Two views of Trump’s start as president

Newsday’s editorial says that President Donald Trump is losing the battle to govern [“The tempest at the top,” Feb. 19]. What liberal nonsense.

He has worked on keeping his campaign promises since day one. He’s dealing with liberal Democrats who have delayed putting his Cabinet in place.

Trump has laid out what he wants to get done in the first days of his administration: replace and repeal Obamacare, bring jobs to this country, remove regulations that have prevented job creation, reform taxes and improve choices in education.

This country is more than the liberal states of California and New York. If the Democrats keep this up, wait until the 2018 midterm election and see how many more seats they lose. I believe the majority of this country supports Trump and his agenda.

Not one of the letters from President Donald Trump’s supporters mention how he has lied to the America people before, during and after his election.

Thank goodness for the leaks, because without them we would be completely in the dark [“Trump derides talk of ties to Russia,” News, Feb. 27].

Everything is not hunky-dory in the White House, from the staff to the Russian connection. Let’s wait to see how this plays out.
