Build that wall

The Washington Post Sunday - - SUNDAY OPINION -

Re­gard­ing the July 18 Metro ar­ti­cle “Pad­dlers say Trump se­cu­rity zone is all wet”:

In­stead of clos­ing roughly two miles of the Po­tomac River so that Pres­i­dent Trump can have a swell time at his pri­vate club in Loudoun County, he should build a wall — and he should pay for it. Mr. Trump took it upon him­self to re­move from the shore­line hun­dreds of trees that pro­vided a vis­ual bar­rier be­tween the golf course and the river. So now, let him and his very wealthy mem­bers suf­fer the con­se­quences, and he and they can view the wall as a re­minder of his ut­ter dis­re­gard for his neigh­bors.

This would be a pro­por­tional re­sponse and much more rea­son­able for the hard­work­ing Amer­i­cans whom Mr. Trump so loudly pro­fesses to rep­re­sent. With any luck at all, it can be torn down in less than three-and- a-half years. Neil Stein­berg, Lees­burg
