We are more than angry that President Trump continues to push for a “wall” and is willing to shut down major portions of the government, unless he and his base are handed $5.6 billion dollars to protect us from a vaporous security crisis at the Mexican border. Meanwhile, thousands of our own citizens still wait for FEMA aid. How many families are living in temporary housing, lives completely turned upside down and in need of immediate help from our government? One has to wonder at the president’s inability to prioritize.
Why can’t Congress put an end to this ridiculous political comedy and get on with Trump’s promise to “Make America Great Again,” even without him. – Barton and Sharon Holtz Pittsboro
