Trump flunks every aspect of Rotary International's 'Four-Way Test'

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

The members of a well-known service organization agree to abide by a "Four-Way Test" of things we think, say and do: 1. Is it the truth? 2. Is it fair to all concerned? 3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships? 4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

President Trump would fail on all parts of this test. He has repeatedly lied, he has cheated his subcontractors, he has made enemies of anyone who disagrees with him, and he consistently seeks to do what benefits only him, usually at the expense of others.

Rotary International, the service organization in question, is a non-profit, non-religious and non- political organization of men and women worldwide. Its sole purpose is to save and improve lives both locally and globally. Rotary is also one of the founding members of the United Nations and has raised millions of dollars to eradicate polio throughout the world. To become a member of Rotary one must be of high moral character both in business and as a private citizen. It is unfortunate that our president falls so short of this standard.

In writing this letter, I am expressing only my personal views and not those of Rotary International.

Duane Hammond
