Keep MT safe, re-elect Tester

Dear editor:

Once again, Trump is returning to Montana on Saturday, prolonging his vendetta against Tester for opposing Trump’s incompetent VA administrator nominee, Dr. Jackson.

We don’t need more Trump invective in Bozeman, like that which aroused one of Trump’s Florida fans, recently arrested for sending 13 pipe bombs to Democrats, or which will flatter Congressman Greg Gianforte, who pleaded guilty for body slamming Guardian reporter, Ben Jacobs, for questioning Gianforte’s health care opposition.

Instead of confronting Tester for protecting veterans, Trump should stand up to Vladimir Putin during their upcoming meeting on November 11, and insist that the 26 Russians indicted by Special Prosecutor, Robert Mueller, be extradited to the U.S. to stand trial for interfering in the 2016 election. Trump’s failure to demand extradition of indicted Russians while ditching the nuclear arms limitation (INF) agreement, which has kept us safe for decades, does not keep America safe – or great.

Let’s keep Montana safe and great by re-electing Senator Jon Tester, a native Montanan and farmer, and electing Kathleen Williams to the U.S. House. They understand Montana. They’ll do in Congress what is necessary to keep Montana a great place to live!
