LETTER: Of course Donald Trump uses accountants

I am wondering if Frederick Mitchell, who wrote a letter published Saturday criticizing Donald Trump, really believes that wealthy people write their own contracts, plan their own financial deals and figure their own taxes.

I have very little, but I have to employ someone to figure my income taxes every year. If I were on the witness stand and asked to explain my figures, I would have to say that I could not. If asked if I have ever signed something without knowing what it actually was, I would have to say yes, that I could trust only the person I hired to do it correctly. I think a good businessman is someone who has a team around him that is smart enough to be able to navigate a complex system.

I also think it is sweet that Hillary Clinton thinks that, for the first 75 years of my life, I did not have a single thought in my head. Just an empty skull — until 2014 when Mr. Trump entered the political scene and filled it with his ideas. I want her to know that I support him because he thinks like I do and not the other way around. That is probably the last thing she wants to believe.

I want energy independence back, I want our border closed, I want learning to actually be a part of our education system, I want prices down and I want stability in the world. I felt safe under President Trump, and I want to feel safe again.

Remember when the Democrats lectured us on the importance of never revealing the identity of a confidential informant? Apparently, when you provide the FBI with information about a sitting president taking bribes from Ukraine, all bets are off.

It is apparent that the justices on the Alabama Supreme Court either did not understand the process of IVF, or are, frankly, religious nutcakes who don’t give a damn.

The A’s short-term goal of staying in Oakland, with fallback plans of Salt Lake City and Sacramento is a slap in the face of Las Vegas baseball fans.
