To the editor: After I immigrated to the U.S. in 1971, my introduction to nationwide politics was the Watergate hearings, which I adopted intently on TV. The position that distinguished members of the Republican Get together performed within the downfall of President Nixon was anticipated and commendable. (“Is 2024 the year you’ll become an American expat?” Opinion, Jan. 1)
Forty-five years later, I watched Trump get elected and left the nation in horror. Sadly, my American household was unable to hitch me in Switzerland as a consequence of job obligations, so after three months I returned to endure for 4 years watching the rules of my beloved adopted nation being systematically dismantled.
If former President Trump will get reelected, I’ll as soon as once more transfer to Europe, unwilling to spend one other 4 years experiencing the deterioration of our nation at dwelling, and being a laughingstock overseas.
The complicity of Republicans in Trump’s ego-driven schemes jogs my memory an excessive amount of of the developments resulting in World Battle II, and I abhor the senseless adherence of Trump supporters to his amoral habits. They’ll nonetheless be round lengthy after Trump is a nightmarish reminiscence.
