Hugh Hewitt and the case for not re-electing President Trump

Hugh Hewitt's recent argument for President Trump's re-election makes clear why he must be defeated. Every "accomplishment" Hewitt lists is abhorrent. For example, he celebrates Trump's nomination of judges – the scale of which is only possible because hearings weren't held on President Obama's nominations. Or he praises Trump's withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear treaty, which appalled the world, and from the Paris climate accords, which endangers the survival of the human race. Or he mentions Trump's response to the pandemic merely to blame the coronavirus on China. If you feel unenthusiastic about Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, read Hewitt's hymn to Trump as a reminder of what voting for them means. (Andrew Shields, #111words, 13 August)
