Stephen King has added his voice to those expressing concern over the presidency of Donald Trump.
What encourages me the most about this move is that King is a populist writer and may be able to reach people in ways that the media and the Hollywood elite could not. And I also assume that King has had no problem withstanding the constant barrage of abuse that is being sent his way by Trump supporters.
In fact, I'm not worried at all about the ability of high-profile Trump critics to survive his presidency. But I am concerned about Trump's de-regulation of environmental protection; his insistence on turning a blind eye to human rights abuses; his overhaul of health care in the US that will leave so many vulnerable; his cuts to programs that benefit seniors and the poor; and his flagrant disregard for ethics while in the White House.
Ironically, many of Trump's policies will affect the various groups who supported him and thought he would make their lives better.
