If you believe President Trump will release his financials prior to the election, I shall sell you a used car as new or even a government-financed bridge in New York (“Trump promises to release ‘statement’ on his finances before electio” Web, Nov. 21). As is true of most billionaires, the finances of Mr. Trump present a picture of legal tax evasion, and in his case a history of failed financial efforts. While neither of these should disqualify him for running for or holding office, their disclosure would remove any picture of invincibility.

The question that should be asked is whether the American electorate will accept a flawed but vocal president with a reasonable agenda or instead favor a possible radical, even socialist democratic candidate. The choice between a Democrat and Mr. Trump may depend on whether we want a bipartisan leader or a partisan one.
