President Donald Trump meets with Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani in the Oval Office of the White House, Tuesday, July 9, 2019, in Washington.

Dear Editor:

As a longtime reader of your paper, I can’t help but smell biased reporting when it comes to politics in the U.S.

Let’s take for example David Bond’s “Economic Letter” column of July 3. The last sentence reads, “Unless of course, Trump is defeated in the next election.”

You would like him to be defeated. And where is the title President? President Trump was righteously elected to be the American president and therefore earned his title.

Another example, on the left side of that same page we read in the “Today’s question”: Which of the five front-runners in the Democratic presidential race do you believe would have the best chance of defeating Donald Trump?

It seems to me that this paper has strong tendencies or affinities with the fake news of our neighbours south of the border. Their only agenda is to get rid of this president, nothing else.

I would encourage anyone to shut off CNN for a while and watch Fox News instead to get a more accurate picture of what this president has accomplished in two-and-a-half years.

I am a Canadian and want to see the politics in the U.S. realistically. Their president loves his country and reigns to the best of his country.

If I could trade our lame duck in Ottawa for this energetic achiever, I would.

By the way, our local TV station, as well as CBC, also need some fairer reporting of world events.

Don’t just assume that everyone supports a democratic, leftist, liberal agenda. Many people think very different from you, they just keep it to themselves.

A more neutral stand would make your paper a lot more appealing to a broad range of readers here in town.
