Name Your Sources, Trump

Letter to the Editor published in today’s local newspaper:

President Trump said that all information put out by the press should have a named source attached to it. Why doesn’t he show the way by naming the sources of his “information?”

  • Who counted the votes for him and told him that he won the popular vote in November?
  • Who told him that most undocumented Mexicans were “bad hombres?”
  • Where does he get his information about Muslims?
  • Who told him that torturing suspects is ethical and really works?

When asked why he incorrectly claimed that his Electoral College victory was the largest in modern history, he simply said “Someone told me.”

I think sources are important and, if Trump thinks so too, he should show us how it’s done.
