How does a nation slip into a dictatorship? Do what President Trump is doing by firing people right and left. This creates chaos in our government. His erratic behavior is dangerous.

Many people are pretending that our country is in good shape when the whole government is going down hill because of Trump. This is like the story about the Emperor's New Clothes because a lot of adults do not see what is going on. The United States is sure lucky to have a president who knows everything. He doesn't need anyone to confide in because of this knowledge.

Republicans are afraid of losing their jobs, so they go along with his dictatorship. Are government employees loyal to the president or are they loyal to our country? Our nation has always prided itself in being a democracy. We've always had checks and balances in our government, but that seems to be lost under Trump's leadership.

I hope something is being done in the Congress to stop this craziness. We love America, but this is not the America we have known. How can any other country respect the United States with a president like Donald Trump and the Republican Party that goes along with him?
