Trump is not a role model

Our "so-called" President Donald Trump has been in office for only several weeks and he’s setting a terrible example for the youth of America, and for the world. He and his staff famously espouses fake news, "alternative facts" and attack anyone who disagrees with the administration’s view. He especially insults the media and appears to be running a mean-spirited campaign of hate and discontent. What happened to civil discourse and inclusion from the leader of our country?

Our "so-called" president is not a good role model for our children and grandchildren. How can any parent/grandparent say that this behavior should be emulated? It’s nothing more than classic school yard bullying and outright lying.

Are the Trump voters happy with him as a role model? I certainly hope not. America deserves better behavior than this.
