Letter: Manipulator in chief?

Ninety-nine percent of conservative talk radio proclaims the utter evil of Hillary Clinton following in the footsteps of President Barack Obama and that only a radical change of policies can save the fate of America. Donald Trump’s business “acumen” is regarded as being the salvation of our “American way of life.” What a close look at his business practices reveals is that the manipulation of anything and anyone to achieve his end is regarded as being perfectly OK. This attitude is precisely the most virulent aspect of a capitalist economy, and it is disconcerting that so many Americans seem willing to accept it as being their way of life.
