Writer was wrong about Democrats’ plans

I would like to comment on parts of the letter Carl Kelly wrote on Jan. 26. He states the Dems are obstructing because they don’t want President Donald Trump to fulfill a “a much needed campaign promise.”

Trump promised to “build a big beautiful wall, and MEXICO would pay for it.” It seems he broke his promise when he conceded Mexico would not pay for his wall. As for “much needed,” it is mostly Trump’s base that believes that. Most polls show that a majority of Americans think it’s not needed, especially if the taxpayers will have to pay for it.

Also, maybe Mr. Kelly forgot Trump said he “would be glad to own the shut down.”

Sad, indeed!!
