Letter to the Editor: When it comes to Trump, look at big picture

Body: 

To the editor:

Respectfully Mr. Leighton ("Fact checking Trump's statements" Aug. 31 letter to the editor), President Trump is a successful CEO turned president, not a career politician. You may want to look at the big picture.

The booming economy. The booming employment. Need I go on? No, he isn't as media savvy as his political peers, but as I stated before, he is not a career politician either.

As for the sites you selected for fact checking, you will have to forgive my conservative snub of the Post as well as the University of Pennsylvania wrapped factcheck.org.

Maybe as an American you should embrace what is in front of you and find what's positive and wait for 2020.
