Newsday’s postelection editorial, “Trump’s duty now is to lead” [Nov. 9], is mostly about Donald Trump’s shortcomings.

After eight years of President Barack Obama, my list of his shortcomings would be more extensive.

You described Trump as “someone with little awareness of the daunting nuances and dangers of geopolitics.”

Really? That zing fits Obama to a T! The liberal media for more than a year was 10 to 1 against Trump, and he still prevailed. It showed the American people are getting smarter, and the liberal press is losing integrity and credibility.
