Letter: How many chances is Trump allowed?

In the Feb. 26 Gazette there were two letters telling us to not judge President Donald Trump and give him a chance (“Give President Trump a chance to heal nation” and “Give Trump a chance to make changes”).

In the short time he has been in office he has lied (murder rates in the United States are the highest in 47 years), insisted on distorting reality (his inauguration crowd was bigger than President Barack Obama’s), and he is promoting censorship (banning certain news media from his news conferences).

In baseball, one is allowed three strikes before one is out of the game. How many more chances is Trump allowed to have?
