Congressman Erik Paulsen, as you should be well aware, the many inflammatory pronouncements by Donald Trump during the last two years are causing a significant increase in hate crimes. The fact that he is now president and commander-in-chief legitimizes his disgusting ideologies in the warped and depraved minds of the collective "alt-right."
I was left agape with incredulity by U.S. Rep. Erik Paulsen's Aug. 25 commentary criticizing Minnesota's U.S. senators for delaying Justice David Stras' nomination to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. Paulsen complains that "[s]talling Stras' nomination is the latest example of partisan game-playing in Washington" and urges Sens.
Re: Friday’s subhead “Minnesota Republican touts plan ...” — that is, a plan to lower and simplify taxes. What? Where’s the plan? I read the article twice and saw absolutely no detail, none. Sure, there were some vague suggestions, but no plan (“Paulsen pitches lowering, simplifying taxes,” Aug. 18).
