GOP Senator Blasts Trump For Attacking Ethnic And Religious Minorities. Roger Algase

Rate this Entry
Moderate Republican Senator Susan Collins (Maine), who recently criticized Donald Trump for attacking legal Somali immigrants with unfounded charges that they are criminals (see the link to her comments in my August 8 Immigration Daily blogging), has now announced that she cannot support Trump for president.

In a Washington Post op-ed, She gave her reasons as follows:
e

"My conclusion about Mr. Trump's unsuitability for office is based on his disregard for the precept of treating others with respect, an idea that should transcend politics...

Instead, he opts to mock the vulnerable and inflame prejudices by attacking ethnic and religious minorities."

Sne Collins then went on to give two examples of Trump's lack of respect for ethnic and religious minorities. One example was Trump's attack on federal judge Gonzalo Curiel:

Collins stated:

"For Mr. Trump to insist that Judge Curiel would be biased because of his ethnicity demonstrated a profound lack of respect not only for the jusge but for our constitutional separaton of powers..."

She also condemned Trump's attack on the Gold Star parents of Capt. Humayun Khan, the American Muslim soldier who died fighting for his country in Iraq. Collins wrote:

"Rather than honoring their sacrifice and recognizing their pain, Mr. Trump disparaged the religion of an American hero."

A link to the full WP op-ed can be found by going to the following story in The Hill about Sen. Collins' comments. See:

Some of Donald's supporters or apologists argue that his disparaging comments about Muslim, Latino and other minority immigrants should be overlooked or excused because national security "Trumps" everything else.

However, 50 (fifty!) Republican former national security experts have announced that, despite some reservations about Hillary Clinton, they will not be voting for Trump. In their view, he would be the most "reckless" president in America's history.
