A roundup of editorials from the Left on Tuesday includes a look at President Donald Trump’s fitness to serve; the opinion that he now “owns” the Afghan war and what the federal government can do about the Ku Klux Klan.

2. The US government destroyed the Ku Klux Klan once. It could do so again

From The Guardian: Congress passed legislation to kill the Klan once before, and they should do it again.

3. Trump backs a surge into Afghanistan: He's unfit to lead

From The Atlantic: Is the president unfit to lead if he backs a surge into Afghanistan? It seems he lacks the consistency to stay the course he’s charted, according to The Atlantic.
