Re “Money, money ev­ery­where, but not a drop for a wall” (Larry Elder, Jan. 7): Trump did not just run on the wall in his elec­tion plat­form. It was a wall that he said Mex­ico would pay for. It’s not like he slipped up one time and said this, he ham­mered the Mex­ico side of that coin in ev­ery speech. So to fault the Democrats for not want­ing to pay for it is pretty disin­gen­u­ous. If he made $5 bil­lion in cuts and they wouldn’t agree to it, then I would agree with Mr. Elder’s piece. I just don’t see how any Demo­crat could ever ap­prove $5 bil­lion spent on some­thing that was sup­posed to be free. We get an­gry at gov­ern­ment waste on buy­ing $1,000 toi­let seats but this is waste on an as­tro­nom­i­cal level. JEFF SYER BOWMANVILLE (Sec­tions of the wall have been funded and paid for in the past un­der both Demo­cratic and Repub­li­can pres­i­dents. And you’re cor­rect, he didn’t once miss a chance to talk about the wall, and Trump needs to make progress on it for the next elec­tion if he wants to keep ham­mer­ing away at the Democrats)
