LETTER: Donald Trump and his minions are the real RINOs

I was pleased by Mitt Romney’s recent observation that Donald Trump is a “RINO” (Republican In Name Only) because he called for the “termination” of the Constitution. Sen. Romney’s point was that — notwithstanding Trump — many Republicans still adhere to traditional “Republican” values, for example, personal freedom, the rule of law, support of law enforcement and, yes, support of the Constitution, to name a few. True, a faction of the party — which includes election deniers and supporters of the Jan. 6 insurrection — rejects these values. But it is members of this faction, which includes Mr. Trump, who are the RINOs, not the other way around.
