To the Editor:

This is regarding the Jan. 24 Letter to the Editor in The Hour by Woody Strong on the inauguration of Donald Trump.

Yes, Woody, we are living in a divided country. But, the left does not want Trump to fail. (It was Mitch McConnell and the Republican Party who verbalized their desire for Barack Obama to fail, to be a one-term president.)

What “the left” wants is assurance that women will be respected, that public education remains public, that health care is accessible to all, that civil rights are maintained, that climate change is recognized, to name but a few of the many issues of concern.
