Dear Editor: For the following immensely counterproductive reasons, America is its own worst enemy...

Being the sole international outlier regarding the Paris Climate Accords.

Opening national monument lands to exploitative, extractive industries totally devoid of social and environmental responsibility.

Angering virtually every thinking, conscientious person on earth by moving our Israeli embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
