Im­me­di­ate aid

The News & Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion -

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
