Trump exploits DWI victim for own gain

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionIs there any depth that Donald Trump is unwilling to descend in advance of his political agenda? Recently he chose to exploit the tragic death of Indianapolis Colt linebacker Edwin Jackson. Trump tweeted that Jackson’s death was a preventable tragedy and that he was killed by a person illegally in our country. He used the incident to promote his immigration policies. Jackson was killed in a crash with a drunk driver. The fact that the driver was in the United States illegally was not the cause of the crash. Drunk driving caused it. In 2015, there were 10,265 people who died in alcohol related crashes. Who knew that the solution to this problem was simply the building of a wall. Shame on you, Donald Trump, for once again twisting events for your political gain.William McPhersonBallston SpaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusGuilderland girls’ soccer team hands BH-BL first league lossFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristslast_img
