Trump has an obli­ga­tion to build his bor­der wall

The Weekend Australian - - COMMENTARY -

emer­gency. Don­ald Trump gets it. It’s about time the Democrats did too — the crit­i­cal roles of a sovereign gov­ern­ment are to pro­tect the na­tion’s bor­ders and to act in the best in­ter­ests of its own cit­i­zens. Mandy Macmil­lan, Sin­gle­ton, NSW Un­der the US Con­sti­tu­tion, the spend­ing power rests with congress and no pres­i­dent can usurp that power. The pres­i­dent of the day has no power to spend a sin­gle dol­lar with­out the ap­proval of congress. Bill Mathew, Parkville, Vic there must be a bet­ter way of fix­ing the prob­lem but, with­out a re­al­is­tic sug­ges­tion, it is just an empty ges­ture.

Mil­lions of Amer­i­cans voted for Trump be­cause he said he would build a wall. It is not just his wall, it is also the wall of all of those Amer­i­cans. Ray War­ren, Man­durah, WA
