On Sunday, while Houston residents were trying to stay above water, Donald Trump wasn’t looking for ways to help the Texans is despair. Instead, Trump was tweeting about having México pay for the wall that the nation can ill-afford, especially now after the devastation from Hurricane Harvey. Someone needs to pay to get Houston and the rest of Texas back on its feet. That’ll be tax monies that have yet to be budgeted. But Trump doesn’t understand that. Trump is obsessed with The Wall.
It will take years and lots of taxpayer monies to recover from the devastation from Hurricane Harvey. This is not the time to tweet about The Wall. It is the time to focus on those in need.
However, as Trump tweeted about The Wall and NAFTA, the Mexican government responded with a simple answer, the Government of México “takes this opportunity to express its full solidarity with the people and government of the United States as a result of the damages caused by Hurricane Harvey in Texas…as good neighbors should always do in trying times.”
Clearly, there is one government that understands that the people in the path of the devastation of Hurricane Harvey don’t really care about The Wall nor who will pay for it. They care about how the government will respond in their time of need.
The Donald Trump administration responded by tweeting about The Wall, while the government of México responded by offering to help the people of Texas.
Clearly one government gets it, while the other has no clue.
As my government stated, I and I am sure many of my Mexican brethren, stand ready to help those in Texas who need help in any way we can.
