Regarding the April 11 letter in the BDN on the difference between Jimmy Carter and Donald Trump; Trump got things done (border security, jobs, low inflation, energy independence, NATO members paying fair share of costs, general respect for the U.S.)

Carter floundered for four years, culminating in the Iran hostage debacle.
