About the Book

A collection of Letters to the Editor highlighted with political illustrations about the Age of Trump written over the year leading up to the 2020 elections.

"My hatred of Don the Con Trump knows no bounds. I am not alone. Millions stand with me in feeling that Trumpism is a major threat to our existence, our survival. Trump’s mental imbalance has been clearly demonstrated. Major medical authorities have sounded the alarm that Trump is a clear and present danger to all of us. I believe I speak for the majority of Americans when I say life is precious to us, to our families, to our nation. That’s a simple truth. If you believe what I’ve said, then how, I ask, can any of you support an unstable President whose shaking hand -- is over the nuclear trigger. The answer to this monstrosity in the making – remove Trumpists from power and restore pride in our nation, flag, values – and let us be able to go to sleep with a realization that we will wake up the next morning". Richard Castellane
