In the fall of 2019, The Laney Tower rebranded as The Citizen and launched a new website. These stories were ported over from the old Laney Tower website, but byline metadata was lost in the port. However, many of these stories credit the authors in the text of the story. Some articles may also suffer from formatting issues. Future archival efforts may fix these issues.
