Don't let Donald Trump run again


EDITOR’S NOTE: This letter was sent to U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer


Is there nothing the U.S. Senate can do to prevent Donald Trump from running again? And why are media outlets allowed to promote lies about an election? How do we maintain our democracy when those attempting to undermine it are not held accountable?

Projecting that Donald Trump’s running will ensure the Democratic candidate will win should not even be considered. We did not elect representatives to gamble with our democracy.

As we all know, the Senate could have prevented this from happening if the Majority Leader at the time of the second impeachment would have voted guilty. Instead, he chose to avoid alienating supporters of Donald Trump rather than protecting our democracy.   

And now we are observing certain Republican candidates aligning themselves with Donald Trump only because they think it will help them win.

Political calculations by others aided Hitler and the Nazis to take control of Germany.

The Senate must take steps to protect our democracy. Senators should be on record where they stand on the validity of the 2020 presidential election. This is not a partisan issue.

Any disruption created now is nothing compared to the potential damage that may occur in the future if this is not resolved.
