Bet on DeSantis

Note to Lara Trump: You are one voter and don’t get to inform Gov. Ron DeSantis or different certified Republicans when and if they need to run for president (“Lara wants DeSantis delay,” Nov. 15).

Many of us like Ron DeSantis and what he has executed for the state of Florida. Since 2016, former President Donald Trump — whereas an excellent president — price the GOP the House in 2018 and 2020 and now the Senate in 2022. He has grow to be an albatross — and a vindictive one at that — lashing out at any potential candidate youthful, wiser and extra disciplined.

If there was a referendum on Election Day, it ended up being one on Trump, not on Biden, one of many worst presidents within the historical past of the United States, who has executed a lot to wreck the financial system and our status.

We can’t have Biden as president in 2024, and the GOP doesn’t belong to the Trump household. I write this as somebody who voted for Trump twice and would in all probability achieve this once more, however doesn’t need him to run on the threat of enabling Biden to destroy us much more than he already has.

Post ardour

I grew up on The Post as a younger lad, studying one of the best sports activities part on the town (“Only in New York, kiddies,” Cindy Adams, Nov. 16).

I grew to become an NYPD officer again in 1992, and labored up within the Bronx for my first 10 years. I might meet up with the native South Bronx Post supply man within the wee hours of my midnight shift to supply some safety (poor man was robbed a variety of instances).

Fast ahead to the top of my 28-year NYPD profession, I might learn The Post at Trump Tower whereas offering safety for 45.

Now retired down in Hilton Head, SC: a cup of Joe and The Post digital on my iPad is how I begin each morning earlier than a spherical of golf.

Thank you, Cindy Adams, for reminding your readers of one of the best information, sports activities and gossip New York has to supply — and cheers to Mr. Rupert Murdoch and household for not caving in to the crazies.

Moped mayhem

I get significantly offended when crime occurs to kids (“Kid dragged in Qns.,” Nov. 15).

My coronary heart goes out to Julia Montiel, and I’m grateful she wasn’t critically bodily injured.

For the previous couple of years, frequent courtesies have gone within the crapper, together with any respect for guidelines relating to sidewalks.

Moped and bike-riders rampantly journey on sidewalks, and police refusal to implement the legislation and cease those that deliver automobiles onto sidewalks has resulted in it turning into an on a regular basis sight. This, in flip, has created alternatives for criminals to journey up onto a sidewalk to assault pedestrians, then get away quick.

We would reduce down on these chain-snatching, dog-snatching, drive-up crimes if each single time somebody is caught driving on a sidewalk the police would positive them or take their bike or moped.

Julia, I’m sorry you had this horrible expertise and can really feel higher quickly. The mayor and NYPD must make a crackdown on misuse of sidewalks a precedence.

Promoting rookies

Why the uproar over NYPD ex-chief Dermot Shea’s son getting promoted to detective after just one yr on patrol to NYPD detective (“Shea’s son ‘fast-tracked,’ ” Oct. 17)?

This has been occurring because the caveman days. It’s the morale killer of the NYPD. Others get caught on patrol for many of their profession, whereas some rookie that doesn’t know his ass from his elbow will get promoted.
