    subject and predicate for (let's not fight with him)

    Let's not fight with him.


    How to identify subject and predicate in this sentence?
    Could you isolate `subject and predicate' in this sentence for me?

    The subject is in green, the predicate in purple.

    Let's not fight with him

    "Let's" ("Let's" ("Let us") is the subject even though "us" is in the objective case?

    Of course I believe you. (I know the subject of that sentence isn't "him".)
