I am amazed at the rhetoric spewed by supporters of Donald Trump [“Trump vows to fix America,” News, July 22]. The drumbeat saying he doesn’t give in to political correctness, or that he’s a billionaire who knows how to run a business, has nothing to do with being qualified to be president.

By demonizing every opponent or perceived enemy, Trump shows why he is unqualified to even run. Money and ego have nothing to do with being a leader of this country. His temperament and his attitude are the worst possible character flaws in a leader.

We need a president who can work with people around the world and someone who can help bring our citizens together, not drive them further apart.

Henry Beyer, Woodmere
