Hate and lies are dividing our country. The Associated Press was allowed to put a lie about or president in our newspaper. They surely didn’t hear both sides of what went on in the meeting with our president, Democrats and the Republicans concerning the border wall.

Pelosi and Schumer came out first. Schumer said the president had a temper tantrum, slammed his hand on the table and walked out of the meeting. He didn’t do that according to what the vice president and other said who also were in the meeting.

Schumer said to sign the bills they already passed so the government would open. These bills did not include the wall. Democrats said if he would sign them in 30 days they would talk about it. The president asked Pelosi if she would agree to build a wall if he signed their bills. She said no, that there will never be a wall.

He got up and calmly walked out telling them that all of this was a waste of his time.

Schumer said Trump was not fit to be president. I say he is more fit than a lot of presidents before him. He works hard and has got a lot done for us poor people, our country’s economy and welfare. I trust our president. He is speaking and doing for the American people like no other president I’ve ever known.

If I were Pelosi, I would be ashamed denying the American people a wall to keep us safe. Get rid of your wall around your mansions that keeps your family safe.

God protect America.
