Letter to the Editor

We were told if we elected Mr. Trump he would surround himself with the best people that could be found. Well, so far, thirteen months into his tenure, there are 18 casualties of the Trump administration. So much for the cream of the crop. The ones that are left appear to be doing the will of the 1%ers. I don't see how that makes them the best of the best.
