Letter: Why Trump will quit race

I predict that Donald Trump will withdraw from the presidential race sooner than later.

Whatever you think of the man, it is clear his presidency would not be business/politics as usual, and the powers that be will never risk that.

If he is, in fact, worth $10 billion, he also has a great deal of commercial debt. Now that it appears he might not be self-destructing, the international banksters who run the country — and the world — will put the squeeze on him sufficient to jeopardize his empire and perhaps even his personal fortune. “The Donald” may be a high roller, but he is not in their league by a long shot.

And he will go relatively quietly, believe it or not. I can’t begin to imagine the excuse that will come out of his mouth but, whatever else, it will be self-preserving.
