Your paper recommended voters “reject” Trump” No mention why Hillary Clinton would be a better president, simply why Trump is such a bad option. (“Editorial Board: Say no to Trump,” Sunday)

Trump supporters see right through your cowardly attempt to (kind of) recommend Clinton without actually recommending her.

Trump is right. The media (you) are in the tank for Clinton. You are biased.

Craig Ward, Euless

 

Thank you for your completely factual denunciation of Donald Trump, and congratulations for the recommendation to vote against him.

While Hillary Clinton may not have been your first choice, she is the only sensible decision.

Ray Cook, Fort Worth

 

The editorial board left out two additional reasons for rejecting Trump:

For one, his birther charges against President Obama, with his insane demand to see Obama’s birth certificate.

If that were not enough, the addition of Steve Bannon of Breitbart and alt-right infamy as his campaign CEO should have been the show-stopper for anyone with any ounce of common decency.

For anyone to endorse this man would be disturbing and appalling.

John W. Sullivan,

If America needs a leader, why are you suggesting we elect a liar?

We barely survived President Barack Obama, and you want his female counterpart?

If you love America and freedom, then don’t vote Hillary Clinton.

Chrysanne Mason, Euless

 

At this time in America when one candidate is aligned with white supremacists and the alt-right, and wants to destroy the GOP, it is not enough to say don’t support him.

When Trump cannot commit to accepting the results of an election, calls for the Second Amendment option on his opponent, threatens to jail his political opponents, calls the whole system rigged, lies every three minutes, admits to being a sexual predator — you still cannot recommend Clinton?

Surely you must have witnessed her surgical dismemberment of Trump during the debates, something any world leader would also fear, as enough to compel you to say she earned the Star-Telegram’s respect and recommendation.

Buddy Luce, Southlake

 

The Star-Telegram waited until a few weeks before the election to finally recommend the lying, stealing, cheating Hillary Clinton.

Sure, Donald Trump is an unknown quantity, but better that than a woman who has been dishonest for 30 years.

The gullibility of the American people is unbelievable and obviously you weren’t raised to honor, respect and deeply love these wonderful United States.

Sharon Meshew, Bedford

 

I tend to agree with most everything your editorial board wrote on Sunday. However, they, like most media types, left out some important facts.

A first priority for a president is to uphold the laws of the country. In the case of Clinton, we would be electing someone already above the law and way beyond.

She is deceitful, manipulative, self-serving, mean-spirited, callous and power-hungry, with no love of country. If your editors had included my musings to theirs, the voters would have a fair and balanced summary of the candidates.

Michael Leinen, Grapevine
