Re­gard­ing “A felon and a deal in Moscow” (Front page, Fri­day): Many who have ques­tioned Pres­i­dent Trump’s acu­men to lead the United States on the na­tional and in­ter­na­tional stages have pointed to his mul­ti­ple busi­ness bank­rupt­cies (e.g., casi­nos) and ques­tion­able busi­ness prac­tices (e.g., Trump Uni­ver­sity) as causes for con­cern. It is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly clear that these pale in con­trast to his to­tal mo­ral bank­ruptcy — con­tin­u­ing false state­ments, in­ter­min­gling gov­ern­ing pro­cesses with per­sonal busi­ness ben­e­fits, and sur­round­ing him­self with a team of in­dicted and con­victed felons and oth­ers of ques­tion­able char­ac­ter.

We can only hope that at least some of Trump’s base, in­clud­ing Repub­li­can politi­cians who have stood strongly for him over his first two years in of­fice, will come to the re­al­iza­tion that our repub­lic is ill-served by their con­tin­ued sup­port. Alan Husak, Hous­ton
