The calls to move past Donald Trump have to be ignored by the voters (“Mutiny: GOP figures turn on Trump for deflating party’s midterm score,” Web. Nov. 10). One reason is that those who want to “dump Trump” haven’t put in one hundredth of the time and effort Mr. Trump has. Trump deserves his time — as speaker or president in 2024. He was covered with Rep. Adam Schiff’s fabricated dirt and he should get the chance to clean up that mess. What’s more, we need him to fix the economy the way only he can. Plus, he will give us the power to take care of crime.

On the flip side, Trump needs to stop needling Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. Infighting with the single most popular governor today is stupid and unnecessary. Mr. Trump is beginning to sound like Al Gore, the guy who says he invented the internet. Mr. Trump may have helped Mr. DeSantis once, but Mr. DeSantis has done the rest; make no mistake. No one “invented” Mr. DeSantis but Mr. DeSantis.

Mr. Trump‘s mouth always has gotten him in trouble. But that’s Donald Trump, and we can take him or leave him. He will not allow 2024 to be taken, so Democrats have their work cut out for them.
