Bigger photos of Trump needed

There was a small photo of our President and First Lady escorting American hostages off the plane from North Korea.

If a Democrat had initiated this release, would it still be on the back page?

We the people elected this President, and we will continue to support him.

Stormy Daniels can't claim defamation

Stormy Daniels is suing President Trump for defamation of character.

She defamed herself by going public.

Too bad we don’t have the British system where the loser has to pay the attorneys on both sides.

Her appearance on "Saturday Night Live" must have netted her a few bucks. Clearly she is making a lot of money from her defamation.

Trump, McCain defined by their quarters

President Trump is the ultimate hotelier with his name emblazoned in gold across the facades of many luxury hotels.

As Commander-in-Chief, he rules America’s massive military complex.

It’s a strange title for a man whose only combat experience is his combativeness, some of it directed at U.S. Sen. John McCain, whose time as a POW was ridiculed because he was “caught.”

The president’s fascination with the military is strange considering he took five deferments from the draft. He deliberately missed his opportunity to serve something besides a tennis ball.

Many grand hotels define the president; only one hotel defines the senator. The Hanoi Hilton.

Calls for unity seem belated

Can't help but wonder about the people who are admonishing those who don't support President Trump.

During the eight years under President Obama, were they also calling for unity and criticizing those politicians who blocked his every move?

Trump a bad influence

At Starbucks and Sambuca360, we saw police called on African-American patrons who had done nothing wrong.

The manager made his issue clear. He was white, and wanted this African-American man out because "I don't like you" and called police.

So we're back to this? What's next, white-only signs? Once again, African-Americans aren't welcome at public facilities?

Since Trump's been elected, racism has done a 360° and come back with a vengeance.

Offer solutions instead of blaming

Leonard Pitts takes a single error in a Starbucks and blames America. ("Starbucks isn't the problem, America is," April 17)

He even condemns us for events that might happen somewhere.

If Pitts could lay out solutions rather than lay out blame it would be welcome.

Judging people was exactly what happened in Philly, but am I to blame for poor results?
