Trump will lose, and he’ll take the Republican Party down with him

I was astonished when I read Max Goldberg-Keller’s letter (“Donald Trump will beat Hillary Clinton,” June 15).

Max imagined a fantasy world where Trump defeats Clinton and assumes the presidency as our first fascist president.

The polls have Clinton in a 12-point lead over Trump, and Republicans are abandoning him in droves almost every time he delivers another maniacal speech.

After his last rant, most of the Republican leadership refused to comment to the press. Speaker Paul Ryan has repeatedly condemned Trump’s anti-Muslim and other racist and sexist remarks. Come back to the real world, Max.

Trump will lose in a landslide and set back the Republican Party for decades.
