Deseret News
Letter to the Editor

At this time, our country is greatly in need of a far-reaching and respectful international platform. Instead, our president makes clear his contempt for the people of El Salvador, Haiti and the African nations. I have done medical work in El Salvador, Haiti and West Africa, and I can assure you that the folks who reside there are fine, decent people.

In contrast, Trump feels that the people of Norway, whose citizens are conveniently more like him in appearance, should be more welcome on our shores. I would like to point out that disdain for divergent racial and religious groups within our country is not new behavior for our president. President Trump’s demonstrated intolerance of our racial and religious diversity should make us question his continued suitability for office.
