To the Editor:

President Donald Trump undermined his own reelection by opting to vilify the press and all those who did not kowtow before him as “enemies of America,” rather than highlighting his administration’s achievements, especially overseas.

His administration’s peacemaking efforts went beyond the Abraham Accords that now include Sudan.

While his “Deal of the Century” was so anti-Palestinian that it had no chance to succeed, President Trump did coax Kosovo and Serbia into signing a milestone economic accord and he has sought to deescalate tensions on the Korean Peninsula and bring an end to the internecine bloodletting in Afghanistan and Iraq — in large part, so our troops can finally return home.

His administration’s initiatives to help Armenia and Azerbaijan resolve their differences over Nagorno-Karabakh and to establish a maritime border between Israel and Lebanon are also commendable.

He alone bears responsibility for his tainted legacy.

I agree with dailymajor. Trump could have even accepted the green new deal, and done what the AOC or quad wanted. The media would target him in the wrong way. So yes I agree he did right in targeting the media. Still right now why isn't the media reporting the Hunter laptop, or how rigged this election turned out. Univision and Telemundo are not doing any good in helping the Hispanic community either.

Even before Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, he was villified, joked about, misrepresented, and even lied about by the mass liberal media. This was carried on throughout his presidency by the media and all the late night talk shows, ..Kimmel and Colbert, especially. They didn't miss a night criticizing or making fun of him.He was CNN and MSNBCs favorite target, every single day.

...Did this happen with Clinton or Obama? Of course it didn't, they were the darlings of the liberal left, but it did with Bush and Trump.They never gave credit for any of the great things Trump did during his presidency..and he did a lot of very positive things concerning minorities, the military, jobs, and our economy. We, as a country, dealt from a position of strength, not weakness.

It's amazing how people can get wrong impressions about people from the press, tv news, and pundits.Can you blame Trump for targeting the media when they targeted him every single day for over four years?
