Letter to the editor

Many thanks to Utah's senators for voting to block Trump's pathetic attempt to ignore the rule of law and overreach the constitutional rights given a president, when he lied again in his claims about a delusional fake crisis on the southern border.

Shame on Rep. Stewart for supporting Trump's disgraceful illegal actions and lies. Whether the admirable vote to block Trump was because it violates the constitutional authority of the president, or it was just to say no to the insanity of creating a crisis so that he could try to declare an emergency due to his policies or both, it is to be applauded.

Trump is succeeding in destroying America's democracy. Trump and the Trump Republicans are a worldwide disgrace.
