Some lies are true

I would like to cite two instances in which Mr. Trump was accurate.

In the first instance during his campaign, he asserted that the election is rigged.

He was right. The fix was in, but not to his detriment through three million to five million unauthorized aliens voting against him, but in his favor through voter suppression targeting African American, Hispanic American and Muslim American voters.

These methods included gerrymandering, reduction of voting stations and hours.

The second truth was in his inaugural speech when he said, “January 20th 2017 will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this country again. The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.”

As I watched the Woman’s March on Washington 2017, with reportedly 500,000 participants - men, women and children of diverse groups, ethnicities, religions and backgrounds, all reflected in marches across the country, I realized Mr. Trump was 100 percent right.

The American people, the forgotten men and women, will rule the country once more because they are taking it back.

I guess some lies are true.

I think that Roslyn Sinha, an Iraqi woman with a visa who was caught mid-flight by Trump's travel ban, said it best when she said: "Being banned over my parents' heritage was unfair treatment. But when you see the activists, the lawyers, the people who are protesting to get us back home, you think that this country will always be great, no matter what."

The cruel, wicked things some people do tend to bring out the good in others.
