Sir - What was so refreshing about the inauguration of President Donald Trump last week was the role undertaken by the various religious leaders who attended.

The respect and reverence afforded to them with their messages and prayers of support and goodwill was extremely uplifting and hopeful.

Unfortunately, but not surprising, no mainstream newspapers mentioned this aspect at all. No instead, people, whose arrogance and conceit knows no bounds, were too busy sneering and mocking Mr Trump and indeed his family. Even our so-called celebrities and artists - 'our great moral saviours' - assisted by our national broadcaster could not resist joining their American equivalents in the aforementioned. They are blind to the fact that Mr Trump was democratically elected by winning 60pc of the 51 States but these people do not agree with democracy when they don't get the result they want. How revealing.
