Is America first, or is it coming in last?

By Lindi Mereness


Dear Editor:

I noticed a fellow at Cherry Days, Paonia who was wearing a T-shirt that stated "TRUMP IS MY PRESIDENT." I thought about that and had to agree! Just as Obama was my president! Listening to the G20 Summit reports on the news, regarding the climate, our global environment, 19 out of 20 countries respect and humble to their participation in the Paris Climate Agreement. Nineteen big, whopping industrialized polluters out of 20 agree to continued responsible forward thinking actions, agreements and commitments. One out of 20 does not agree to responsible forward thinking. I recall Trump's big words "America First," then regard his big actions, and wonder if he meant "America Last," for that is the face America is showing to the world.
