Contrived and coordinated bias and disdain won’t change the facts

RE: “Will the Democrats identify their Dr. Koop?” [Column, Jan. 29]:

IElaine Clift claims that “If Democrats fail to provide strategic messages that hit home, voters won’t know what’s been happening under the radar because of the Trump administration, nor will they realize how it affects them.”

It’s my observation that the Democrats, supported by the print media, broadcast television, academia, and Hollywood stars, have offered a clear message. It’s “We hate the president.”

As the president and his administration’s accomplishments continue to increase, his approval rating with voters across the nation, no amount of contrived and coordinated bias and disdain will change the facts.

I think that the real issue with the message of the Left is that no matter how many times you repeat an anti-Trump message, the statistics bear out that the nation has undergone a significant recovery under President Trump.

I am looking forward to this election year and will share with everyone the concise, effective, and dynamic message on my red hat: “Keep America Great!”
