Letters: Donald Trump wants to make it easier to sue for libel. Seriously?

Re “Burned by book, Trump takes issue with nation's libel laws” (sacbee.com, Jan. 10): Donald Trump wants to make it easier to sue for things said about him that he doesn't like. He claims that it is not right that a person can say or print falsehoods and then reap gains from them. Really? Trump began his political run by falsely claiming that President Obama was not born in the United States. Later, among the hundreds of falsehoods leading to the primary in 2016, he claimed that Ted Cruz's father was part of an assassination plot. When it involves libel or slander Donald Trump is the grand master.
