‘Rich, white men’ now in control

To the editor:

God help us, we are about to get Trumped, and this isn’t a card game. I fear for our country. I didn’t think that it could get any worse than eight years of W. Nobody seems to remember how bad that it was. And in spite of Republican obstructionism, which was classic, the country turned around.

Now Trump and his pals are about to give us their vision of the American dream. Very rich white men for the most part are now in charge of the very government agencies who’s job it was to keep an eye on them. The foxes are now in charge of the chicken coop. And they can do as they please. He’s going to fix us by turning them lose. Who benefits from the fix? Only the rich and powerful.

Today, I heard James Hoffa, president of the Teamsters, supporting some of Trump's actions. I am willing to give him a chance rather than prejudge his presidency.
