Bradenton Herald should tell the truth about Trump’s State of the Union message

The Feb. 7 edition of the Bradenton Herald contained an editorial on the front page. The front page should contain news; editorials belong in the Opinion Section. This article contained not a bit of news. Even the title, “Trump bets re-election bid on issues such as immigration, socialism,” is fake news.

Illegal immigration and socialism are Democrat values. You could add gun control, global warming, late-term and after-birth abortion, and unending investigations.

These investigations cover any suspected misdeed by any Republican connected years later to the Trump Administration. They result in bizarre early morning arrests by heavily-armed FBI agents. But Hillary’s use of a personal computer system to conduct highly sensitive government business and the destruction of documents that she was under court order to turn over, both illegal, will not be investigated. Nor will they investigate Bill Clinton’s highly paid speeches to foreign governments while Hillary, as secretary of State, was in a position to grant favors to these governments, and the drying-up of these speech arrangements since.

The goals and achievements that President Trump mentioned in his State of the Union Address (the supposed subject of this article) include bipartisanship, increased legal immigration, and record levels of employment; especially employment of women, blacks, Hispanics, and Asians.

The voters will have the opportunity to choose between these two visions. The Herald should provide correct and impartial information to aid them.
