BUILD THE WALL

Toronto Sun - - COMMENT -

Re “Trump’s wall is not the an­swer” (Farzana Hassan, Jan. 11): Wow! Read­ing this col­umn about Trump and his ac­tions to build the wall he promised re­minded me of what fake news and CNN are all about. When I read her deroga­tory com­ments about the pres­i­dent, it made me re­al­ize how the pub­lic only hears and lis­tens to the left-lean­ing me­dia, of which the ma­jor­ity are ei­ther Lib­eral or Democrats. This is a par­al­lel in Canada also. When sta­tis­tics can’t lie and they show the ad­van­tages of a bar­rier sup­ported by all bor­der guards and the Depart­ment of Home­land Se­cu­rity, you do not hear these facts from the fake news sto­ries. Trump is not a smooth-talk­ing elite nor does he come across like an eru­dite politi­cian, but what you see is what you get. Trans­parency. He loves his coun­try in spite of the crap spewed about him and has de­vel­oped the strong­est econ­omy and jobs in the past many decades. Last but not least, don’t you wish we had lead­er­ship who would put their coun­try and peo­ple as first pri­or­ity in­stead of same old play safe by the rules of po­lit­i­cal cor­rect­ness?

(Trump and Trudeau both have dif­fer­ent styles, and de­pend­ing on who you ask, it’s de­bat­able who has been more suc­cess­ful. But Trump had bet­ter re­think his strat­egy to get the wall funded)
