To the Editor:

Donald Trump is a child, and I don’t mean to disparage children. The characteristics he exhibits are childlike.

He takes no responsibility for his actions. When asked by a reporter if he takes responsibility for the federal government’s delay in virus testing, he answered; “I take no responsibility at all.” He’s declared bankruptcy multiple times, leaving his creditors holding his debt. The idea of the buck stopping here doesn’t apply to him.

He blames others for the effects of his words, telling his supporters that Bernie Sanders supporters were responsible for the unrest at one of his Chicago campaign rallies. He blames Obama for all his administrations failures: saying he inherited “a mess, a total mess.” It’s been three years and he still blames Obama.

His name calling and bullying are his go to weapons. He recently called Marine Veteran Congressman Conor Lamb an “American fraud.” We’re familiar with the demeaning monikers that he regularly uses; crooked, little, weak, horse face, dog, and snake. Sounds like an eight year old. The list is virtually endless.

We can agree or disagree about his politics, but one thing on which we should agree, this man-child is not qualified to be called President of anything especially the United States of America.

On Nov. 3, we have an opportunity to vote this mentally, emotionally, and morally deficient individual out of office. Replace this child with an adult; Joe Biden.
