Not praiseworthy

Recent letter author Priscilla Rahn wrote that Trump deserves praise. Ms. Rahn didn’t comment on why the president waited so long to get serious about the pandemic given we now know he was told in early January that a big problem was brewing. Nor did she comment on Trump’s decision in January to block Chinese tourists coming to America but didn’t quarantine Americans returning from China. He repeated the same mistake with European travelers and Americans abroad in that part of the world.

He told state governors to find and purchase their own supplies and then ordered FEMA to stop ventilators ordered by Colorado. Unfortunately, the pandemic apparently has not stopped the president from belittling those who disagree with him. The worst thing a true leader can do is to assume he is all-knowing, something which Trump never fails to remind us. A bright spot is that he’s starting to listen to the smart people in our country — of course it only took 3 1/2 years for him to start.

Meanwhile, If Ms. Rahn wants to extend praise for leadership I suggest she look no farther than the governor of Colorado. Thanks to her letter, I am informed to not vote for her for regent since she is obviously too politically motivated to serve in such a critical role in our state’s education system.
