Mexico won’t pay? So glad you will

    To the Editor:
    For as long as Donald Trump had been running for the office of the President of the United States, he promised that Mexico would pay for a wall at the border.
    So to those who believed it and voted for him, did you ever think that your hard-earned money that you pay for taxes will now be diverted to pay for a wall that Trump promised Mexico would pay for?
    By diverting your taxes to the wall, that means less tax dollars will go towards the education of your children, less maintenance for bridges and roads, less subsidy to lower your health care costs, less help to farmers to lower food prices, less money to care for our veterans, less money to solve the opioid crisis caused by Chinese illegal drugs coming by ship or airplane, less money to the military to protect our country.
    Mexico won’t pay? So glad you will.
