To the Editor:

It cannot be left to just Democrats to express outrage and disgust at the President labeling Haiti and Africa “sh..hole countries,” stating a  preference for “people from Norway” and, further, that Nigerians of whom he was speaking would be “returning to their huts.” And these are only the most recent among other racist and xenophobic of his utterances.

As the life-long Republican I am, I abhor what the President says and the dangerous and vile demagoguery in which he indulges on an almost daily basis.

His verbal sewage diminishes the Republican Party in ways yet to be realized and spreads a societal infection only the ballot box can cure.
