Letter: ‘Outside world’ doesn’t elect president, we do

Ed Woods


To the editor:

This is a reply to Ahmed Mubarak’s view printed Oct. 22.

Ahmed, without a doubt you are a true fan of our president. You made enough comments in your first paragraph to write a book.

In your first sentence, I got confused when you asked what the “outside world” expects of a president of the United States of America. Ahmed, who cares what the “outsiders” think? As far as I know, unless the chief executive did another end run with another executive order, only U.S. citizens have the right to vote for our president.

But to answer your question, the outsiders, especially those in the sandbox area, seem to think he is just wonderful, bowing to rulers of the countries he has visited, followed with billions of funds his administration leaves behind.
