To the Editor:
Mr. Sgroi, you are like so many ardent Trump supporters. You refuse to see him for what he really is. A pathological liar (all the thousands of people he saw who were dancing over in New Jersey while the twin towers were coming down), a misogynist (bragging about grabbing women by their genitals), a narcissist (“I am the best”), and racist person (ban all Muslims).
I could go on and on but I think you got the idea. He insults and belittles people. Remember him mocking out the disabled reporter? And what jobs did he save? None that I know of (see this article and see how many jobs he created: www.money.cnn.com/2017/02/17/news/companies/donald-trump-jobs-watch/index.html)
He is a bully trying to stifle and control the press, which is the first step that all dictators try to do. It isn’t the Democrats who say that Russia tried to hack our election or his team contacted the Russians; it is the FBI and many Republicans who have said this. And have you forgotten General Flynn? Wake up. Your idol has feet of clay and you can’t see the trees for the forest.
I predict that Trump will be impeached or forced to resign within two years for one or all of four reasons. The Russia problem, his war with the press, his business dealings, his mouth.

To the Editor:
We are facing the eventual dismantling of Medicare.
The first step being undertaken is our Congressional leaders starting with Americans over the age of 60. These Americans will have to pay more for health insurance, low-income families will lose their insurance, and many disabled people, hepatitis patients and opiod addicts would no long receive treatments that they now have.
If President Trump truly believed that Medicare would not be touched, why would he appoint Dr. Tom Price as Secretary of Health & Human Services?
Dr. Price was awarded for his efforts in fighting the creation of Medicare (Doctors for Patient Freedom). He is also an active member of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, which strongly opposes Medicare, and offers training to doctors on how to opt out of the program.
I believe it is not far-fetched to conclude that between Dr. Price and House Leader Paul Ryan, we can soon see Medicare being voucherized. Then, see if the vouchers will cover the premiums of seniors trying to afford health insurance.
Do not be deceived. Be vigilant and call your federal legislators (202-224-3121) to leave Medicare alone and negotiate drug prices covered under Medicare Part D.
