My first choice for President in 2016 was Jeb Bush. I considered Bush the strongest candidate. When his campaign faltered, I turned to Donald Trump as the most likely to prevent an extreme liberal Democrat from becoming President.
During the first year of the Trump administration, I was buoyed by our success with tax reform, regulatory reform, trade policy, and appointments of conservative judges. The economy boomed as a result of the Administration’s efforts.
However, there was a disturbing undercurrent of negativity–reports of foreign intrigue, immorality, and mismanagement. My confidence weakened, my hopes disappointed.
I support the Administration’s stated goals, but I now fear that scandal and extreme partisan animosity will hinder further progress. While I trust that the President’s efforts to answer the charges against him will ultimately clear his name, I fear that the effort will distract from further progress. I believe we now need to put the problems faced by the Trump Administration behind us. I urge President Trump to resign so that a new Republican administration guided by President Pence can continue our progress.
