Ego-driven wall pro­ject

Houston Chronicle Sunday - - OUTLOOK -

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
