To the editor:
I have just learned that our federal representative, Greg Walden, is endorsing Donald Trump for president.
For me, it is a sad day for honor and values in Oregon and America.
How is it possible that Mr. Walden can suspend his value system in order to align with his political club over the wellbeing of our state and country? Or, has his value system shifted to such an extreme during his long tenure in Congress that he has lost perspective on what makes our country great?
Donald Trump has said heinous things about Mexican immigrants and promotes banning Muslims from America. He has said crude things about women and in the name of “saying what he thinks” has offended our war heroes and our allies abroad.
How can dislike of the Democratic Party justify support for a mad man like Trump?
Donald Trump in charge of Americans’ safety? Surely Mr. Walden can’t be serious. Time for him to reconsider that endorsement.
