Recently on the “Morning Joe” program on MSNBC, Rep. Jim Jordan, a Republican from Ohio, kept repeating ad nauseum that the people elected Republicans to build a wall, etc. and that this “was what the American people elected us to do.”

Donald Trump was elected solely because he was not Hillary Clinton (“Trump fans flock to Mar-a-Lago for first-of-its-kind celebration,” Jan. 19). House members are elected in their districts for various reasons, probably very few dealing with immigration or other national issues. U.S. senators are more likely to be elected due to some national issues, but still due to state issues.

The president’s idea of negotiating is that if you give me everything I want, then I will approve; if not, then you want “weak borders,” “criminals entering the country” and “a weak military.”

This great deal-maker has yet to make a deal with anybody, nationally or internationally!
