Letters to the Editor: Mr. Trump, please don’t run. The nation needs healing, not you.
Donald Trump is the quintessential embodiment of a destructive force that has infected the American imagination. The sheer breadth and depth of the destruction he has wreaked will inevitably lead to his own destruction.

We should elect someone better. We should take a breath and a deep breath and look in the mirror and remind ourselves that we are better than this.
In the immortal words of Theodore Roosevelt: “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
We should not run.

His behavior is unbecoming of the great White House, and frankly, I don’t understand the president’s obsession with this. Surely there is more important stuff going on.
I believe Mr. Trump understands the negative effects of
