Trump misguided in war on science

It is difficult to believe that Donald Trump has declared war on science. It’s very, very disheartening.

Years ago I took classes in geology, astronomy, ornithology and other subjects, which were very interesting. I graduated from college with a degree in science but could not get a job as a woman in a science-related field. So I went back to college to pursue another degree.

Today, there are many more scientific discoveries to be made, and many inventions will occur based on those developments.

President Trump needs to find a way to encourage our inventors and our scientists to keep working on new discoveries.
