Tuckahoe, N.Y.: So “Not even fish are safe from Trump,” Charles Witek (Op-Ed, Dec. 16)? Well they’re not safe from you either, Mr. self-proclaimed “recreational fisherman.”

Fish are intelligent, sociable, sentient and want to keep their life just like you do, but for fun, you trick them into biting down on a baited sharp hook and suffocate them by yanking them out of the water...for kicks. You cause suffering, in addition to overfishing of the oceans, for your good time. Be a good citizen and first do your part to end such shameful, destructive torture of innocent beings before you criticize others. Instead of pointing a finger, set an example for the world and for Donald Trump: Make the planet a kinder, healthier place with your own actions, by not killing living beings who have the right to share this Earth in peace.
