Ego-driven wall project
Regarding “Trump widens rift with Congress” (Page A1, Thursday), Donald Trump never promised to build a wall with our money. His promise was consistent with his background as a borrow-and-build developer to build a wall with other people’s money and make Mexico pay for it.
Borrow and build and using other people’s money as business principles also need a healthy level of trust, honesty and mutual respect or the result is bankruptcy. While those methods might have worked for Trump in Atlantic City, they won’t work in Washington. Mutual respect has to start with self-respect; perhaps Trump has confused a massive ego with self-respect. Bill Turney, Houston
