Our media’s great hate and criticism of Trump affects how we are perceived and treated by other countries, yet no one discusses this impact, which could be very bad for US.

In Helsinki, Trump showed the world that his hero of the American Revolution is Benedict Arnold. I hope Putin gifts him a dacha in Russia.

Obama bowed to authoritarian monarchs who kill gay people and oppress women, but Trump is nice to Putin and he committed treason. Crazy?

Unbelievable. Trump sides with Russia against US intelligence agencies on Russia meddling with our election in 2016. Sad! Trump really is Putin’s puppet.

I hope StarNews will print the names of the school board members who voted to extend Superintendent Markley's contract. I will not be voting for them in November.

Even those of us who were and are strongly against Trump for president could never imagine this person standing with Putin and selling us all down the river. Time for him to be removed.

Letter writer says Democrats are planning violence. Really? Democrats? Peace-loving, pacifistic Democrats? Also, Antifa would be insulted by being lumped in with Democrats!

Trump shows true colors in presser after Helsinki meeting: he's in the tank for Putin. Appalling, weak lapdog!

I'm 63. I hope I live long enough to see the day when there are no "My Pillow" commercials on TV.

President Trump says "America First" but means "except for Russia." Remember your oath, Mr. President: ":...defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic." Did you have your fingers crossed?

In 2012, Obama berates Romney and announces that Cold War is over. In 2014 Obama is warned of Russian interference and did nothing. Where was the outcry from the left?

Kudos to the Brunswick County Ocean Ridge Quilters for their ongoing charity work.

Houseboats! What next? Has the city given its approval yet?

Russia, if you're listening, show us Trump's tax returns.

It's amazing -- truly a miracle of Biblical proportions -- that so many Republican senators and representatives are able to walk upright without a spine.

Southport Old Yacht Basin issue discussed in open forum with energetic give and take. Democracy in action. Refreshing. Good on Mayor Dove and Board of Aldermen.

Putin and Trump: bully out-bullied, liar out-lied, deal maker out-dealt, puppet out-puppeted. What does Russia have on him? Congress needs to grow some and censure the turncoat.

Were Wilmington City Council members aware of training facilities in place and in use at CFCC

North Campus before deciding to spend $9.1 million on the WFD/WPD?

We got to see what happens when a bully is confronted by a tougher bully. Our bully cowered and whimpered. Never more embarrassed to be an American.

Since when is murdering your child synonymous with “women's healthcare?”

A houseboat development will be based in the Cape Fear River in Wilmington. What are the plans for hurricanes? What is the insurance for a guaranteed loss?

All restaurants should provide good quality ketchup such as Heinz or Hunt’s. Cheap alternatives ruins the taste of the fries!

Limit campaigns to 6 weeks! Use the billions spent on campaigns to fix real problems. The elected can then do the job they are elected to do.

A plethora of anti-Trump comments over 4th of July came from the majority of us who are sickened every day by his lies and inability to protect our country.

Putin:bear. Trump:lapdog

Astonished at the number of Buzzards who identify negative characteristics of Trump supporters and then attribute them to liberals. There is none so blind as he who will not see.

After hearing Trump explain his interaction with Putin about Russian meddling in the 2016 election, I now know how Alice in Wonderland felt when talking to the Red Queen. Huh?

Attention Yankees: Please stop telling your northern friends how great this place is. Let them stay there and be miserable.

Junior, Kushner, and Manafort met with Russian operatives in daddy's building to purposely affect our elections. Lock them up!

UNC football coach says sport not responsible for concussions. Would you want your loved one playing for him? Unacceptable! Disgraceful!

In response to Dana Milbank article, “We're a very stupid country. Trump said so.” Dana, you’re a very stupid columnist. I said so.

No more Historic Downtown Wilmington. It will be the home of hotels and condos/apartments. All the character of the area is gone. Real estate people running the city.

There are 2 million hogs and over 500 farms in Duplin County. How many hog lagoons and how much hog waste is in Duplin County?

Wednesday's StarNews headlines: UNC Scandal Cloud Clears. Thursday's StarNews: UNC reports new violations to NCAA. Lack of Institutional control. Disgusting!

Kudos to Pam Sander and Scott Nunn for printing my letter of July 19, "Take On Trump, SN." There is yet hope for the newspaper. Now, how about that editorial?

If you’re not going to give me a straw, you better make sure the glass is clean. Not putting my mouth on dirty glass.

Talk show hosts say president spreading hatred. ABC network needs to look at who is spreading hatred in its own backyard.

A Buzzard likens Trump/Russia to Obama/Saudi Arabia. I don't recall Obama throwing his own intelligence community under the bus on international TV while praising a murderous dictator.

Time for some of you to grow up. Understand enough about human behavior to know that berating tyrants gets you nothing. Unless you prefer a more adversarial position from them?

Misleading StarNews headline: "Trump opposes Putin's request to interview US officials." Actually Trump only caved on this stupid idea when he realized Senate was going to vote overwhelmingly against it.
