To the editor:
But Vice President
Walter Dominguez, Los Angeles
To the editor: Although it is becoming ever more apparent that Trump is unfit for the presidency, I have qualms about the prospect of his possible departure. If the erratic behavior and ignorance of this administration give way to a smoother operation, will the public relapse into docile acquiescence?
The Republican Party and Trump want to pursue the same policies. Presumably the GOP would have smoother sailing without Trump in enacting tax cuts primarily for the rich; fewer safeguards for workers, consumers and minorities; regulations that would speed up climate change and despoil the environment; and privatization of important government functions.
If Trump goes, will citizens continue to mobilize against these extraordinary assaults?

To the editor: Max Boot is certainly correct about one thing: If Trump does resign, it will be because his fellow Republicans force him to. He will not resign because of anything House Minority Leader
I expect Trump to weather the storm and fight back with everything he has.
As for the good of the country, both the Republicans and Democrats have proved they are far more interested in their own political parties. If and when Republican legislators feel that not removing Trump from office will hurt their own chances of reelection, only then will they finally act.

To the editor: Republicans should definitely tell Trump it is time to go, but they'd be preaching to the choir. Trump has recently lamented that he misses his old life and shown contempt for the job by golfing more weekends than actually governing.
Perhaps all these admissions and Russian photos and leaks are from him. He is, after all, the master manipulator.
We can only hope that Trump's selfishness will motivate him to resign and return to the life he misses so much so we can return to the life that Americans miss so much.

To the editor: Renfield picking imaginary flies out of the air in "Dracula" is no match for Trump's unhinged presidency.
A "witch hunt?" I think not. At no point does Trump take responsibility or offer contrition for his countless irrational missteps and lies.
Drowning in his own delusional desperation, might he just "fire" himself and ride out in a blaze of "victimized" glory? Don't be surprised.
