Doesn’t care about Trump ‘gossip’

In response to Fred Cummings letter (Dec. 6), I too am a born and raised New Yorker from the mid-Hudson Valley. I too am a little older than President Trump and often saw

his name in the media. A good portion was in the society news, which is personal

and, not unlike current and past celebrity news, very salacious. 

Gossip is titillating, but not important. Mr. Cummings makes sweeping comments about the mafia and bankruptcies which continue the gossip theme. The high-dollar deals and

flamboyancy of President Trump have kept him in the eye of the media for many

years along with many of his contemporaries such as Carl Icahn, Warren Buffett

and the Koch brothers, to name a few. 

I ask, so what? It makes good reading, but doesn’t affect the average person. Mr. Cummings states President Trump has told 1,100 lies, but cites nothing to turn this gossip into fact. As to his reference to President Obama, I can cite a fact. “If you want to keep your doctor, you can keep your doctor,” was a lie. The fact is that under Obamacare you could not keep your doctor. 

President Trump promised to restore the economy and he has done so. Unemployment is at an all time low of 5.3% and the stock market is at an all time high of 28,000. Those are facts. I suggest we ignore the gossip and go with the

facts. If you want the economy to continue to thrive, VOTE FOR TRUMP.
